Solar Electric

How Solar Works

  • The sun´s light produces energy that is collected by Solar Shingles in the form of DC (direct current) electricity.
  • The collected DC electricity is channeled to the inverter which converts it into AC (alternating current) electricity for household use.
  • Excess electricity not used by the house is fed into the utility grid for energy credits.  You use those credits during the night or dark winter days
  • Your system’s performance can be conveniently monitored on the internet or even on your smart phone.

Your Solar System Size Depends on your Solar Goal

  • You can create a system size that is optimal for your needs.
  • You can choose to produce enough solar power to keep your energy use through the utility below the highest priced rate tiers and only pay for the usage in the Base Rate Tier.
  • You can choose to produce enough solar power to annually net out to zero the electricity supplied by the utility grid.  This is called “Net Zero”.
