Milpitas, California Home Solar Panel Installation

In-Laws moving in means huge electricity bills, perfect time to go solar!

Milpitas is a city in Santa Clara County, California. It is located with San Jose to its south and Fremont to its north, at the eastern end of State Route 237 and generally between Interstates 680 and 880 which run roughly north/south through the city. Milpitas features some amazing places to visit.  Here are some of our favorites:

  • Ed R. Levin County Park
    • Great place to walk your dog. Has a great seperate off the leash park for them as well. Has a little pond to either feed the birds or as others do fish. Has multiple areas to be especially if you hate crowds of people. Oh and cant miss the people parachuting down from the top of the high mountains on a windy day. Great place to have picnic and spend time with Family/friends, went there in Spring and views were awesome. There are 2 different picnic areas. Lots of things to do like fishing, BBQ, hiking, biking, paragliding at hill top
  • Sandy Wool Lake
    • This is very nice local park. It has lake and hills. It is great place for fishing, hiking, jogging family hangout, picnic. Just love it. The trail is pretty good. It is not very hard for beginners. Especially in springs, hiking amount green field and hills feels so good. In April this year (2019) now, the wild flowers start blooming. It is good time to go out spend time outdoors.
  • Mission Peak
    • Mission peak has been a local and regional favorite destination for even the most moderately active people In the Fremont and surrounding areas. Almost like a pilgrimage for the regulars. Despite battles between nearby residents and callous visitors, it’s still the favorite for hikers and bikers (who dare to peddle hard) over weekends and holidays. A relaxed 3 hour round trip hike to the peak and back or less time for the challenger athletes who consider running vs walking both ways is typical time required to enjoy this trail end to end. With two entry points off Stanford Ave and Ohlone college, there are variations to onward and return routes that can be fun. Highly recommend during good weather days as it can be cloudy and chilly on cold and rainy days. Water bottle and energy snacks are highly recommended. No bathrooms on the trail except for the two at the starting point and the start of the final ascent. The final 1/2 mile of this 3 mile (one way) trail is the most challenging and the most interesting part. Trail running shoes with good grip and hold recommended for safety and full enjoyment. The view from the top is breathtaking and the perfect reward for the invested calories in climbing. A pic or selfie on top of the metal post at the peak is a must for first timers especially :-).
  • Mission Peak Regional Preserve
    • Wow, absolutely fantastic walk from the car park up to mission Peak back via the round path. Mind though, paths are very muddy after rain. Views across the bay are great as are the views of the rounded hill. Great half day walk. + great view from the top of the Bay and the hills. 2000 ft elevation gain is a strenuous work out. Last section is very steep.
      – no water on the trail
      – no shade. Bad idea on a warm day
  • Hidden Lake Park
    • A very appropriate name for this neighborhood lake, tucked in between two developments. The lake is close to 1/3 of a mile around, and is low-trafficked. There’s two barbeque pits as well as a fishing pier. And if your like wildlife, there’s plenty of pigeons, ducks (many kinds), birds and even turtles! Nice park for walking, properly maintained. There are so many ducks and tortoise, you can just sit and relax, there are many benches.
