How Solar Works?

From Sun to Savings in Four Easy Steps

 

1.    Our Solar Systems Capture the Sun

From dawn to dusk, photovoltaic roofing absorbs sunlight and converts it into direct current (DC) electricity.

 

2.    Our Inverter Makes the Electricity Usable

Your home uses alternating current (AC), and our inverter converts the DC collected on your roof into AC you can use.

 

3.    You Use Only the Electricity You Need

The solar system will generate a portion or, in some cases, all or more electricity than your home uses during the day. Your home will only pull electricity through your electric meter when you need more than your roof collects.

 

4.    Get Paid for the Extra*

If you don’t use all the electricity your roof makes, the excess power flows back through your meter into the power grid. And your electric bill goes down even further as a result.

 

* Programs vary by state
