What happens to my utility bill?
Once you go solar, you will have two bills: your new, dramatically reduced solar energy bill, and a smaller utility bill for any energy left that you need to use from the grid. Depending on the size of your system, your utility bill could be offset by up to 99% ─ but most utility companies charge a minimal rental fee that you are still responsible for paying.
Why are Suntuity Solar solutions so different from those of other installers?
Every Suntuity Solar system is custom engineered for our customers’ needs. Our mission is to deliver the best quality products and services that maximize the solar output and savings. Homeowners historically save more with Suntuity Solar.
What kind of maintenance is needed?
Solar power systems, if installed correctly, require minimal maintenance. There are no moving parts. Most high-quality panels have a life expectancy of 25-40 years and high-quality inverters have a life expectancy of 10-15 years.
What happens during the night or on cloudy days?
Solar panels produce energy when the sun is shining. At night or when it’s cloudy, the system will use credits from any excess power overproduced from the system during the day. This is the primary reason that on-grid solar solutions rely on the utility grid and net metering laws to provide supplemental power when your system isn’t producing.
How Solar Works
The sun shines down on the earth, as it normally does.
Sunlight hits the solar panels on your rooftop and creates DC (or direct current) electricity.
The solar panels absorb that energy and makes it useable.
Solar energy inverters convert DC power into useable AC (alternating current) electricity.
Your home starts generating cheaper & more sustainable energy.
The electrical panel distributes clean, affordable power throughout your home that reduces harmful emissions.
You receive utility credits for excess power.
Any excess power produced is sent back to the electrical grid to build credits on your home’s utility account in a process called net metering.
Always have power, even when your home isn't producing solar energy.
Your utility company will power your home with the stored credits at night or in inclement weather ─ so there is never a gap in energy usage.
