Why Choose Solar?

Solar energy is the key to a clean energy future and offers many benefits to single-family homeowners both financially and environmentally.

Each day the sun gives off much more energy than is required to power all things on the earth. By investing in solar energy systems, that power can be harnessed and used to offset expensive costs for traditional electricity from local utility providers. Solar energy is renewable and CO2-free which means it has a low environmental impact compared to traditional power sources which involve burning fuels. Solar energy also has very low operating and maintenance costs after the system is installed making it a smart investment. 

How Does Solar Energy Work?

Solar Energy follows a simple process to turn sunlight into usable electricity and then ultimately into money in your pocket.

Solar Panels Harness the Energy of the Sun

Using photovoltaic cells, solar panels capture the light of the sun and convert this light into direct current (DC) electricity. 

Energy Collected is Converted into Usable Electricity

After sunlight is collected, an in-home inverter converts the direct current electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, the type that is used in your home to power lights, appliances and more. 

Converted Electricity is Used and Stored

After power is converted to usable electricity, it is used to power your home. If a power storage system is installed, extra electricity is stored in batteries to power your home during dark hours.

Electricity is Metered and Excess is Sent Back to the Grid

Daily electricity usage is metered by the solar energy system and any excess power that is produced by your system is sent back to the power grid and sold back to your local utility provider for a profit.
