San Francisco, CA, located on the northern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, is unofficial capital of the San Francisco Bay Area which includes San Jose and Oakland. With a 2010 population of approximately 800,000 and a land area of about 47 miles, San Francisco has a density of approximately 17,100 people per square mile which is the most densely populate area in California and second most densely populated area in the U.S.
San Francisco has always been at the forefront of technological innovation, particularly in the green energy sector — and photovoltaic technology has been no exception. Not only is San Francisco home to some of the top solar entrepreneurs and engineers but it has also become one of the best places in California to look into renewable energy, particularly solar energy.
Unfortunately, PG&E charges San Francisco residents some of the highest prices in the country for electricity and as the cost of electricity increases throughout California, customers of PG&E may be feel the pain more than others. What this means is there is opportunity for San Francisco residents to invest in solar energy for their homes and not only save money on their utility costs immediately but also insulate themselves from additional spikes in price due to high demand. And with large number of California solar rebates and unique solar financing arrangements available to help offset the up front cost of solar, it has never been a better time for San Francisco residents to go solar.
