What hours are you home? When is most of your energy consumed?

If the answer is mainly at night and in the mornings then you need to call SDGE right away and have them switch you to a Time of Use rate schedule. It will involve placing a Time of use meter (utility does this for "free"). You will then sell your energy at the highest possible retail rate, which is during the day when solar is cranking. Then at night you pay for the lower cost energy when you use it. Then, program your volt to charge at night and you should see signifigant savings.

The only new few you will incur is the $8 meter fee from SDGE. You should see a big drop in your bill this way.

Solar + Volt + TOU metering = BIG SAVINGS.
