Residential solar power systems use solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity, reducing your reliance on traditional energy sources and lowering your monthly energy costs.

Residential solar panels can also be installed a ground-mounted system, depending on the homeowners property and preferences.

A residential rooftop solar installation is virtually maintenance free. After it is installed it will capture and convert sunlight into usage electricity for your home. When your system creates more power than you can use the excess energy will be delivered to your neighbors in accordance with your utilities net metering agreement.
Over the lifetime of a residential rooftop solar system homeowners create their own electricity at a lower cost per watt than they can buy it from the local power company. Residential solar can help you become more self-reliant and save you money.

Residential rooftop solar installations are typically “grid-tied systems”. A grid-tied solar installation is the most affordable and convenient residential solar installation. It allows the homeowner to take advantage of net metering agreements. It also allows the homeowner to pull additional electricity from the power grid when necessary and allows the homeowner to push excess electricity their rooftop solar installation creates back to the power grid to be used by others. It is possible to have an “off-grid solar installation” but it is more complicated.
