Why Commercial Solar in LA?
California is one of the United States’ sunniest states, and southern California, in particular, is positioned to best harness the unparalleled power of the sun for unlimited solar energy production. Recently, California achieved the goal of being briefly powered by 100% renewable energy for the first time.
The majority of the world’s power (electricity supply) is currently generated by fossil fuels, including coal, natural gas, and oil. These are all finite resources; when fossil fuels run out due to human use, our planet doesn’t create any more. Fossil fuels also represent a great ongoing risk to the environment which cannot be denied.
As the cost of electricity in California for businesses increases, many agricultural, commercial and industrial businesses are fighting these rising rates sustainably with commercial solar and energy storage.
For a majority of utility customers in California, businesses included, the average commercial retail price of electricity has increased on average by about 3.5% per year from 2001 to 2020. However, after global events in 2020 such as the coronavirus pandemic, rates through 2023 have risen much higher than previous averages. Some customers are paying annual increases as high as 23%.
This was revealed to us in a case study conducted by our team looking at customer utility data through the past few years.

Rising Electricity Costs in Los Angeles
With these resources, escalating concerns including dependence on imports from a small number of other countries, rising energy prices, and legitimately serious concerns about climate change, all illustrate the need to invest in renewable energy sources for the future – solar is more important now than ever before.
Businesses in Los Angeles typically pay for electricity through either the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power or through investor-owned utility Southern California Edison (SCE). Forced to pay these sky-high rising electricity rates, Revel conducted a case study for a potential customer to learn their electricity rates from SCE had risen by 37% from 2018 to 2022.
There are far better alternatives available today, including power generation by renewable means, such as geothermal, wind power, hydroelectric, biomass, and solar. These resources are unlimited in their availability and as such, they are the way of the future – they have to be.
The Power of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for Los Angeles Businesses
An increasing number of businesses are turning to Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) as a cost-effective way to install commercial solar. PPAs offer a way to utilize existing budgeted operating expenses to gradually finance a more sustainable electricity source.
By entering into a PPA, businesses can secure solar energy at a fixed, predictable rate, often lower than the utility’s rate. This approach mitigates the impact of rising electricity rates and also aligns with the growing prevalence of environmental sustainability goals.
A solar PPA protects businesses from a certain future of rising electricity costs by locking in a predetermined escalation rate, using solar generation to offset electricity bills to provide financial and operational flexibility.
