How It Works

Solar panels collect sun rays and convert them to an electrical current. The electrical current is routed through the inverter, which switches the electricity from DC to AC. After the inverter the electricity is connected through a breaker on the electrical panel in the home. If the home needs the electricity, it will be consumed on site. If there is excess, it will be fed back to the utility grid and the meter will run backwards.

Testimonials

I am most proud of my decision because I put my money where my mouth is.  I don't just say that I am concerned about climate change and support clean energy, I have made a personal investment/commitment to solving it - even if it is in a small incremental way.

We are very happy and proud of our decision to invest in solar production. It feels good to do right for the environment. The timing was right because of the incentives, the ever increasing cost of electricity, and the more and more clear evidence of global warming due largely to the burning of fossil fuels for energy.

It's been really fun to see how little my usage meter has advanced since the solar install, even though I have an electric heat pump for heating. It's going to be my lowest bill ever covering these last 2 months. I'm very curious to see how close the house gets to net-zero energy next year, once the summer sun is included.

This is our first home and we couldn’t wait to go solar. It’s an investment in our house and our country’s energy future... I can’t say enough great things about the people I worked with at SolTerra. Super positive, super friendly and always on the ball. I remember one night they got back to me at 10:30 at night. The customer service was awesome!
