More and more auto dealerships are choosing to rely on renewable energy every year. Over the years HES Solar has realized that solar is a natural fit for auto dealerships in San Diego. In fact, many dealerships have discovered that photovoltaic (PV) solar systems can help them save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
On average auto dealerships consume 18% more energy than ypical office buildings and over $2 billion dollars are spent by the auto dealership industry on energy expense every year.
Supplying air conditioning and heating for these buildings is a major cost, along with the need to light showrooms to spotlight beautiful new vehicles. And, lighting those large outdoor vehicle lots after hours also adds to those expenses. To learn if solar energy could save your business money contact our expert commercial solar experts at (619) 350-0032.
Protect the cars on your lot from the sun and bad weather, while making a visible statement about your dealership’s commitment to sustainability. Add optional electric vehicle charging and your EVs will always be ready for a test drive.

Net Energy Metering 3.0 (NEM 3.0) is the incoming law created by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The new tariffs and fees will impact both residential and commercial solar systems built in California.
As this notice is posted in November of 2022, the Proposed Decision from the CPUC outlining the proposed NEM 3.0 terms is expected soon. This comes after a year’s delay. Once the new agreement is finalized and passed into law, there will exist a designation of the deadline under which new systems will continue to qualify for NEM 2.0 rates.
The new NEM 3.0 rates will be designed to lower the value of electricity during the daytime hours, when solar is producing, and increase the value of electricity during the evening hours, when solar homes and businesses purchase electricity. In short, NEM 3.0 will create a “sell low, buy high” proposition to new solar system owners.
To Californians looking to install a solar system on their home or commercial building, the NEM 2.0 rates will be preferred. As of this post, the solar industry does not know the details of how different the NEM 3.0 rates will be from the NEM 2.0 rates.
