Photovoltaic (solar) panels capture the sun’s rays and generate direct current (DC) power which is fed to the inverter to be converted to alternating current (AC). AC power is the type of power your home can utilize. This AC power is then fed to the main meter panel and begins registering the energy produced with the utility company per your net metering agreement to credit your account.
Net metering is a simple concept; power created from your solar system is connected to the electric grid and credited in real time. Any excess power created by the solar system that you are not using, at that moment, is fed back into the power grid. As this excess power is “back-fed”, your meter operates in reverse.
Literally, your meter “spins” backward. The power grid is managed by your local utility company and includes everyone connected to it. As your home’s solar production offsets your energy consumption, you generate credits with the utility and your bill is reduced as your electric costs are eliminated.
All of our system designs include a unique monitoring system to quickly and easily determine daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly solar energy production through web access and sometimes mobile applications. This detailed monitoring provides evidence that your solar investment is generating the financial benefit you expect.
Every solar power project starts with a quick conversation to see if solar is right for you. We’ll discuss your energy use and take a look at your roof orientation and possible shading. We'll prepare a customized quote if everything looks good and it will include all of your options and projects your energy savings as well.
Once we have the measurements, our expert engineers will design a solar power system based on your home’s dimensions and your energy needs.
Most solar panel system installations take only a single day. We’ll find a day that works best for you. We also take care of all of the permits and inspections. All you have to do is watch it all come together.
Here’s the best part. Once the utility company gives approval, you get to flip the switch to start generating your own clean, more affordable energy.
