Inside View With Steve Dollens of SunnyCal Solar

San Andreas, CA...Inside View # 337 with Host John Hamilton interviewing Steve Dollens on the Benefits of Solar.

SunnyCal Solar Inc, was birthed in 2011 to provide one-stop solutions for infrastructure and energy management projects. Our ambition is to provide customers with comprehensive solutions with a single point of contact. Our staff has decades of experience in the areas of electrical and solar engineering.

SunnyCal hosts a deep skill-set including: energy management, electrical contracting, solar power system design and installation.

Solar electric systems empower owners to reduce cost and dependence on utility companies. Solar electric installations installed on roof-top or the ground can offset electric charges and include battery backup.

Solar systems can produce electrical power or heat for home or business. PV solar electric systems may include battery backup if desired, but most merely lower the utility bill.

Best Move To Make

I installed an 11Kw ground system in 2014.
I was the owner builder.
I used a Solar Edge inverter with optimisers, and Solar World modules.
2 arrays of 20 - 275 watt panels.
It is a grid tie system , I have an 8,200 watt portable generator for back-up. It powers the entire house , thru a transfer switch at the meter, away from the house.

In 2 more years , I will have my system paid off from my generation.
I have an ag well also on my PG&E NEMA , the solar pays for all usage, with a credit left over.

I rate my decision to install solar as one of the best additions to my farm.

      If you are thinking of installing. solar, now is the time before the government subsidies are eliminated. The current rebate is 26% but getting smaller.

      No plug for any specific company, but locally, Gold Electric
      in Murphy’s does great work

    Yes, solar is a big rip-off. I love giving money away to PG&E. So if the state of California takes them over, just imagine what the State is going to tax you, the state with some of the highest taxes in the Nation?
    So please use your air-conditioning this summer, and don't forget to buy electric heaters NOW while they are on sale.
    For all the people who are considering upgrading, or remodeling your home, please consider all electric throughout your home.
    Like Einstein above did.
    We haven't had a PG&E bill for three years, I sure miss writing that bill off on the checking account every month.

    Installed a few years back and I pretty much break even. Plus it's the right thing to do and am not dependent on the whims of PG&E.

Not going back to Sierra Hills Market or Angels Market until they follow public health guidelines. Hardly a mask in sight among shoppers and staff and definitely no social distancing guidelines in place. It's like they think the virus is gone.
