The Easiest and Most Affordable Way to Go Solar

Community Group Purchasing Programs for Solar Energy and Battery Storage

Sunlight makes contact with a solar panel to produce direct current (DC) electricity. The DC electricity is then sent to an inverter and converted into alternating current (AC) electricity. The AC electricity can be used instantly on premises or transferred onto the grid.

Solar cells are protected with a hail-resistant tempered glass surface. Testing includes a half-inch ball baring shot at a 90-degree angle at 60 mph. Solar panels are usually mounted on a tilt so hail will ricochet off the panel surface at an angle. Nevertheless, a severe storm with golf-ball size hail could cause damage to solar panels, your roof, house, cars, etc. In this case, your property insurance will cover the damage.

Lower your electricity bills and enjoy your new, predictable cost of electricity thatwon’t fluctuate like your utility rates!

Our professionally installed solar systems include the ability to monitor performance in real-time, as well as track your energy production over a period of time.

Solar systems add value to a property’s value. Solar reduces the overall operating cost to a property and unlike electricity rates, solar rates will never go up because the sunlight that falls on your property is free. Thus, a solar PV system insulates you from rising electricity rates. Once the system has paid for itself, the electricity it generates is absolutely free!

As a renewable source of power, solar energy has an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change, which is critical to protecting humans, wildlife, and ecosystems. Solar energy can also improve air quality and reduce water use from energy production.

Our Shared Mission
