Discover the savings and independence of owning your own renewable energy source. With the ability to produce your own electricity you gain a freedom over utility rate hikes and with the addition of energy storage you ensure reliable power to your home independent of grid shutdowns or outages. If you’re ready to stop leasing your electricity and start owning your power, SunPower by HES Solar is your partner to show you everything you need, teach you everything you need to know, expertly design your perfect home solar system, and install your SunPower panels and Equinox integrated system for worry-free decades of self-generated energy.
We’ve been around since 2001 and we’ve installed nearly 20 million watts of electricity in Southern California. We understand solar from the largest commercial systems down to the perfect system for the homeowner with modest energy needs. For the right solar system to fit your energy needs, whether that’s a rooftop solar system or a ground mount array, look no further than SunPower by HES Solar.
Turn the money you’re spending on your electricity bill into an investment in a power-generating solar system that will deliver electricity for decades to come. In most cases, the monthly payment for a home solar system is less than your previous utility bill payment, so monthly costs go down right from activation. Energy costs become stable and predictable, and in a few years, the system will be through its payback period and will from that point on generating free, renewable electricity for decades.
We can show you financing plans for your solar or solar plus storage system that works similarly to financing a car. You’ll own the system, pay it off with monthly costs that fit your plans, and after the loan is paid you own a reliable source of free, clean, renewable energy.
Yes, you will still have an energy bill when you add solar to your home. However, it won’t be anything like your current energy bill. Because you are still connected to the public utility grid, you will still utilize public energy when your solar panels can’t provide you with the energy you need (such as when the sun goes down each evening). The energy you use will be charged to you at retail rates.
However, there are two huge caveats to keep in mind. First, you won’t be using nearly as much retail power as you would without solar. During the day, your solar energy system should provide you more than enough power that you need zero public grid energy. Second, during these peak hours, your panels may produce more energy than you need, and you can send this energy back to the public grid for a credit, a practice known as “net metering.” This energy you send back to the grid also appears on your bill, reducing the amount of money you owe for the energy you do use.
Photovoltaic modules (PV): Photovoltaic modules are typically monocrystalline or polycrystalline, and use light to convert energy into direct current (DC) electricity.
Inverters: Inverters come in different sizes and models, and convert the direct current (DC) energy produced by the solar modules into alternating current (AC) that is used by household components.
All solar modules used by HES Solar come with a 25-year power, production, and product warranty. Alongside HES Solar’s 10-year installation warranty. In addition, inverters typically come with a 10- or 12-year warranty. Read more about our warranties here.
The size of your system depends on many factors that will be determined during your free site evaluation by one of HES Solar’s highly trained solar consultants.
We will determine size based on:
Check out our savings calculator to find out what size system you will need and how much it can save you.
Your solar power system has virtually one moving part and that is found in the inverter, so the maintenance is very low. We recommend that you clean the modules once every three months to ensure maximum performance, but usually a light rain should suffice. No other routine maintenance is required. If you suspect an issue, feel free to let us know.
Yes! California Civil Code 2473, otherwise known as the Solar Rights Act, restricts HOAs and local governments from interfering with solar installations except for health and safety issues.

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.
