Harness The Sun To Power Your Bay Area Home’s Electricity, Heat And Hot Water With PACE Financing.

Solar systems have come a really long way in saving or even making you money on utility bills. Photovoltaic (PV) systems are made up of at least one inverter and multiple solar panels. Panels can be fixed or on a track to move with the sun to make the best use of the sun’s energy. Thermal systems produce hot water for personal use, radiant heating systems and even heating swimming pools. Now, PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) financing like CaliforniaFIRST and HERO, you can financing options to purchase and install panels and inverters and get started saving money.

Reduce Before Your Produce

At Custom Exteriors, we believe the best way to achieve real energy efficiency in your California home is to reduce before you produce. By making smart home upgrades like high-efficiency door and window replacements, your home will run more cost-effectively, be more comfortable, and retain heated and cooled air better. We suggest starting with the "reduce" phase before moving to "produce," meaning once your doors and windows are operating at peak performance, then it's time to consider a renewable energy upgrade.
