The time for Solar Virtual Net Metering is now!

With laws like CA’s Title 24, and AB 802, real estate owners are “being asked” to provide their own sources of clean energy for their tenants. Solar energy can provide a low cost way to accomplish this but it comes with a heavy burden on multi-tenant properties. Trying to navigate the complexities of billing for shared solar while providing clear benefits to tenants has many owners scratching their heads and asking…

Will this add more work for my property manager?
How do I know how much energy my residents are using?

Whether you are being required to install solar through Title 24, AB802, or just want to offer a clean energy amenity to your tenants, Ivy's services will give any owner confidence in their solar investment payback.
