How Does Solar Work?

The solar system is either placed on your roof or mounted on the ground, where it converts sunlight to electricity. As it produces electricity, your meter keeps track of how much you produce and how much you use. In daytime, your system will be producing electricity that is fed into the utility grid. When you produce more electricity than you are using, the meter will turn backwards, giving you credit for that electricity. This will supply or offset the power that you use. At night, when your system is not producing electricity, you will still have the power you need as it comes from the grid. Every month you will receive a reconciliation bill, showing how much you produced and how much you used. Your solar system is certain to significantly lower your electric bills or eliminate them, depending on the size of the system.

Federal Tax Credits For Solar:

Take advantage of the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which allows you to receive 30% of the total cost of your solar system as a tax credit. This tax credit is not capped and can roll over to the next year until it is completely used. This is an unprecedented move by the government, determined to improve America’s independence from foreign oil. California Tax Rebates:

In 2006, the State of California passed a bill called California Solar Initiative, setting the goal of creating 3,000 megawatts of new, solar facilities by 2017. $2.1 billion of funds were created to help home owners lower their energy costs over the next 10 years. SMUD and Roseville Electric, still have rebate funds available.
