Marshal Gingold - CustomerCLIENT SPOTLIGHT: Marshall Gingold
Marshall had been considering solar for his Sunnyvale home for some time, but since he used less than $100 of electricity per month, the economics weren’t working out.  In 2014, however, Marshall learned about SunWork and received a quote that he was happy with.  SunWork installed a 14-panel, 3.5 kW system that has been saving him more than $1,000 per year. He has been so enthusiastic about solar energy that he’s volunteered with both SunWork and Sunnyvale’s city-wide “Energize Sunnyvale” campaign, using his marketing talents to help spread the word about solar’s potential. READ MORE...

The system includes 33 panels and will generate enough electricity to cover the church’s entire electricity bill. The greening project at the church has also brought heightened awareness around recycling and other energy-efficiency improvements to the congregation.

What's up with PG&E's Net Metering?

.

PG&E recently moved to a new Net Metering (also known as Net Energy Metering or NEM) billing mechanism. Net Metering 2.0 is mostly the same as Net Metering 1.0, however there are a few changes including:

New Solar Customers on NEM2Bright Idea Light Bulb

  • $145 PG&E one time interconnection fee 
  • Can no longer avoid certain fees which reduce the value of
    solar energy sent back to the grid up to 10%

      Existing NEM1 Solar Customers    .

  • Grandfathered on NEM 1 for 20 years
    starting from the date of installation.
     
  • Can expand solar systems by up to 1 kW (AC) which is about
    1.15 kW (DC) before triggering a switch to NEM2.  
    Give us a call if you are thinking about expanding.
