Up Up and Away
Year after year, decade after decade, energy prices have always risen. However, over the past decade, with the rapid increase of worldwide petroleum prices, and the additional pressures imposed by new environmental regulations, electricity prices have never risen as fast and as far. And that trend is not expected to change at any time in the near future.
In the past it was unheard of to see electricity prices increase more than a few percentage points per year. However, now it is not unusual to see electricity prices jump double digits in a single year, as happened in September of 2013 when SDG&E raised its rates as much as 30%.
Because utility companies are essentially being forced to spend billions of dollars building new clean power plants to meet the requirement of the new environment regulations, and because those costs are being passed on to rate payers in the form of higher electricity rates, hundreds of thousands of homeowners and business owners are making the move to generate their own clean power at a fraction of the cost by installing solar systems on their properties. Property owners can take advantage of available government incentives and generate their own clean power at a fraction of the cost of their local utility, and can typically break even on their solar systems in as little as 5 to 7 years. And with a service life of 30 to 40 years, that means decades of free electricity to look forward to, and a return on investment not easily found elsewhere.
