Can solar really save me money on my power bill?
If you are a business or farm in 90% of situations, solar really can save you money on your power bill. On residential homes it can depend on shading and whether there is enough space to offset your electricity usage.
How does solar power work?
Solar panels capture energy from the sun and within the same process convert the sun’s energy into a DC electrical flow. The DC wire carrying the sun’s energy as electricity, flows from the wire into the inverter. The inverter inverts the DC electricity flowing into alternating current (AC) electricity. AC electricity is the same form of electricity that powers your home or business. Your system will still be connected to the grid for power when the sun goes down. Lumin Energy company also offers LG battery systems that can reserve energy for night time and back up usage.
What is net metering?
When your solar system produces more than you’re currently using, the excess is fed onto the grid. Your power company gives you per KWH retail credits for this energy on your monthly bill.
