Yes, in many areas of CA solar panels are required in new housing divisions. Cost goes way down due to mass installation instead of 1 at a time, like mine. A friend's folks just moved into a new development near Sac. Owners love their solar because of the very low cost of energy. PGE likes them because owners generate more energy than they use. And electricity prices in CA are some of the highest in the nation. Why would you not do it; not take advantage of all the CA sun and solar technology? It is all good.
