Bella Vita Apartments is a luxurious 70-unit multi-family community in National City that was focused on becoming energy efficient; being located in San Diego there is often heavy energy use during the summers.
Based on the energy usage at the Bella Vita’s apartments, HES Solar designed 3 systems specifically created to offset each building’s annual electricity needs. The community has a total of 124 panels that can be expanded to adjust for future loads such as car chargers, etc.
The Bella Vita community has an annual production amount of 69,741 kWh. This has resulted in lowered energy costs while also contributing to clean green energy use. The community was also able to take advantage of state rebates under the California Solar Incentive program.

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.
