Roof-top Solar – Is It Still Worth It?

In the past few years, Marin homeowners have seen their monthly energy bills skyrocket while the utility company has made $2.24 billion in profits just in 2023 alone – nice for their shareholders but tough on the consumer. The answer seems simple – invest in your home and not PG&E. With solar + battery, homeowners can offset up to 80-90% of their electricity bills. If you add an EV, you will save thousands of dollars at the gas pump as well.
