SCE has access to hourly meter readings including net generation of power put back on the grid.
The wait should not be long. I don't think SCE even comes out to look at the system with only 4 kW.
1 bar lost at 21,451 miles, 16 months.
2 bar lost at 35,339 miles, 25 months.
LEAF traded at 45,400 miles for a RAV4-EV
RAV4 traded in for I-Pace Dec 2018

i would check out AMECO, out of Long Beach area.
They did mine in 2008.
Very reliable and local.
had three bids and i was impressed with their longstanding commitment to solar, and their CEO's leadership in the movement going back to the 80s.

:geek:
In many cases there is financing availible such that you don't need any up front money and I would expect that you would then own the system faster than if you lease. Your savings would also be based on what the electrical rates actually do.

Can you expand on the financial differences between the SC proposal and a traditional financed/leased system?

As far as I know Solar City tends to be the priciest route to get solar. Do you mind sharing the details, i.e. purchase price and system size?

I prefer to be able to sell if needed with an asset vs another payment to explain to a buyer.
Chances are such an explanation will be a much more difficult task after the CA electric rate reform is implemented ;) I suspect the installer failed to mention it to your neighbor...
