Lowering your electricity bill, and having a smaller carbon footprint are the two big reasons people add solar energy to their homes, but did you know it can also increase the value of your home?

According to a nationwide study by the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, resale values increase an average of $4 for each additional solar watt installed.

Questions About Solar

What is Solar Electricity?

Photovoltaic (PV): photo = light, voltaic = produces voltage
Photovoltaic (PV) systems, also referred to as solar electric systems, convert sunlight directly into usable electricity in your home or business using semiconductor technology. Sunlight strikes the PV cells and cause the electrons to flow, creating an electrical current (photovoltaic effect).

What is a kilowatt-hour?

The basic unit of energy. Energy = Power x Time.
Example: If ten 100-watt light bulbs are left on for one hour, the energy consumed is 1 kWh (100 w x 10 = 1 kWh).

How Does PV Work?

Photovoltaic (PV) systems convert light directly into electricity using semiconductor technology.

How a solar PV system works

1. Individual photovoltaic (PV) cells are connected to panels. Solar panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
2. An inverter converts direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) for electricity in the home.
3. The utility meter records the net amount of energy generated through the PV system. When you’re creating more electricity than you’re using, your meter will spin backward and the excess electricity is sent to the electric grid. This helps to offset the cost of your electricity usage at night or on cloudy days when your system is not producing electricity.

What size system should I install on my home or business?

System size depends on several factors, including how much electricity (kWh) is consumed on site and the orientation and tilt of the system, as well as available space and capital.
The first step is determine the annual kWh consumption of the home or business. Once calculated, you can pinpoint avenues on how to reduce your energy consumption by implementing energy-efficient improvements, a necessary first step before installing solar. If you reduce your kilowatt-hour consumption, you may be able to install a smaller PV system, in turn allowing for lower up-front costs and a shorter payback period.
