How Solar Works:
We can change sunlight directly to electricity using solar cells. Everyday, light hits your roof’s solar panels with photons (particles of sunlight). The solar panel converts those photons into electrons of direct current (“DC”). The inverter converts that “DC” power (commonly used in batteries) into alternating current or “AC” power. AC power is the kind of electrical that your television, computer, and toasters use when plugged into the wall outlet.
A net energy meter keeps track of all the power your solar system produces. Any solar energy energy that you do not use simultaneous with production will go back into the electrical grid through the meter. At night or on cloudy days, when your system is not producing more than your building needs, you will consume electricity from the grid as normal. Your utility will bill you for the “net” consumption for any given billing period and provide you with a dollar credit for any access during a given period. You can carry your bill credit forward for up to one year.
With nearly 100% annual access to the sun, the high desert is one of the best places to reap all the benefits of a solar electric system. Solar Now sells and installs solar electric systems that can provide your home or commercial property with 100% electric usage compensation. The energy you produce with your solar system will work as credit to your Southern California Edison account. Instead of paying in $$$, pay your bill with solar energy! Not connected to an energy grid? We do “Off Grid” solar electric systems as well. This type of system stores energy in its bank of batteries during the day so you are able run power off of that stored energy at night.
Can’t put solar panels on your roof? We customize and build car and RV ports that provide shade along with the perfect place for those panels! We can also custom design the structure to act as a patio shade cover for your back yard. Just tell us what you need and we’ll take care of it.
