      Fact check, So.California has the Highest taxes in the country, in addition it is a desert and water is expensive! And is a liberal state which means “Big Government” fee after fee and permits, Holly Smokes the permits and time to get permits.

      However Northern and Central California are awesome and we do not have the highest taxes in the nation. We can grow year round and the state gives huge support via tax breaks for off grid life styles like solar.
