Solar & You

Solar & You
Thinking about going solar? We can help.
The Basics & Benefits of Solar
Installing solar at home benefits both you and the environment by reducing the amount of electricity purchased from the utility and your carbon footprint. A qualified contractor can guide you through the process.

Energy Efficiency First
Before “going solar” consider free and low-cost ways to make your home more efficient. Look for the ENERGY STAR® logo on light bulbs and appliances, and take our Efficiency Audit to ensure that your solar energy system is right-sized for your home.

Find a Contractor
A qualified contractor should assess your property, create a design and financial plan, and obtain permits. We recommend that you obtain at least three bids before signing a contract.

Maintaining Your Investment
A properly cared for solar energy system can extend the life of your system beyond the manufacturer’s warranty. There are simple ways to clean it yourself, or you can hire a professional to monitor and maintain it for you.

Net Energy Metering
Customers with solar panels should enroll in our Net Energy Metering (NEM) rate option. We’ll deduct the energy you export to the grid at times when generation exceeds on-site demand from your bill, and you may even earn surplus credits.

Understanding Your NEM Bill
We think energy should be easy to understand. So we created an animated video to help. It provides details about how your Net Energy Metering bill works, access links, and a form to help you learn more.
