Can Solar Power Save California from Wildfire Threats and Blackouts?

Can Solar Power Save California from Wildfire Threats and Blackouts?

PG&E, the electric company that controls most of Northern California's energy grid, shut off power to close to 1 million customers this past November. The blackouts were on purpose as PG&E was afraid that aging power lines and energy infrastructure could exacerbate the wildfire problem we have here in California. The outages made local headlines and are likely to continue as experts pretty much agree all around, wildfires in California are going to become more severe and more frequent as we move forward.

Solar for New Year

Solar for New Year

It’s a new year, so it’s time for some new changes! And what bigger difference than one that can save you tons of money every month and give you piece of mind that you’re helping save the earth, one house at a time. That would be thanks to switching to solar powering your home. Now it isn’t quite as easy as slapping a few solar panels on your roof, and you’re good to go, though that is a general idea. It takes the work of a solar professional to assess your home for the most optimal solar power set up.

Is Going Solar in the San Francisco Bay Area a Good Idea?

Not only is solar power as an alternative energy source rapidly becoming the most popular way to power a home, but San Francisco Bay homeowners are also in one of the most prime locations to take the most advantage of it. California holds the record for the most solar power usage over every other state in the nation. Because of the area’s fantastic access to sun exposure, many solar energy customers enjoy the benefits of relying solely on solar rather than the traditional power grid.

Solar Roadways: Paving The Way To Our Future

Solar Roadways: Paving The Way To Our Future

One of the most significantly UNDER-reported issues facing the our country today is our crumbling infrastructure of roadways and bridges. Countless lives have been lost from automobile accidents or simply crossing the street. Not only that, but many roads are poorly lit where the drivers can't see very far ahead of them increasing the risk of an accident. How many lives have been lost because of icy roads or wet roads with poor drainage?

    Latest Reviews

    I am extremely happy with my new solar panels and electrical panel upgrade. The team was clean, friendly, and professional. I had some questions and concerns about the process and everything was explained thoroughly and patiently. I hired an outside roofing company, a mix-up occured, and I was getting frustrated, Got Watts went above and beyond and intervened on my behalf. I can not say enough good things about this company.

    The scheduling process was easy, straightforward and very professional. The electrician did the work beautifully, consulting me when necessary, and cleaning up after himself when he was done. So happy with the result from Watts Electrical!

    I initially reached out to Watts because I wanted a 2nd quote and they had great reviews online. I ended up going with them because the professionalism and value greatly exceeded my initial quote from another provider. Sam was my rep during the whole process and was great to work with. She was not pushy but was very responsive and knowledgeable. I would absolutely work with her and Watts again!
