  • Will I Still Receive an Electric Bill if I Install Solar?
    The utility company will always charge a fee for using the grid and their meters, much the same way that a cable or internet provider charges you to access their systems, but the best part about solar is that by using the Net Metering Program, you can significantly reduce, or even cut your utility bill to $0 depending on your energy consumption and solar power production! In solar, the term "offset" is used to describe the difference between your systems yearly power production projection, and your previous years (on the utility) average yearly energy consumption, in percentage (What percentage of your usage is covered). If your offset is 110%, that means your solar panels will produce 110% of your previous annual energy usage. Basically, If your system produces significantly more energy than you use, you wont be bothered by the utility company!
