When your panels overproduce, the excess electricity travels back to the grid, and you'll receive credits that offset future consumption, like the energy you use at night.


The amount of power you consume throughout the day, is offset by the amount of clean energy your system produces.


If your system generates more electricity than you’re consuming, it gets fed back to the grid and distributed elsewhere.

What are the financial benefits of solar energy?

Once you install a solar energy system on your property, you can save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you save depends on multiple factors, such as utility rates and solar policies in your area, but going solar is a smart investment regardless of where you live.

What are the environmental benefits of solar energy?

Solar power, like other renewable energy resources, have many environmental and health benefits. Going solar reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants, which can cause serious health problems.

What is net metering?

Net metering is the system that utilities use to credit solar energy system owners for the electricity produced by their solar panels. With net metering, you only pay for the electricity that you use beyond what your solar panels can generate.

Can I go off grid with solar panels?

When you install solar panels on your home, you will still be connected to the grid. This allows you to draw from the grid when your system is not producing all of the power that you need, and send power back to the grid when you produce more than you use. It is possible to go off the grid with a solar panel system that includes battery storage, but it will cost significantly more and is unnecessary for the majority of homeowners.

Do solar panels produce power when the sun isn’t shining?

The amount of power your solar energy system can generate is dependent on sunlight. As a result, your solar panels will produce slightly less energy when the weather is cloudy, and no energy at night. However, your system should generate enough electricity during the day that it offsets what isn't being produced at night.

What solar energy rebates and incentives are available?

Solar rebates and incentives vary depending on where you live. The most significant is the 30 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC), which allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of your solar energy system from your taxes. Some utilities also offer cash rebates or other incentives.

Can I afford to go solar?

If you can afford to pay your electricity bill you can afford to go solar. $0-down solar financing options, including both solar loans and solar leases, make it easy for homeowners to start saving on their electricity bills by going solar.

How does solar impact my property values?

Research indicates that homes with solar power sell for more than homes without it. However, your property value will only increase if you own, rather than lease, your solar system. In most parts of the country, switching to solar will actually increase your property value more than a kitchen renovation.

Will I still receive an electric bill if I have solar panels?

Unless your solar system includes a battery backup and you're fully off the grid, you will still receive a bill from your utility company. However, you can dramatically reduce your bill, or even cut the amount you owe to little or nothing, with a solar energy system that matches your current electricity usage.

Do solar panels work in a blackout?

If your solar panel system is connected to the grid, it will shut off in the event of a blackout. This is to prevent emergency responders and electricity utility repair-people from being injured by your panels sending power back to the grid. However, there are certain inverters you can buy that provide backup power in a blackout when paired with a battery.
