Learn about the 'Solar Experience'

Scripps Ranch residents are invited to learn about energy independence at the Scripps Ranch Solar Experience on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to noon at the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library, 10301 Scripps Lake Drive.

At the Scripps Ranch Solar Experience, participants will learn directly from local nonprofits Climate Action Campaign and Center for Sustainable Energy, as well as certified energy practitioners about how solar works, battery integration with solar, financing options and what incentives are available now.

"It's more important than ever to empower families with the freedom of clean energy and clean air. That's why Climate Action Campaign has been inspiring, engaging and educating communities across San Diego with the tools to realize a 100 percent clean energy future," said Nicole Capretz, executive director of the Climate Action Campaign.

Many local homeowners have expressed interest in solar but are unsure who to trust. In 2016, 765 companies installed solar in San Diego. Many used misleading information and tactics, which lead to a disconnect between homeowners and solar companies. The Scripps Ranch Solar Experience will clear up this miscommunication and shed light on the facts.

"What I learned today is that the time to install solar is really good now," said Solar Experience attendee Gary Lynn. "There was no pressure to sign a contract or no effort to sell today."

The San Diego Solar Experience was launched in February of this year to give San Diegans the honesty and transparency needed to gain energy independence. More than 600 residents have attended across San Diego County. The events have consisted of educational solar seminars, electric vehicle showcases and solar technology fairs.
