How Solar Works
Your solar system has no moving parts so you can expect a long and hassle-free life from your solar power system! Learning the basics of solar technology is the smartest way to understand how it works and move forward with your choice to install a solar panel system appropriate for you.
When sunlight strikes your solar panel array, a direct current (DC) is generated through a reaction called the photovoltaic effect. The DC current is routed from the array down to your inverter, which is the brain of your photovoltaic system. The inverter takes the DC current from the solar array and transforms it into alternating current (AC) which is what is used in your home. The energy is then routed from your inverter to your main electrical panel, where it can supply all of the electrical loads inside your home. If your home is using more energy than your solar power system is producing, you will pull energy from the utility grid, meaning you will always have energy. If your system produces more energy than you use, the excess energy goes out to the public grid, and you are compensated for it through a process called net metering.

Solar Energy Excellence
Solar modules are the most expensive component of a solar power system. Also known as the solar power panels, they are the elements that sit on your roof and collect photons from the sun’s rays and turn them into direct current electricity. The modules we provide carry a 25-year warranty.
The inverter is the component that converts the direct current electricity from your modules to alternating current electricity to be used in your home. Your inverter will be placed in your garage or on the outside of your home for easy access. The inverters we install have a 20-year warranty.
Solar racking interfaces with your roof to ensure structural stability of the system and watertight roof connections. The systems we provide use Anodized aluminum and stainless-steel components with life expectancies more than 25 years and carry a 10-year manufacturer warranty.
A monitoring platform shows what your system is producing in real time via a web connection allowing you to track system performance.
We provide system monitoring for 25 years.
The Benefits of Going Solar
26% tax credit is available to any homeowner that decides to have solar panels installed on their home before the end of 2022
The average residential solar system offsets about 100,000 lbs. of carbon dioxide in 20 years – the equivalent of driving a car for 100,000 miles
According to a recent report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average monthly energy bill in Georgia is $126.38, which is $14.71 above the national average
The SEIA ranks Georgia the 5th in the nation for solar power
Georgia has more than the average days of sunshine in the nation. With an average of 217 days
In a report from the Appraisal Journal, your home's value will increase by $20 for every $1 saved annually on your electric bills.
According to the EIA, the average yearly electricity consumption for homeowners is 10,649 kilowatt hours (kWh), or an average of about 877 kWh per month
In the U.S., the average electricity rate is 13.19 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) (as of February 2021)
