Solar Sonoma County

Real Estate Broker/Owner BRE# 01325597

Here's yet another reason for Sonoma County Residents to be proud of our Sonoma County governmental leaders who are now paving the way for more alternative energy resources.  Called Solar Sonoma County they have announced joint plans to triple solar-generated electricity in the next three years.

The objective of this initiative is to make it easier for Sonoma County Residents to cost justify solar energy and become proactive in helping achieve our county's climate protection objectives. 

It appears that incentives may include a streamlined permit process and bank loans that encourage conversion.  These incentives, combined with the fact that the cost of solar installations is projected to decrease, are making it easier for citizens to make and justify a cost/benefit case for installing solar systems.

Way to go SoCo!

We are definitely going to have to move more towards wind and sun and away from oil.

This would be awesome.  I hope that it becomes a reality.  We still have a property in Santa Rosa and this would be quite interesting.  Please keep us posted on the progress.

I hope that solar becomes more common and the cost does go down.  We have a lot of sunshine in California and it seems like we should be trying to take advantage of it more.
