Going Solar in Stockton, California
Stockton, California is a great place to go green, with a solar panel roof for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the great exposure to the sun. Couple that with the cost of converting to a solar system dropping across the entire state, and you have the perfect time for putting those solar panels on your roof.
Savings on Solar Panels in 2018
Low prices are always an incentive, but when considering switching your home or business to solar power, the long-term return on your investment (ROI) should also be a big consideration. Now is a great time for Stockton homeowners and businesses to check with solar energy companies and look into the average savings of converting from a conventional system to a solar energy system.
Why Convert to Solar Power Energy Now?
Solar energy has been, and continues to be, a political football that gets tossed around according to various state and federal political agendas. Right now, both state and federal incentives are in place to reduce the cost of a solar photovoltaic system to the most affordable levels ever. At Synergy Power, we are committed to not only designing and delivering the best possible solar panels for homes, but also for your specific needs and situation. We also want to help you take advantage of all incentives available to you. Based on a twenty-year average, the typical Stockton, California homeowner with a 5kW solar energy system can expect to increase the resale value of their home by a minimum of $15,000.00, using the value of homes sold in Stockton in 2017 that had solar systems.
Why Use Synergy Power for Your Solar System?
At Synergy Power, we are committed to you being completely happy with your solar energy system. We know that there are a lot of solar panel companies out there, and that your satisfaction is the key to our continued success. That’s why we do the entire job ourselves. We can guarantee the results. We begin our relationship with you by giving you a quote that includes:
- A roof assessment that tells us how much roof area is available for PV solar roof panels and how much sun they will get on an average basis.
- A production estimate that estimates how much power the solar roof tiles should produce in kilowatt hours (kWh) per year.
- The make and model of equipment being proposed. A solar installation consists of solar panels, racks to attach the panels to your roof, and an inverter to change DC (direct current) power from the panels to AC (alternating current) that runs household appliances. The quote includes the make, model, and number of each component being proposed.
- Solar installation costs are quoted in dollars-per-watt with average costs ranging between $2.50 and $4.50 per watt. System costs depend on several factors, including the size of the solar panel installation, and the condition of your roof. Note that the installation size is measured in kilowatts (kW), which means, for example, that a 5-kW system at $3.00 / watt would have a total cost of $15,000.00
- Available incentives from both the state of California and the federal government, as well as your utility company incentives.
- A payback estimate that uses the production estimate, incentives, and estimated electricity savings to give you a break-even point along with how much you will save over the life of the panels.

Another important consideration for homeowners in the state of California considering solar panel installation is that the State exempts solar installations for property tax. This is good news as the value of your home can increase thousands of dollars by adding a solar energy system. In fact, if you decrease your electricity bill by somewhere around $1,000 per year real-estate agents estimate that you’ve increased the value of your home by between $15,000 and $20,000, which will not be added to your taxable property value base. Additionally, a study conducted by researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, shows that homes with solar systems actually sell faster than homes without a solar photovoltaic system.
How Do I Keep My Solar Panels Clean?
At Synergy Power, we recommend that you have maintenance performed on your solar panel roof tiles once or twice a year. Much like servicing a furnace or cleaning a fire place, maintaining clean solar panels means maintaining good production from them and your overall system. Many panels are easy to reach and are as easy to wash as your dishes. A little soap and water on a sponge and you’ll keep the system running effectively. Another great solution is a vinegar and water solution. Be sure not to use soap that leaves a solar panel too shiny as that will reflect rather than absorb sunlight. You can also simply call us, and we will be happy to clean the solar panels for you. It is up to you, but as any good auto mechanic will attest, a clean, well-maintained system works well and lasts longer. However, if time gets away from you, or some unforeseen circumstance happens, Synergy Power can perform solar panel repairs for you as well.
The City of Stockton
Like many towns throughout the state, Stockton was founded as a result of the California Gold Rush in 1849. Its location provided an easy place for trade and transportation to other mines in the area, at the time. Since that time, Stockton has grown exponentially. It is home to the University of the Pacific, the oldest university in California. Furthermore, it is home to the Stockton Symphony, Stockton Arena, and The Bob Hope Theater, making Stockton a hub for the performing arts. Stockton is known as a progressive, forward-thinking community, so it is easy to see why solar power energy is becoming so popular in the area.
