learn about

the sun

the free and infinite, renewable fuel that is the sun!

main grid

When your system GENERATES MORE electricity than your house can use, and your battery is full, the excess flows back to the grid and you get credits on your power bill for that excess!

When you need more electricity than you've stored, the grid will provide that additional power.

solar panels

Solar panels convert sunlight into clean green DC electricity. We use high-performing hardware from trusted brands ensuring a long life in all sorts of outdoor conditions. 25 year warranty - 6,000+ installs

inverter

The inverter converts DC electricity into AC electricity - the type of electricity that can be used in your your home.

batteries

With a battery, you can store the excess energy you produce during the day to use at night and in a power outage.
