Design a system for me
Step 1. Education
energy efficiency, solar thermal & solar photovoltaics
Step 2. Gather PG&E Information
Look at a previous bill or log into
to find the actual kWh and billing. This will be input to size a solar energy system to your energy consumption and needs
Step 3. Calculate System Cost & Savings
UC Berkeley solar calculator
to get an estimate of the cost of going solar, based on your current electricity use. From the "Results", write down roof space (sq.ft) your system requires.
Step 4. See your Roof Potential
(ex. 1740 Curtis St, 94702)
Step 5. Contact SmartSolar
provides information and technical assistance on energy efficiency and solar installations.

Did you know:
100 sq. ft of solar thermal panels reduces 3,000 lbs of CO2, the same amount of CO2 reduced by 62 trees
100 sq. ft of solar PV panels reduces 1,500 lbs of CO2, the same amount of CO2 reduced by 31 trees
