Time to switch to clean renewable energy

San Diego County Solar is a local business based in Carlsbad. Since 2010, they’ve pursued their mission  to help San Diego homeowners make the switch to clean, renewable energy. Their no-pressure, consultative approach can help you and your family learn more about solar energy and what it can do for your home.

“We take into account the customer’s needs, we educate people about how it all works, what it will cost and what they can expect from solar.

Then, if it makes sense to the homeowner, we install it.” said President Mike Davidson. “We offer the only the best products, expert system designs, and our own top-notch installers complete every installation. With over 90% of our business coming from referrals we spend little on marketing. So, everything that we provide adds up to a really good value where customers get great products and great service at very competitive prices.”

San Diego County Solar continues supporting the community that supports them through partnerships with the Magdelena Ecke YMCA, Carlsbad Boys & Girls Club, San Diego Food Bank, The First Step House and more. “We are committed to investing in our community” Davidson said. “We are a local company, so much of what we do stays here – money that comes into our hands spreads into the community. We also partner with a number of companies local to North County and greater San Diego.”

“One of the things that really attracted me to solar is that once you have the equipment, the fuel is free, so you’re making your own energy to power your house,” Davidson said. “Once you put the solar panels up, you don’t have to pay anything to anyone for the fuel–every day when the sun comes up you start making power.”

Many solar companies haven’t weathered the ups and downs of the industry. After 10 years, San Diego County Solar has been around long enough for customers to have confidence they’ll be here to service them well into the future. They attribute their longevity to building a loyal referral base one job at a time.

With solar, you can also store energy from your solar panels. This has become very popular with rural homeowners, as grid outages are now common during red flag warnings.

Connecting solar power to the latest battery technology can provide backup power for home essentials when the utility grid is down.

With the recent extension of the federal income tax credit, going solar also means thousands of dollars in tax savings.  Along with better financing available for solar through credit unions, there has never been an easier way to save money while increasing the value of your home. While electricity costs continue to rise, the cost of installing high-quality solar has come down, making this the perfect time to invest in renewable energy.

With the lowest prices of the year happening now, San Diego County Solar’s experienced professionals can help you save money and protect the environment, all while promising a COVID-conscious and safe experience from start to finish.
