Solar Panels Turn the Sun’s Energy into Free Electricity for Your Home 

Solar panels work by capturing sunlight and transforming it into safe, usable electricity. It may sound like magic, but it’s all thanks to advanced photovoltaic (PV) technology. When the sun’s light hits your solar panels, it gets absorbed by their PV cells, generating direct current (DC) electricity. Your solar inverter then converts that DC electricity into usable alternating current (AC) electricity, which can be used to power your home.

During the day, solar panels generate more electricity than the average homeowner needs. This extra energy becomes currency that you can trade to PG&E in exchange for credits to your account. Those credits will help pay for any electricity you may need to buy from the utility company when the sun isn’t shining. This is called Net Energy Metering (NEM). NEM spins your electric meter backward and is one of the best California solar incentives! 

Benefits of Home Solar and Battery Installation 

Solar panel installation has a lot of benefits for California homeowners, helping you to: 

  • Reduce or eliminate your electric bills 
  • Protect yourself against rising electricity rates 
  • Qualify for solar incentives and tax credits 
  • Avoid PSPS events and unexpected power outages (with solar batteries) 
  • Reduce your reliance on fossil fuels 
  • Contribute to a cleaner environment for the next generation

Find the Right Home Solar System for Your Needs 

Solar panels don’t come in a one-size-fits-all system. At Six Rivers Solar, we offer a variety of options and will help you choose a solar system that is best suited to your energy needs and sustainability goals.

Grid-Tied Solar Panels

A simple and effective option for those who are not interested in batteries in the future, a grid-tied system generates power while the sun shines. This system saves you money by funneling the excess energy that it produces into the power grid for net energy metering, credits, or usage at a later time.

Grid-Tied Solar Panels with Battery Storage

For those who are concerned about having power when the grid is down, battery backup is the way to go! With a battery storage system, you will be able to select which loads in your home are the most important and keep them operating when outages are scheduled or occur suddenly. Your system will keep your batteries charged while also lowering your utility bill.

Grid-Tied Battery-Ready System

Perhaps batteries are not opportune for you right now, but may be an option you would like to explore in the future. This option has the benefit of being more affordable than a battery system—with the possibility of adding batteries in the future.

Battery Upgrade

Are batteries already a part of your solar energy system? Six Rivers Solar can work with you to adjust your system and ensure all the components work harmoniously with one another. Plus, when your existing solar battery (or batteries) reach the end of their life expectancy, we’re here to help you pick the right replacement for you.

Residential Off-Grid Solar

For those who follow an off-grid lifestyle and are looking to ditch loud and costly gas-powered generators, we are here to help! Six Rivers Solar has specialized in off-grid energy since our inception in 1980, and we offer a range of powerful and innovative equipment to keep your off-grid home powered effectively and efficiently.
