Solar panels can do wonders for your home's energy efficiency.
More and more homeowners are taking an interest in the incredible savings offered by solar panel installation. Thanks to advances in solar photovoltaic (PV) technology the price continues to go down, making solar panels an affordable option for your average homeowner.
Why does this matter? Not only do solar panels help the environment, but they also generate effectively free electricity that can be used to lower your energy bills. If you produce enough electricity you can even sell the excess back to the electric company for further savings! That's without even mentioning the local and federal incentive programs.

First solar panels are mounted on a south-facing roof and, if necessary, the area is adjusted (trees trimmed, etc) to make sure that the solar panels receive the maximum amount of sunlight. These panels will absorb that sunlight and convert the direct current (DC) the solar cells collect into alternating current (AC). This AC electricity is then fed into the electric meter. Most "grid-connected" solar PV systems let you use both solar electricity and the electricity provided by the electric company. In most cases, you can even sell your excess solar electricity back to the electric company.
Once the solar PV system is installed they are nearly maintenance free and will generate electricity whenever the sun is out throughout their roughly 25-year lifespan. This means you might even generate more electricity than you need during bright days when you're not using much electricity. Due to net metering regulations, your local electric utility must purchase that surplus electricity from you. This purchase is reflected in a decrease in your electric bill. While the exact savings differ based on the size of your system and energy consumption, many homeowners can expect a significant decrease in their electric bill.
