How it works.

it's a lot simpler than you think.

Solar energy is not only sustainable, it is renewable. We will never run out of it. It is about as natural a source of power as it is possible to generate electricity. Solar panel systems have no moving parts, a long system life and require little maintenance.

Photovoltaic (PV) cells make up a solar panel. The solar panels generate energy through absorbing direct sunlight through the day. This direct current energy (DC) flows in one direction to an inverter.

An inverter is an electronic device that converts direct current power into alternating current (AC) power.

Alternating current is the type of power that operates lights, appliances, electronic devices, and anything else that normally operates on the power that comes from the utility grid. The AC power, once converted at the inverter, will travel to the electric panel to be consumed in the home or building.

Excess solar energy that's not consumed will export to the utility power grid. During the night or non-sun hours, the site is supplied by the utility grid. This is how how some solar customers see the meter going backwards. They are using less energy than their solar system is producing.


Why go solar?

It’s one of the most responsible choices you can make.

It’s not only great for you, it’s great for your community and for future generations. We’ll take care of your entire solar project from start to finish in a few simple steps.


Save money on your electricity costs
Benefit from reduced electric bills as soon as your solar system is turned on.  Free yourself of the stress of fluctuating power bills through the seasons.  Go solar at one fixed monthly payment and have the peace of mind of knowing that you are producing your own power.  Use energy guilt free! Never worry (or argue) about turning up the air conditioning or the heat again!

Increase Your Home’s Value
Solar homes are in demand. New homes are being built with with solar systems. An energy efficient home often sells faster and often at a higher premium. Buyers enjoy the benefits of an already installed solar system – and all of our warranties, service and support will convey.

Reduce air, water and land pollution
Solar panels reduce pollution caused by traditional power generation. With solar panels you are doing your part to ensure a cleaner, better world for future generations.
