Learn about financing, tax benefits and properly sizing your system

An initial investment in clean energy can save you money for years to come. PG&E will help you make informed decisions to bring private rooftop solar and renewable energy to your home.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no financial benefit to installing a system larger than your home needs. Compensation for excess generation through Net Surplus Compensation (NSC) is set by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) at roughly two to four cents per kWh. This amount does not justify the cost of an oversized system.

Network upgrades might be needed before you can install a system. Your contractor works with PG&E to determine whether upgrades are required, and to inform you of any additional costs.
