Design a system for me

Step 1. Education
Step 2. Gather PG&E Information
Look at a previous bill or log into PG&E's website 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
Use the 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
The SmartSolar program provides information and technical assistance on energy efficiency and solar installations.
