There’s a reason a day of the week is named after the sun, why it was worshipped by ancient civilizations and why National Solar Appreciation Day takes place the second Friday of March. It makes life possible. The sun is essential to the air we breathe, our food supply and plays an increasingly important part in supplying the electricity needed to power our economy.
As we work to address extreme weather and climate change, Southern California Edison estimates that by 2045 about 50% of single-family homes will have rooftop solar. Not only will it supply solar power to those customers’ homes, it will also help power the grid.
For SCE customers thinking about installing solar panels, there’s a tool that can make the process easier and save them money. SCE’s Marketplace features a solar service to help customers make more informed decisions when it comes to installing and financing a solar rooftop system. The service also lets customers shop for an energy storage system at the same time or later. The easy-to-use service is free for customers.
To find out if going solar makes sense single-family homeowners simply need to enter their address and average monthly bill. If they decide a solar rooftop is right for them, they can get cost comparisons from a network of vetted solar companies and financing options, if needed.
When SCE customers use the service to install solar panels, they will receive a $500 SCE Marketplace discount. Having multiple companies compete for their solar business typically results in the best pricing option. The service also shields customers from high-pressure sales tactics, a common customer complaint.

Since the solar section of the marketplace launched in January 2020, more than 26,000 customers have used the site to learn about solar rooftop and energy storage options for their home and review project bids.
