The home tour was sponsored by Eco-Home Network, a Los Angeles environmental group.
Attendees at the open house saw close up a utility interconnect PV system and learned
about PV programs and incentives created as part of Californias deregulated utility
market. Under Assembly Bill 1890 and Senate Bill 90, the $3/Watt buy-down is available to
people installing PV systems living in investor owned utility (IOU) service areas.
IOUs include Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric and Pacific
Gas & Electric. The buy-down can reduce system cost up to 50%. The system is net
metered which means energy not used will be sold back or credited to the
homeowner at full value.
