Los Angeles is a sun-drenched city of nearly 4 million. Because of its abundant sunshine, incentives, and other variables, the City of Angels has routinely been one of the best communities in the United States to install residential solar energy systems. In fact, LA has a cumulative solar capacity of 132 megawatts, which is more solar power capacity than 39 states. That’s a lot of sunlight and a lot of energy.
But does it make sense for Los Angelinos to install solar panels on the rooftops of their homes? At first, the initial outlay of money might seem unaffordable even with incentives and tax credits. But over time, solar energy will save money-perhaps a lot of it. And if you live in Los Angeles you can save more money than in many other communities.
