More Questions about SOLAR?

Yes. Commercial solar systems are ‘on-the-grid’ where the grid acts as your energy battery.

The system will be interconnected with the grid. The solar energy produced from your system will feed your facility first and push any excess energy back to the grid for credit from the energy provider (this is called net metering). In times when your system is not producing, your facility will draw electricity from the grid using your available net metering credits.

When the sunlight hits the photovoltaic (PV) cells that make up the solar panels, the cells produce DC current which is transmitted to inverters. Inverters then convert the DC into AC current which your property usually uses.

The AC power is then used by your property, and the excess power produced by your systems is pushed back into the utility grid producing ‘credit’ on your account. At times when your system is not producing enough for your property, you will be using the available credit – this process is called net metering.

You typically get a dollar to dollar for your solar energy, i.e. if your utility cost from the utility is 18 c/kWh, then your credit will be the same (inclusive of energy cost, energy transmission, taxes, etc.).

Solar energy costs less than the cost of utility electricity in MA, NH, RI, and CT. You have many options to get solar:

  1. You can either buy the solar energy system upfront using cash or loans. In this case, your energy cost will be less than 1/3rd of what you pay towards your utility.
  2. Or: we can install your system for no upfront cost to you. You would then pay for the energy much less than what you pay towards your energy bill for 10 (or 20) years.
