After your solar panels are professionally installed by our technicians, they gather the sun’s energy to create direct current (DC) electricity. Next, your inverter converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, and sends it to your standard electrical panel. The electricity your manufacturing plant or office uses can be used directly for your consumption, reducing your electrical needs from the utility.
Your solar array works in tandem with the local grid. When your energy consumption exceeds your solar generation, your company receives electricity from your utility. When you have a surplus of renewable energy, the excess is sent to the grid and credited to your account through net metering. The value of the net metered energy can reduce your electricity bill, further lowering the cost of solar to your company.

Solar electricity used by your business is electricity you do
not purchase from the utility grid.
Your solar system works in coordination with the utility
grid. Any demand that is not met by your solar array
is supplied by the grid. Any excess solar electricity that
is not used at your facility will be sent to the grid.
