Leverage Excess Solar Energy Production to Maximize Savings


What is Net Metering?

Net metering is a billing mechanism that credits solar energy system owners for the electricity they add to the grid.  On average, only 20-40% of a solar energy system’s output goes into the grid, and this exported solar electricity generates credits which can be used to offset any nighttime energy use supplied by your utility company.

  • Generate solar power for your own home needs
  • Excess energy generates credits against future electricity use from the utility company - especially useful for nighttime energy consumption
  • Use credits to offset energy use when solar generation is low
  • You are only billed by the utility company for net energy use

Not all areas qualify for net metering. Our representatives can help you determine if you qualify over the phone.

things to consider

Solar Panels Increase Your Homes Value.

Solar panels are viewed as upgrades, like a renovated kitchen or a finished basement, so purchasing a solar energy system will likely increase your home's value. Studies show that homeowners pay a premium for a solar home; one study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory showed that on average, solar increased the value of a home by about $15,000. Although market factors like electricity rates and system size may impact the size of the premium, solar homes can sell for more than homes without PV.

I was connected with Sun Pro Solar and they really fit the bill. They offered a great experience discussing a solar solution with me for my home. They were very informative, open, and willing to discuss many different options. I would highly recommend them for any and all solar needs.

I'm really impressed with the installation and look of the panels. At first I was skeptical about how it would look on my roof but once it was up and finished, I actually love it. The workers we nice, respectful, and kept the area clean. I recommend Momentum Solar to anyone interested in going solar!
