The Benefits of Solar Electricity in Sacramento

The cost of going solar does require a primary investment. But the month–to–month savings you’ll see as a result will quickly add up to give you an optimal return on investment. Additionally, there are great financial incentives out there today to help you with the initial purchase, such as the Solar Federal Tax Credit.

Depending on your credit score, it’s very likely that you can finance a solar electric system and save enough money with lower electric bills that you’ll see no—or very little—increase on your monthly payments. It’s similar to having your electric company pay for your solar PV panels!

How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar photovoltaic panels convert sunlight into electricity due to the photovoltaic effect—that is, when sunlight strikes the special material which solar panels are made of, the material sheds electrons. The electrons are then absorbed by an electrical circuit embedded within the material.

Next, the electrons form a direct current which is converted into alternating current by an inverter that’s installed with your solar PV panels. This alternating current is then run into your home, and can be used by any electrical device in your Sacramento, CA home!
