We help California meet its mandate to generate 33 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020

The prices of Solar Power Systems dropped by 9 to 12 percent in 2014.

Prices are going down for years now but this is spectacular.

Reason of the drop of prices are: competition of cours, more efficient installations and operations, scaling of the productions and sharp biddings.

More advantages of Solar Power

  • Prices have been dropped down by 49% since 2010
  • In the US, Solar Power is giving employment to 174,000 people
  • More than 25% of all new homes being built in Southern California are being constructed with solar power systems
  • California reaches 10 gigawatts (GW) of installed solar capacity – enough to power nearly 2.5 million homes
  • Because of sold (smart) solar power systems, the economy has been growing nearly 18 billion a year

More jobs and savings

The amount of solar currently installed in the US is 20 GW
A report prepared for the Solar Energy Industries Association outlines an aggressive plan to install 100 million SHC panels in the US by 2050. This action alone would create 50,250 new American jobs and save more than $61 billion in future energy costs.
