Why Solar?

How Does Solar
Energy Help You

Your solar system has no moving parts so you can expect a long and hassle free life from your solar power system! Government solar rebates mean that making the switch to solar is simple, fast and affordable.

How does it work?

Learning the basics of solar technology is the smartest way to understand how it will help you save money.

Solar panels work by converting photons from the sun into direct current (DC), which then flows into an inverter. The inverter converts the direct current into alternating current (AC) and sends this electricity to your breaker box to power your home/business & charge your battery.

Making the switch to solar energy has never been easier!


Solar energy is created by solar panels which are designed to absorb photons (rays from the sun) to create a photovoltaic (PV) effect that converts sunlight into electricity.


The solar panels produce electricity in the form of DC power which is then carried to an electrical box called an Inverter, which converts the DC power into AC power for your home.


The bidirectional meter monitors the electricity made by your solar system and the power grid. After charging your battery, excess solar energy produced by your system will be sent to the grid and you will receive credit toward your utility bill.


At night, the stored energy from your battery is used. If more electricity is needed then power is taken from the utility grid, using your solar credits. This system is called net metering. Your solar electricity production should net your electricity consumption.


The utility company produces the energy carried through the grid to power your home or business. Your home will remain connected to the power to ensure you have access to power at all times, especially at night. This energy comes from diverse sources usually natural gas, nuclear or renewable power plants.


Any unused electricity travels through your electric meter and charges your battery. The excess power generated after battery is fully charged is sent to the power grid and you will receive a monthly credit from your local power company. A bidirectional meter keeps track of both energy imported & exported to the grid.
