Solar is a renewable form of energy that produces power from sunlight.
When the sun shines on your, it creates an electric current that flows from your panels to your solar inverter. Next, the solar inverter converts the energy into alternating current (AC) and sends it to your breaker box, which you can use to power your home.
Solar energy is one of the most plentiful forms of energy found on Earth! But it isn’t 100% efficient. That being said, there are various factors that can change the specific efficiency of your solar panels, including average sun exposure, weather patterns, type of panels and routine maintenance.
You can store the excess energy in your battery backup for later use during a power outage or at night. Depending on your state, you can also participate in a net metering program and potentially be credited for the excess energy that your solar panels generate.
Short answer — lots! When you install solar, you not only potentially save money on your electric bills each month and protect against future rising electricity rates, but you are able to contribute to the environmental benefits, which include, among other things, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants.
