Rooftop solar saves California ratepayers $192 million [Video]

Solar energy continues to prove its long-term viability and cost savings. Although end users have long realized the advantages of this source of clean, renewable energy, even those who do not use it are seeing the benefits.

Thanks to materially lower load forecast levels in California, the state recently canceled 13 transmission projects planned in Pacific Gas & Electric Territory, according to GreenTech Media. This move will save ratepayers $192 million in projected costs.

California policymakers decided to cut the 13 projects due to the increased efficiency of rooftop solar PV panels. At Trina Solar, we’re committed to providing affordable and reliable rooftop solar panels to help lower the cost burden for ratepayers everywhere.
