San Diego County is the hottest solar power market in the nation right now, with about 1,000 homes lighting up new systems each month.
Based on my hard-nosed analysis, solar is a fair-to-good investment for most homeowners who pay $175 or more each month on just the electricity portion of their bill from San Diego Gas & Electric Co.

Definition of “good” is a return on my solar investment within shouting distance of 10 percent, given that cash pays a paltry 0.1 percent in a money market.
