SCEEP Maps Out Road to Solar Power for Curious Residents

Session outlines how to use solar power, how to get it, and how to save energy, money and taxes

Local homeowners are invited to attend a special free presentation on solar energy from 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 8 at Southern California Edison’s service center, 103 David Love Place.

The Homeowner Solar Information Session is provided by SCE through its California Solar Initiative. The presentation is sponsored by the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership, which includes SCE and local government agencies and is intended to help the community save energy, money and the environment. The program is funded by California utility ratepayers and administered by SCE under the auspices of the state Public Utilities Commission.

The Homeowner Solar Information Session is a 90-minute, nontechnical forum outlining how residents can benefit from the installation of a solar energy system. A Q&A session will follow.

“There are a number of important ways households will save money,” said Javier Burgos, SCE’s project manager for the California Solar Initiative. “In addition to the annual energy cost savings, there is a $2.20-per-watt incentive available through the California Solar Initiative, and a 30 percent federal tax credit.”

The event is free but space is limited. Light beverages and snacks will be provided. Click here to register online or call 866.970.9221. Click here for more information on the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership.

Marjorie Wass represents South County Energy Efficiency Partnership.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
