The Solar Energy Process
It’s clean. It’s free. Shouldn’t you take advantage of it?
Solar is the most abundant source of energy on planet earth. At any given moment, enough solar energy strikes the earth’s surface to satisfy 10,000 times the world’s total energy needs. Best of all…sunshine is free!
A solar energy system from Sunshine Solar Sales Group lets you capture the sun’s energy and turn it into electricity for your home. In very simple terms, here’s how it works:
How Your Solar Energy System Will Work
1. Solar Panels
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells. When sunlight strikes the solar panel, the PV cells convert it into direct current (DC) electricity.
Most homes in the United States don’t run on DC current electricity, so an inverter converts it into the alternating current (AC) electricity that your home can use.
3. Monitoring System
A special monitoring system constantly sends information about your solar installation, including the amount of energy it generates, to your solar provider, to make sure your solar energy system is always operating at peak performance.
4. Utility Grid
Your solar system is still connected to your local utility grid to provide power for your home after sundown. Connection to the grid also allows your solar system to return to the grid any excess clean energy your system generates during the day. A utility meter measures your power consumption and solar output.
The Sunshine Solar Sales Group Process: Getting Started
Step 1. Get your FREE estimate
Call Sunshine Solar Sales Group at 727-306-2196 for a FREE consultation and estimate for a complete explanation of the potential energy production and bill savings you could enjoy with your new rooftop solar system.
Step 2. Finalize the agreement
Review your estimate and when everything is to your satisfaction, give us the “thumbs up” to get started.
Step 3. System design approval and permitting
Review and approve your system design so SSSG can obtain the necessary permits from your local building department. (Yes, we handle that for you).
Step 4. System installation and inspection
Typical systems can be installed in a day or two. After installation, your local city and utility representatives will come out to your home to inspect your new system.
Step 5. Utility net metering agreement
Residential solar systems often generate more electricity than your home uses during daylight hours, so you’ll need a net-metering account with your utility (where they buy back the excess electricity from you). We’ll help you select the right plan to maximize your savings over time.
Step 6. Switch on and start saving!
Once everything is finalized, you can switch on your system and start enjoying the benefits of generating your own clean, efficient, money-saving power!
