Net Metering (NEM 3.0)

The nice thing about working with SWG Energy is we have 16 years of experience with the utility companies messing with the solar energy business almost every one of those 16 years. So when the utilities do something like change the game with the new NEM3 rules, the SWG Energy team knows how to combat them.

It’s clear that the new solution in NEM3 is solar energy + energy storage. Our solar + battery systems plans enable you to take 97% of your business away from the utility by producing your own energy and storing it in your own batteries. During Peak 4-9PM, you will never use the highest cost utility rates (71.6 cents to 82 cents per kWh) because the inverter is programmed to go to the battery for stored electricity… not the grid.

If NEM3 causes hundreds of thousands of people to only buy 3%, 2% or 1-1/2% of their energy from the utility companies…then our point of view is the utility companies didn’t think it through. What company would want to loose 97% or more of millions of customers business?

This utility company NEM3 rules change …will no doubt make California the #1 battery market in the U.S. But that’s no surprise because progressive Califor-nia has always been the U.S. leader in solar energy by a long shot !

Why solar in San Diego? 

We don’t have to tell you that San Diego’s energy costs are through the roof. In fact, San Diego’s electric bills are the highest on the mainland and let’s be real, only Hawaii beats us. But that’s where SWG Energy comes in. We’re here to give you a choice, to break away from SDGE and take control of your energy costs.

If you’re tired of paying those sky-high San Diego Gas & Electric bills, it’s time to do something about it. With SWG Energy, you can have your own personal power plant in the form of solar panels, right on your roof or property. Imagine, if your electric bill was $2,500, with an SWG Energy solar panel installation it could be as low as $50 a year. That’s a savings of $2,450 in the first year, and it just goes up from there with SDGE’s annual rate increases.

With the money you save, you could pay for your solar (panel) energy system in just a few short years. And the best part? You’ll reduce your dependence on SDGE by 97%, they’ll only have 3% of your business. So why wait? Make the switch to SWG Energy (solar installer) and take control of your energy costs today.

Net Metering (NEM 3.0)

The CPUC recently made a decision that will affect Californians who care about clean energy and reducing their carbon footprint. On December 15th, 2022, THE CPUC voted to approve NEM 3.0 which, unfortunately, reduces the compensation rates for new customers using solar panels by a whopping 75%.

You had until April 14th, 2023, to submit your interconnection application and lock in the NEM 2.0 rates for the next 20 years. Any customer who has already made the switch to solar power will be grandfathered into your original net metering policy.

And here’s a tip for those who are still on the fence – if you want to take advantage of solar savings even under NEM 3.0, consider adding a battery storage system to your installation. So, don’t wait, California, act now and secure your savings.

Full service solar installation

We cover everything you need to get closer to energy independence.

Building permits

All systems have to be permitted which we take care of for you

Residential solar energy systems are installed within 2 to 4 days depending on the system size and complexity of the installation.


Commercial installations of course are larger and more complex so they take longer.

Roof integrity

In business for 16 years we have never had a roof leak as a result of our work.

Only the best

We use only the best longest warrantied flashing systems and sealants. If we do it correctly the first time, we never have to come back to fix a leak. And that’s the way we like it!


Except for washing panels that get very dusty and that also is solved by a heavy rain, there is no maintenance other than washing it with a hose.

Every solar or battery system we install provides Smart Phone and Computer Monitoring. One look at your phone and you can see how much energy your solar energy system produced and saved in the battery system.

Intuitive monitoring

If something is not working properly the monitoring system sends us an alert, so we can correct the issue, which more often than not is an issue with your internet modem/router.

The benefits of solar energy in Southern California

You don’t have to look far to notice the benefits of going solar firsthand. From a financial standpoint, it can be a real game-changer. By harnessing the power of the sun, you’re not only cutting down on those monthly electricity bills but also investing in a brighter future. And the best part is, there are plenty of government incentives to help offset the cost of installation.

Going solar is not only good for your wallet, but it’s also good for the environment. Solar energy is a clean, renewable source of power that doesn’t produce any harmful emissions or pollutants. It’s our duty to do our part in reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and protecting our planet for future generations.

As solar energy grows in popularity, more and more people are asking themselves if installing solar panels is worth it. With the surge of interest and government incentives, the answer is clear: yes!
Solar energy is always available, as long as the sun is shining and is a never-ending resource. By going solar, you reduce your reliance on finite fossil fuels and their negative impact on the environment.

But it’s not just good for the planet, it’s also good for your wallet. By powering your home with solar, you’re taking control of your energy bills. No longer do you have to pay the utility for each kilowatt-hour you use. Instead, you own the source of production, and your cost is fixed. And with the option to add a solar battery storage system, you can even become energy independent and have a built-in emergency power backup.

The investment in a solar system may seem daunting at first, but the long-term savings are worth it. On average, the break-even point is just a few short years, and the benefits will last for decades. Plus, solar systems require minimal maintenance.

As an added bonus: going solar can even increase the value of your home. Studies have shown that every dollar saved on your electricity bill can increase your home’s value by $20. And homes with solar power often sell for 4% more than similar homes without.

Finally, let’s talk about tax incentives. Under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, there’s a 30% Tax Credit available through 2032. That’s substantial savings, and if you owe less in taxes than the credit, the balance can carry forward to future years until it’s exhausted. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s make the switch to solar today.

The guys at SWG Energy are top notch. We did our homework and interviewed several solar companies before selecting them. I highly recommend these guys if you want to work with a company who will be transparent, and see the job through.

SWG Energy did the install quickly, cleanly and efficiently. They were very professional, easy to work with, and did everything they said they were going to do. They not only took the time to properly size the system for our new home, but they also set us up so we could easily add more panels or battery storage in the future.
