Benefits of Solar



At HES Solar, we have two decades of service under our belts. We have more experience in solar installations and battery storage than any other solar company in San Diego! We believe that solar energy is a huge benefit both for the consumer and the environment. Read on to learn more about what our systems can do for you!!


When you choose HES Solar you can expect a complete financial benefit package created specifically for you by our professional solar consultants. We provide this financial benefit analysis for both residential and commercial projects. This analysis includes a tax benefit breakdown, an electricity savings outline, and a timeline for your return on investment.


Choosing to switch to reliable, clean solar energy will dramatically reduce the number of greenhouse gases our nation emits and reduce the use of nonrenewable resources like coal and oil.


A solar system installed on your home will reduce your dependence on the utility company and the nation’s dependence on foreign oil.

Property Value

The average home will increase in value by over 3-4% simply by adding a solar electric system. Additionally, your property taxes, and in most cases homeowner’s insurance, will not go up.

Save tens of thousands of dollars

Your system will begin saving you money on day one. It’s really quite simple to get started. Call our Design Consultants today!

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. 

Please use the HES Solar website as a resource to learn more, and please take our offer to speak with an HES Solar Energy Consultant at no obligation.
