Rising SCE Electricity Costs – No Alternative

Over the last few years, Irvine residents have seen a steadily increasing electricity bill from Southern California Edison. Experiencing more than a 4% increase year-over-year increases in their electricity rates over the last 10 years. The recent shift towards Time-of-Use (TOU) will also have a substantial impact on how much you’re paying for electricity. Electricity usage in time-of-use will be classified into a 3-tier system with your electricity costs being as high as $.43/kwh. As of 2019, Southern California Edison’s Tier 3 the ‘Super User’ Surcharge is > 400% of baseline allocation. For SCE customers who reach Tier 3, it can have a significant impact on your electric bill. With how large the typical home in Villa Park is, that means it is even easier for you to above the baseline allocation limits. Making the shift towards TOU more expensive for most Irvine homes.

Available Solar Incentives for the Irvine Community

Irvine is one of the most energy-efficient state in America and consequently enjoys great benefits when it comes to going solar. If you’re looking to purchase your solar energy system vs. lease, and incur a federal tax liability there are existing incentives to take advantage of.

The total amount of the solar tax credit can be calculated fairly easily. The tax credit amount is computed by taking thirty (30) percent of the solar system installation cost. 

For instance, if your solar energy system costs $25,000 and is installed in 2019, your tax credit would be $25,000 x 30%= $7,000. 

If you install your solar energy system in 2020, for the same system, your tax credit would be $25,000 x 26%= $6,500.

That means there is a $500 difference if you went solar in 2019 to 2020 for a system that costs $25,000.

Pro Tip: Federal Tax Incentives are only eligible for individuals who own their solar panel system. Does not qualify for lease/PPA.
