The average American household spends about $2,000 a year on electricity — and that's before rising energy costs start factoring into the equation. Solar panels allow you to generate electricity directly on your own property, cutting out the middleman utility provider. Depending on your location, they may even be able to provide all of your power needs.

Installing a solar panel system will allow your home to generate its own electricity. A solar battery and/or a generator can provide electricity for your home in case of emergency situations.

The price of solar panels has decreased over 50% since 2010, so it is much easier for people realize the benefits of solar energy. Second, the overall efficiency of solar panels has increased due to new technological advancements. With the rising electricity rates, solar has become the new cheapest source of electricity for homeowners across the United States.

When people generate their own energy, they don’t rely on centralized utility companies for electricity. This means less strain on the grid and lower prices for everyone.
So when you shop for solar power, you do more than make your own electricity—you help keep electricity costs low for everyone.

Net Metering with Solar

how solar works with net meteringNegative Electricity Bill Green Mountain Energy

What is Net Metering?

It's common that solar panels produce more electricity than a property consumes during the day. This extra power is sent to the grid and credited on the property owner's electricity bill.
When a solar home or business owner needs to use electricity, at night or times when the solar production is low, it draws into this built up credit. Solar home and business owners are charged on the "net" of what is used during the billing cycle.
Some utility providers carry over solar energy credits to the next billing cycle. Some providers cut a check for the extra credits. It's important to read your utility company's Distributed Generation Manual for specific net metering policies for your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What happens at night?

    If power is needed at night time you would just draw from the energy credit you've accumulated with the utility grid since we're still hooked in with them. If you have not generated an energy credit with them yet you would be charged for your electricity like normal. There's no need to ever think your home will run out of power. This all falls under the net metering program that's available with your utility provider. There are also battery solutions that can be installed in case you still need electricity in the very rare instance that the grid went out.
  • How much will I save?

    Savings depend largely on the cost of your electricity, the available roof space and angles, and the shading situation of the home or business that's being installed. If you aren't moving soon it is always a good idea to request a free consultation.
  • Will I still get a bill from the utility?

    Unless your solar energy system includes battery storage and you are fully off the grid, you will still receive a bill from your utility. However, you can dramatically reduce your bill and even cut the amount you owe to $0 with a solar panel system that matches your energy use.
  • Will I need to let my homeowner's insurance know about solar?

    Most insurance companies work nationwide and have been dealing with solar clients for decades. You'll need to call your insurance provider and let them know you've added solar to your house at installation.
  • When it rains are the solar panels on my roof useless?

    During the daytime there's enough light for the solar technology to generate electricity, even when it rains. Homeowners can draw into their solar electricity credit from previous energy generated by the solar system. With the net metering program this all happens automatically without the need for a home battery.
  • How long will my solar power system last?

    Generally, solar panels are durable and capable of withstanding snow, wind, and hail. The various components of your solar power system will need to be replaced at different times but, your system should continue to generate electricity for 25 to 35 years.
