Harness the Energy of the Sun

Every day, light hits your roof’s solar panels with photons (particles of light).

Generate your own Electricity

The PV panel converts those photons into electrons and Direct Current (DC) electricity is generated.

You're on the Grid

The inverter converts the DC power is converted into Alternating Current (AC) and is synced with the utility grid so that you can use it in your home.

Get Energy Credits

The inverter is tied into your main breaker panel and the power you generate gets recorded by a bi-directional or “net” meter. Energy generated will offset what you would have normally used from the utility and any excess energy will be counted as credit towards the next month.

Free Power

At night, when your system is shut down, your home uses the credits it made throughout the day, rather than purchasing from the utility.
