Why go solar?
Sunlight is a clean, green, renewable energy source. Technology and efficiency advances combined with current incentive programs make solar panel systems more affordable in the long run than buying electricity from utility companies.
Solar panels create electricity which can be tied into existing utility grids or stored in batteries for an "off-grid" system. In certain areas of California, an "on-grid" system can take advantage of net metering so that utility bills are NET 0 or even credited positively.
