Understanding Residential Solar Energy Potential for Bakersfield

With its sunny climate – characterized by long, hot summers and mild winters – Bakersfield's solar resources are abundant. The city's geographical location gives it long hours of sunlight throughout the year, making it an ideal place for solar installations. In terms of energy potential, a typical home in Bakersfield can potentially generate more than enough electricity to meet its annual consumption solely through solar power. Local homeowners can take full advantage of this renewable resource to achieve self-sufficiency in their energy needs while also contributing substantially to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. We can evaluate your household’s current rates of energy consumption and walk you through what switching to solar could do for you.

What Is Net Metering and How Does It Work in Bakersfield?

Net metering is a billing mechanism that enables homeowners who generate their own electricity from solar power to feed electricity they do not use back into the grid. In Bakersfield, when your home’s solar system produces more electricity than you consume, this excess energy is exported to the local utility grid. If your panels are not producing sufficient energy on a cloudy or rainy day, the local grid will then feed you back energy and count it against the credits you have built up during periods of high solar energy production. Any net excess energy that is not used by your household will eventually be credited against your energy bill. California’s new “3.0” net metering rules incentivize homeowners to invest in a battery storage system, as you will be able to draw stored power from your battery during peak hours instead of the local grid, saving you additional money on your utility bill.
