How does solar energy work?

How solar works illustration

Sunlight is absorbed into the cells of the solar panels. The electrons between the charged silicon layers of the cells become excited and produce DC electricity.

Excess electricity flows backward through the electric meter out to the grid. A “net meter” spins both forward and backward depending on whether you’re producing excess power or taking it from the utility company. In the daytime, the meter will either spin backward or slow the count forward.

You only pay for “net usage” — the difference between the amount you take from the utility company and the amount you give back. Depending on the size of your system and usage, the electricity you produce will cover either all or part of your overall electric bill.

This is a “grid-tied” system, which means that you are connected to the grid as both a producer and a user.

Will solar work on my house?

One of the first steps when going solar is an in-depth solar evaluation of your home to determine if your home’s location and orientation are right for solar panels. We’ll analyze your most recent electric bill and do a roof analysis of your home before we ever set an appointment. This allows us to determine the best solar system for your home.

How much will it cost?

System costs vary depending on the size of your home (roof) and/or energy requirements. The total cost can also be paid in a number of ways either financed through a home equity loan or with a system lease. Whichever way you choose to pay for your system, it will typically pay for itself in five to seven years and produce money-saving green electricity for years beyond.

Will I still have an electric bill?

Yes — most home solar users will still receive a bill from your electric utility. Since your home and solar energy system will be connected to the electrical grid, the utility company will charge you a monthly connection fee — typically $14 to $17 per month. This is separate from the cost of electricity. However, the energy produced by your system will offset how much electricity you use from the utility and reduce the amount of your monthly electricity cost. In fact, during some months, your system may produce more electricity than you use and result in a credit on your electric bill. You will also accumulate credits on your electric bill for every month you produce more electricity than you use.

How do you select a solar installation company?

There are many factors to consider when selecting your solar installation company — don’t go on price alone. Most important is the reputation and experience of the company. You should do your research and find out how many installations the company has completed and the level of customer satisfaction. A quality installer that has the experience and attention to detail that is required for home solar installation should have many positive reviews and customer testimonials. You can also look at the years of experience and the overall size of the company to determine if they are a solid solar installation company.
