How Solar PV Works

  • Solar panels convert the sun’s rays to direct current (DC) electricity, which then goes to an inverter where it is converted into alternating current (AC), the type of electrical current used in our homes.
  • Next, the power goes to your electric meter where the net amount of energy your system is generating is recorded, and then into your home.
  • If you need more electricity then your system is generating at any point in time, you draw that electricity from the grid, but when you are generating more electricity then you are using, the surplus energy is fed onto the power grid, spinning the meter backward.

Rebates, Incentives and Financing

Home owners have access to a variety of tax incentives and rebates to drastically reduce the cost of a system, and financing options to make paying for that system affordable.

Your Project Manager will make sure you take advantage of any rebates and incentives to lower the cost of your system and help you explore financing options to cover the remaining cost. See below to learn more, or Contact Us Today.
