How-Solar-WorksFind Your Place in the Sun

Solar panels perform at peak efficiency when certain factors work in your favor. While all solar collectors perform at their best on clear, sunny days when sun exposure is at its peak, our panels are designed to work longer and harder, making the most out of any sunlight conditions, from dawn to dusk.

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
