Frequently asked questions
You will still have an electricity bill; however, solar will significantly reduce the cost. When you first install your solar panel system, your utility company will provide you with an option to pay yearly. The billing cycle typically starts the same day your system turns on and ends a year later. At that point, you will receive a statement at the end of each solar billing cycle and this is referred to as a true-up bill.
Solar panels generate their own power and offset your monthly electricity bill. A solar panel system typically has a life span of 25-30 years which means you can cut your electricity cost for decades. In addition, there are state and federal incentives for home solar power systems.How do solar photovoltaic (PV) panels work?
The system has components that work together to convert the power of sunlight into usable energy. When the rays from the sun make contact with your roof, the panels convert solar radiation into direct current electricity.
The amount of electricity that the panels produce will be much less efficient than sunny days. Solar panels will still work even when partially blocked by clouds.
