Installing a solar electric photovoltaic (PV) system provides you with a clean, renewable source of power that will pay for itself after a period of time, and then continue to save you money by providing some--if not all--of your electricity needs. Silicon Valley Power offers several resources to assist you in determining whether or not a PV system is right for you and how to evaluate bids for quality assurance and pricing. In addition, we provide financial incentives to residents who install PV systems on their homes or commercial facilities.
