How Solar Works

Solar Panels

The solar panel's job is to take excess electron energy and turn it into electric power. Silver acts as the conductor to pass electricity on to an inverter.


The inverter acts as the brain of your solar system. It converts Direct Current (DC) electricity into Alternating Current (AC) power (the standard electrical current use in your home). Each solar cell generates roughly 1.0 Volt of electricity.

Be in full control and store all the energy your solar panels have produced. You'll be able to power your home at night time, through power outages, and when the utility rates are the highest. 

Electrical Panel 

The AC power is run to the electrical panel (breaker box) where it can be distributed throughout your home.

Utility Meter

This is where the utility bill savings happen. The utility meter measures your electrical supply. Usually, solar panels produce more power than your home will actually use. Your utility company will offset your next bill for any excess power your system accumulates.

Why Go Solar

Solar panels can save you money by using space on your roof to produce sustainable energy right from your home. Our solar panels have a low-profile design and no visible mounting hardware. You can expect the following benefits from going solar:


Homes with solar panels rely less on the grid by capturing energy directly from the sun. Homeowners can offset their energy usage with solar panels and reduce their energy bills. By installing a solar panel system, you can take control of your energy usage and lower your costs. 

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Electricity from the grid is generated by a mix of coal, natural gas, nuclear and some renewable energy depending on where you live. Solar gives you a choice in where your energy comes from. By switching to solar, you will be reducing your carbon emissions and environmental impact of energy use.

Protect Yourself from Rising Electricity Rates

Electricity rates continue to increase over time - since 1970 the price of electricity has increased by 3.6% per year on average. In contrast, energy from your solar system has a fixed price. With solar, you won’t have to worry about how the price of your electricity will change in the future.

Increase Your Home Value

Purchasing and installing solar is an investment that increases the value of your home. Studies have shown that homes with solar are more appealing to homebuyers and sell both faster and at a premium price compared to homes without solar.

Secure Your Home from Outages

While solar alone does not function during a power outage, pairing your solar panels with a Powerwall allows you to recharge with sunlight and keep your appliances running even when the grid goes down. A Battery is designed to integrate with solar panels and can store energy generated during the day, for use at night or during unexpected outages and grid shut-offs.
