How does a Solar System generate energy for your business or nonprofit?

Our planet receives more free, clean energy from the sun each day than we use all year. The advantages of this solar potential are incredible. But how do we help our customers harness this energy to reduce their bills and elevate their brands? Here’s how solar energy systems work:
1
Commercial solar panel systems are made from semiconductors, similar to the ones in your computers or smartphones. Sunlight stimulates electrons inside these semiconductors, which creates Direct Current (DC) electricity, the same type of electricity you get from a battery.
2
The DC Electricity travels to the “brain” of the solar system, called an inverter, which transforms it into Alternating Current (AC) Electricity, the type of electricity you get from electrical outlets.
3
The converted AC electricity travels through your building’s existing circuit breaker to power your devices – just like the electricity from your utility company.

When your solar energy system generates more energy than your building needs, excess solar energy is sent back into the utility’s power lines, and (in most regions) your utility pays you for this energy. When your system generates less energy than your building requires, you will still get the energy you need from your local utility.

Do I still pay the utility?
Yes, but solar seriously reduces your bill

The Good News
The Really Good News

One of the benefits of solar is that your total electricity costs are going to go down! Solar will not always provide 100% of your electricity needs, and you will still have a utility bill, but it will be significantly reduced.

Rest assured that we will not approve any projects where the cost of the solar system exceeds the cost of electricity saved from your local utility. This ensures your total energy spend will go down significantly. To explore your site-specific opportunities to save, start our .
