Finding The Best Solar Installation In Southern California

Trivia: The hottest temperature on Earth was recorded in Furnace Creek in Southern California. While temps regularly get as high as 130° in Death Valley, the world record was set in 1931 at 134°.

Southern California is known around the world for its great weather. The beautiful sky and warm temperatures make Southern California cities great places to live and do business. It also has a reputation across the world as the best place for renewable energy. Our diverse climates create great wind and solar energy opportunities.

California serves unofficially as the cultural center of the entire country. Laws and courts in California usually work as the prototypes for state governments all over America. For over 50 years, Southern California has launched several campaigns to encourage state-wide homeowners and businesses to “Go Green”.

That’s no surprise to us, Option One Solar has been in the electrical contractor business for just as long. We’ve been helping homeowners with “space-program” caliber electrical work since 1970 as J&L Electric, and we still do! We are one of the few solar companies that is licensed and insured to do all of the work ourselves. That means we can provide the best and most experienced services for your home, wherever you live in Southern California.

Why Is Solar Energy So Popular In Southern California?

There is a reason California is known as The Golden State. The perfect weather lasts almost all year long, and the rich sunlight is always shining. But that’s not the only reason that Southern California is such a great place for solar energy.

The Best Climate For Solar Energy

The limitless sunlight in California provides enough electricity in a single hour to provide energy to the entire state for a year! The brilliant weather in Southern California is ideal for capturing the sun’s power. California and its surrounding states capture the most solar radiation in the entire nation. Our state receives an average of 7 hours of solar radiation, while the rest of America gets an average of 5.

High Electricity Bills

Homeowners in Southern California can pay close to 30% above the national average for their electricity. Residents can get solar panel installation from top-rated solar energy companies and save more money than most homeowners across the country. That makes going solar in California an easy decision.

The Best Investment

Option One Solar offers no-cost, risk-free service helping thousands of Southern California residents get superior solar installation and top-notch electrical contractor service. Use our free quote request form and review your best options to lower your electricity bill. With the federal solar tax credit (or ITC) and other residential solar programs providing great investment savings, and the cost of solar tech getting lower each year, solar owners in Southern California typically see a return on solar panel investment in under 6 years. 

With a solar panel system from Option One, you establish a low fixed cost for your electricity for the entire lifetime of the panels. And your energy savings will keep growing over time. Unlike your electricity bills, where you can expect a rate increase of at least 10% each year after 2021. Invest money from enormous electricity bills back into your home, and gain your energy independence with Option One Solar.

The Best Solar Company

When you decide that solar is the best option for your home, you should go with a local business near you that can provide installation and service for 25 years or more. Many solar salesmen use third-party contractors, which means they can’t provide service even if they wanted to. Go with a company that does it’s own work!

A Solar Company You Can Trust

Option One Solar has been voted the best company for solar installation and service, by the people and for the people—for 5 years and going. We are a local business that is established and available to provide support for the warranties on your solar equipment. Option One is licensed as both a solar installer and a general electrical contractor. We can provide service for any electrical problems in your home, solar tech is the easy part.

Choosing The Right Solar Company

When shopping for the right solar company, we advise you to hire a company that has its own license. You can always check for the company’s license at the Contractors State Licence Board website (check for C-46 Solar Contractor License Classification). Make sure the license matches the name of the company you are going to hire, otherwise getting service for your system can be a huge headache in the long run.

If you are looking for the best solar company in Southern California—Option One Solar is the obvious choice. As the leading provider of both commercial and residential solar panel installation in all of San Bernardino County, we can design and install your solar power system from start to finish and beyond. We will provide any maintenance service you need, and cover your solar panel system with an industry leading “bumper-to-bumper” warranty for 25 years.

Trust me, I had my solar installed by another company but Option One Solar's crew were night-and day-different -- no stress and did not bother us at all.

They were so incredibly helpful every step of the process and were flexible enough to accommodate me when I needed to make changes to the location of our ground-mount array, the configuration, and switching between financing options in the middle of the project. Really great, professional people and company.

Option One installed my system in 2015. I recently had a panel fail and it wasn't under warranty (as the mfr went out of business), but Scott stepped up and his crew took care of it for me.

Called today and spoke with one of your staff members (Esmeralda) she was very nice, patient, friendly, and most importantly very helpful in finding me exactly what I was looking for... She’s definitely the type of employee you want taking your calls.

KC (from Option One) answered most of my questions immediately, and when something came up he couldn't answer, he did the research and got back to me promptly. Off-grid vs on, battery backup alternatives, the extension of the federal subsidy were all issues he helped me with. Even over the holidays, when most offices are not so responsive, Option One was a resource I could turn to.

Knowledgeable, professional, and patient. I ask a lot of questions. Option One explained all the options, helped me calculate the requirements and the cost, and always kept me in the loop. Look no further, if you want an excellent experience for your solar project.

I thought I needed to buy more (panels) to add to My home. Option One took the time to listen to what was going on and instead of them taking Advantage of a Female and selling me more which I didn’t need they told me what I needed to do. They followed up with me and made sure I did it. Thanks Option One, you saved me from spending $35,000 that I didn’t need to.
