I certainly wouldn't recommend solar

I had solar installed back in February. CFE credits only about 5% of my production and somehow despite my best efforts to conserve, I'm consuming almost 3 times the energy I was before the installation. I am literally paying more for electricity now than I ever did in San Diego. Last bill was almost $8500! Of course, CFE is completely non-responsive.

Obviously, there is something else wrong than just the fact that you installed solar panels. Something is not right. Have you asked your solar installer to check the system? It sounds as if adding battery backup and maybe an emergency generator and then detaching from the CFE grid might be a viable option if CFE won't respond to your legitimate concerns.

P.S. Electricity bills far higher than those is San Diego? Now there is a scary thought potentially suitable for the theme of a horror movie.

Yeah, I have a 22kw generator that is more than capable of supplying all my needs, but of course I have to keep feeding it gas. Plus, the thing is LOUD.
Clearly something is wrong, but nobody can seem to figure out what the problem is. I'm pretty sure the meter is defective, and I have CFE review/repair requests that have been pending for weeks. Never thought I would deal with an entity worse than San Diego Greed & Extortion, but here I am!

At least CFE hasn't discovered Daily Peak Usage -- yet.
