Benefits

Since the solar system is owned by this customer and is now part of the property, this customer’s property value has increased dramatically. Should this customer ever choose to sell this facility, a sizable premium can be added to the sale price due to the fact that this property generates the electricity that it consumes. Additionally, this project reduces the carbon footprint that this customer creates by being in business. This benefit to society feels right. Finally, this project benefits PG&E and the State of California by helping both to meet their renewable energy goals.
