How solar energy works
Solar reduces your electricity bills
Generating your own energy means you draw less from the grid, and therefore reduce your energy bill. Simple!
It improves the value of your home
Should you sell, having a solar system is a great value add for potential buyers. Add a solar battery for even more!
It reduces your carbon footprint
Being a renewable energy source, you can make a real impact by reducing your home's greenhouse gas emissions.
Solar is real time
When the sun is out, you’re generating power. So when clouds draw in or the sun goes down - you’re most likely going to be drawing from the grid. There are of course options. You can install a solar battery such as the Tesla Powerwall, store any power you didn’t use in real time, and use it later.
It’s a long game
If you’re planning on moving in the next couple of years, you may not reap the full benefits of your initial investment. To help estimate your quarterly saving and ROI, check out our solar calculator.
