We can change sunlight directly to electricity using solar cells. Each panel converts sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. These electrons flow out of the solar panel and into an inverter.
The inverter converts the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity.
The meter measures your energy use. Any solar energy that you do not use will go back into the electrical grid through the meter, accumulating credits that offset your electricity use at night.
With the cost of electricity rising at an alarming rate, it’s even more important to own your energy production. By investing in solar panels, you can avoid exorbitant increases in your energy bill for years to come.
Solar technology uses the second most abundant element on earth to harness the limitless energy of the sun. By utilizing solar energy, you’re significantly reducing your CO2 emissions and thereby contributing to a healthier environment.
Solar systems are an extremely reliable source of power, especially when using California Solar. By using SunPower’s technology, your system comes with a 25-year warranty that includes all parts, labor and shipping costs, so there’s nothing to worry about during the lifetime of your system.
Because solar power has so many benefits, the government encourages participation by offering many tax credits, rebates and other incentives.
Research has shown that for each kilowatt of energy installed, the value of your home increases upwards of $5,000. The average home adds nearly $30,000 of value when going solar.
