California

California, “The Golden State,” is located on the West Coast of the United States, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, Oregon to the north, Nevada and Arizona to the west and the Mexican state of Baja California to the south. California is the most populous state in America with 38 million people — one in eight of the people who live in the United States.  California is also the third largest state in terms of area (after Alaska and Texas).  California contains the nation’s second most populous census statistical area (Greater Los Angeles) and the fifth most populous (San Francisco Bay Area), and eight of the nation’s 50 most populated cities: Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach and Oakland.

The name California is most commonly believed to have derived from a fictional paradise peopled by Black Amazons and ruled by Queen Calafia. The fictional kingdom of Queen Calafia, according to Montalvo, was said to be a remote land inhabited by griffins and other strange beasts, and rich in gold.

At least half of the fruit produced in the United States is now grown in California, and the state also leads in the production of vegetables. Other important contributors to the state’s economy include aerospace, education, manufacturing, and high-tech industry. If it were a country, California would be the 8th or 9th largest economy in the world and 34th most populous.

Climate

Much of California has a Mediterranean climate, with cool, rainy winters and dry summers. The cool California Current offshore often creates summer fog near the coast. Farther inland, there are colder winters and hotter summers. Perfect for Solar Power applications, California sees some 3055 sunny hours annually, and many California cities see nearly 300 sunny days per year, compared to an average of 205 sunny days a year for all U.S. cities.

Households

Nearly 11 percent of all households in the United States are in California. The “Golden State” has more than 11.5 million households, 35.8 percent of which have children under 18 in them. The average size per household is 2.87 people and the average California family size is 3.43 people.

Solar Energy

California is No. 1 in Solar

California continues to be the leading solar market in the United States. A plethora of sunny days combined with supportive solar policies have created an ideal solar market. As older fossil-fired and nuclear generation plants (such as SONGS) come offline, statewide carbon reduction efforts escalate, and load growth increases (due, in part, to the anticipated increased deployment of electric vehicles), additional renewable energy procurement will be required within California. These factors, as well as changing consumer behaviors related to electricity production and delivery, offer substantial opportunities to continue to grow the solar energy market in California.

Cities in California dominate a list of top 20 cities by total solar capacity, but there were some surprises in the rankings compiled by an environmentalist group, including San Antonio, Indianapolis, and New Orleans.

Los Angeles topped the list with 132 megawatts of solar capacity, including rooftop residential and utility-scale projects installed by the end of 2013, Environment America Research & Policy Center said in a report released Thursday.

San Diego was No. 2, and Phoenix, Ariz., was in third place, with 107 megawatts and 96 megawatts, respectively, of solar capacity. San Jose, Calif. and Honolulu rounded out the top five.

San Antonio and Indianapolis, however, are ahead of New York City, which took eighth place, and San Francisco, which took ninth. Denver is No. 10, besting No. 11 New Orleans by just 3 megawatts – 22 megawatts for New Orleans compared with Denver’s 25 megawatts, according to the group.

The study found that the 20 cities, representing 0.1% of the U.S. land area, account for 7% of the country’s solar power capacity. “These top 20 cities contain more solar power today than was installed in the entire U.S. just six years ago,” the report said.

The remaining top 20 cities by solar capacity were Sacramento, Calif., Jacksonville, Fla.; Albuquerque; Portland, Ore.; Austin, Texas; Las Vegas; Newark, N.J.; Raleigh, N.C.; and Boston.

California Solar Industry Facts:

  • There are currently more than 2,226 solar companies at work throughout the value chain in California, employing 54,700 people.
  • In 2014, California installed 4,316 MW of solar electric capacity, ranking it 1st nationally.
  • The 10,695 MW of solar energy currently installed in California ranks the state first in the country in installed solar capacity.  There is enough solar energy installed in the state to power 2,599,000 homes.
  • In 2014, $11.773 billion was invested on solar installations in California.  This represents a 66% increase over the previous year, and is expected to grow again this year.
  • Average installed residential and commercial photovoltaic system prices in California have fallen by 4% in the last year. National Prices have also dropped steadily — by 12% from last year and 45% from 2010.

California leads the way for solar generation

California is far and away the nation’s leader in the solar industry. According to the state’s website, there are more than 242,000 solar projects throughout the state with 2,279 megawatts installed. Los Angeles leads with 238 megawatts, and San Diego comes in second with 182 megawatts. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the next leading states are:

  • Arizona
  • North Carolina
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • Hawaii
  • Georgia
  • Texas
  • New York

California Photovoltaics

In 2011, California’s goal to install 3,000 MW by 2016 was expanded to 12,000 MW by 2020. California has more photovoltaics installed than any other state, and 48% of the total in 2010. For the first time in 2008 the installed photovoltaics exceeded the state’s 354 MW of solar thermal (CSP).  There are plans to build over 15,000 MW of utility scale photovoltaic plants in California. At the end of 2012, small systems of less than 10 kWp were averaging $5.39/W, and large systems of over 500 kWp were averaging $2.77/W.

California has the technical potential to install 76,000 MW of rooftop solar panels, which would generate 106,411 GWh/year, about 41% of the total electricity used in California in 2012. 76 GW, though, is twice as much electricity as is used in one hour, which will require that on a sunny day, half of the noon output will need to be stored, for example by producing hydrogen

Solar Financial Incentives in California

For your Residential Solar Financing in California, the SunLender programs can save you money while ensuring that the process is easy for you. In addition the money you can save with SunLender, Solar Power Systems installed in California can save homeowners money through several other programs.

Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power (LADWP) and California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard

California has the most ambitious renewable portfolio standard (RPS) in the country. The state is required to source at least 33% of its power from renewables by 2020. If not, utilities get slapped with sizable fees. LADWP was up to 20% by 2010, and well ahead of schedule. Compared to the other three utilities it’s the furthest along. Southern California Edison (SCE) was up to 19% recently, so the competition is in hot pursuit.

One of the more common ways to meet the standard is to encourage renewable energy by purchasing their Renewable Energy Credits (REC). California allows utilities to achieve up to 25% of total compliance in this manner. You can bet that LADWP has its maximum 25% of various wind power RECs already stashed away.

California Solar Power Tax Credits

California has no particular state solar tax credits.

Go Solar California, State Rebate Program

As part of California’s $3.3 billion “Million Solar Roofs Program,” the Go Solar California! campaign has a goal to install 3,000 megawatts (MW) of new solar electricity capacity on homes and businesses by the end of 2016, making renewable energy an everyday reality.

California Solar Initiative (CSI): The California Solar Initiative is managed by PG&E in San Francisco and will provide incentives through 2016 for existing residential homes and existing and new commercial, industrial, and agricultural properties. The California Solar Initiative is designed to promote solar technologies and help lower the cost of solar systems that will serve California’s needs. CSI has set a goal of creating 3,000 megawatts (MW) of new, solar-generated electricity by 2017, moving California toward a cleaner energy future.

Single Family Affordable Solar Housing Program (SASH): Managed by the non-profit solar organization, GRID Alternatives, this program offers incentives to eligible low income households.

New Solar Housing Partnership (NSHP): Managed by the California Energy Commission, the New Solar Homes Partnership (NSHP) will provide $400 million worth of incentives through 2016 to encourage solar in new residential construction.

Multifamily Affordable Solar Housing Program (MASH): Building owners can install solar PV systems to offset energy used in common areas and utilize virtual net metering (VMN) to offset tenant loads. (*Please note, the incentive budget for the PG&E territory has been fully spent. Customers may still be added to a waitlist for funds as they become available.

Federal Tax Credits and Accelerated Depreciation

A 30 percent federal tax credit is offered for the installation of both residential and corporate solar energy systems. The tax credit is applied to the net cost after other rebates or grants have reduced the initial system cost. The current federal tax credit program is available through 2016.

Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit: Homeowners installing new solar PV and solar water heating systems are eligible for his 30 percent tax credit. Download IRS Form 5695.

Business Energy Investment Tax Credit: Businesses installing new solar PV and solar water heating systems are eligible for this 30 percent tax credit. Download IRS Form 3468.

Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS) + Bonus Depreciation.

Under the federal Modified Accelerated Cost-Recovery System (MACRS), businesses may recover renewable energy investments through depreciation deductions. For more information visit the US Department of Energy’s DSIRE website.

California’s Solar Market is Thriving

According to a report by Environment California, California’s solar market is thriving. Ten years ago, solar panels atop roofs were a rarity. Today, solar is taking hold in cities across California, from coastal metropolises such as San Francisco, to agricultural and industrial hubs in the Central Valley. In the past two years alone, the solar industry has installed more than 5,000 kilowatts of solar power in each of 10 different California cities.

Solar energy makes sense for California. Each new solar panel helps to clean our air, fight global warming, improve the reliability of our electricity grid, boost the economy, and create much-needed jobs.

California has just begun to tap into the vast potential of solar energy. Governments, utilities and the public should continue to work together toward a clean energy future.

Solar cities are the heart of California’s thriving solar market.

  • San Diego leads all California cities in terms of the number of solar installations on residential, commercial and government buildings, with more than 4,500 projects installed. San Diego also leads the state in terms of overall solar generation capacity, with nearly 37 megawatts (MW). If San Diego were a nation unto itself, it would rank among the top 25 nations in the world in terms of solar capacity, with more solar power than the entire nation of Mexico.
    •    Los Angeles ranks second, with more than 4,000 solar installations adding up to more than 36 MW of power generation capacity.
    •    San Jose ranks third, with more than 2,700 solar installations and 31 MW of solar electric generation capacity.
    •    In addition, San Francisco, Fresno, Bakersfield, Santa Rosa, Roseville, Clovis, Sacramento and Oakland all have more than 1,000 solar installations. In terms of generation capacity, Fresno, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Sacramento, and Santa Rosa all have more than 10 MW installed.

California’s solar market is geographically diverse. Solar installations are taking hold from coastal urban centers to mountain communities to towns in the Central Valley

  • Among cities with at least 50,000 residents, Santa Cruz, Clovis, Rocklin, Davis, Watsonville, and Roseville have the most solar installations per resident. Chico, Woodland, Rancho Cordova, Livermore, and Petaluma have the most solar generation capacity per resident.
    •    Among large towns, with between 10,000 and 50,000 residents, Sonoma (Sonoma County), Grass Valley (Nevada County) and Auburn (Placer County) have the most solar installations per resident. Sonoma, Auburn and Oroville (Butte County) lead in terms of solar capacity per resident.
    •    Solar has reached its greatest penetration per capita in the northern Bay Area, the Sierra foothills, and the Central Valley. The small towns of Sebastopol (Sonoma County), Newcastle (Placer County), and Nevada City (Nevada County) lead the state in terms of number of solar installations per resident. Herald (Sacramento County), Edwards Air Force Base (Kern County), and Lebec (Kern County) lead the state in terms of solar capacity per capita.

Despite the development of thriving solar markets in cities across the state, California has only just begun to capture its tremendous potential for solar power.

  • The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that the state could host more than 80,000 MW of rooftop solar in total – enough to generate more than a third as much electricity as California uses in a year.
    •    California has installed more than 1,000 MW of solar capacity on residential and commercial rooftops. Despite this substantial progress, vast potential remains to be developed.

California should continue to build the strength of its solar energy market.

Key steps include:

  • Ensure that the Million Solar Roofs Initiative reaches its goal by the end of 2016.
    •    Increase the use of solar energy systems in new construction by requiring all new homes to include solar power or other on-site renewable electricity generation by no later than 2020, and all new non-residential buildings by no later than 2030, through a net-zero energy building code requirement.
    •    Adopt a strong feed-in-tariff policy to encourage solar power installation on warehouses, parking lots and other sites with low on-site energy demands but high levels of sunshine.
    •    Maintain or enhance the incentive value of net metering and lift the cap on its use to allow all California ratepayers to benefit from going solar.
    •    Remove barriers to installing solar energy systems at the local and state levels by streamlining interconnection and permitting.
    •    Finally, California should continue to set ambitious clean energy goals – such as Governor Jerry Brown’s goal of installing 12,000 MW of distributed electricity generation in California by 2020 – and adopt innovative policies to achieve them.
