How Solar Works

Solar power works by converting light from the sun into electricity, which can then be used in your home and stored in a battery for use during blackouts.

Sunlight hits the solar panels, generating a DC electric current.

The generated electricity flows through a wire in the solar panels into an inverter, where it is transformed from DC electricity into AC electricity, which is used to power your home.

Another wire transports the AC electricity from the inverter to your home’s breaker box, which distributes the electricity throughout your home as needed.

If you have solar storage, excess electricity is stored in a battery for later use. If you generate more than you can store or do not have a storage system, excess energy is routed back to the grid.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many benefits to switching to solar energy. Aside from lowering your electricity bill, solar energy combats rising energy costs and prevents blackouts.

Sun, space, and location determine if your home can be updated with solar panels. A solar system needs unobstructed access to sunlight for most or all of the day. The best way to determine if your home is a candidate for solar is to request a solar consultation. You can also use Google’s Project Sunroof to see your solar potential.

There are many factors to consider when determining how many solar panels you will need for your home solar system. The biggest determining factor is the amount of energy (kWh) your home uses, which you can find on your utility bill. Equally as important is the amount of sunlight your home receives on a daily basis and the wattage of the panels you are purchasing. The best way to determine how many solar panels your home needs is to request a solar consultation.

The average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. household is 10,694 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year, which is an average of 877 per month. If you multiply that by the California average electricity rate of $0.2226 per kWh, you’ll find that the typical California family has electricity totalling around $2,380 per year. This means that if enough solar panels were installed to cover 100% of your electricity usage, the average Californian household would save $2,380 per year by switching to solar.

Yes! However, each household is different and savings could vary depending upon the size of your solar battery, how many times the battery is charged and discharged each day, your energy rates, how much electricity you use, and when you use it.

We have a 30 year production warranty and a 25 year warranty on inverters. The Sun Energy Complete Confidence Warranty is the only home solar warranty that covers your entire system, not just the panels, so you never have to wonder which company you can depend on.

If you paid cash for your entire solar system, then it is sold with your home. If you’ve used secure financing, the balance of your loan gets paid at closing through escrow. If you’ve used unsecured financing, you may need to pay off the balance due. Your mortgage lender can help clarify.
