California has started to feel a sense of urgency and the shift to renewable energy utilization throughout the state. Over the year’s renewable energy has significantly decreased in price. This decrease in price has made renewable energy such as solar power more affordable and accessible for residents and businesses. California has declared and set a goal of 100% clean electric power by 2045. Policies have been set in place to push for this goal such as requiring every new home that is built whether that may be single or small multi-home to include solar panels starting in 2020.
The thought that we only have one option to receive our energy from a utility company has changed completely and we have seen an extreme shift to energy independence throughout the state of California. Cities and counties are turning to alternative choices that not only benefit them but also benefit the environment, making the communities they live in more sustainable. California is also making the shift to renewable power to protect the safety of its residents. Due to the effects of climate change, we are more vulnerable to rising sea levels and threatened by wildfires that are at times started by old equipment and winds that cause trees to damage power lines and start fires.
In the instance of solar power, it is plentiful at certain times of the day such as the middle of the day when the sun is at its highest. While generating an increased amount of power, the energy that is not used within the home or business gets sent back into the grid to be used. Due to your home producing an excess amount of energy you can get paid for sharing this energy. As a result, Californians are relying on power that is stored. Energy storage units are also available for your home or business in case of any power outage you will always be secured.
More importantly, California continuous its search to find the best energy solutions that are affordable, safe, and reliable while continuing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Solar Energy has become the solution for many residents of California. Specifically, we have seen a significant increase in solar energy choice in Coachella Valley. The areas of Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Thousand Palms, and many others are choosing solar for their homes and businesses to take advantage of these energy opportunities.
