Switching to solar shouldn't be complicated. While other companies promise simplicity they simply aren't built to provide it. We handle every detail of your switch to solar- from start to finish. It's the details that make all the difference. From your custom-designed system using the highest quality equipment, to your dedicated Project Manager who's with you every step of the way, to our in-house teams of designers, surveyors, installers and more- this is how solar should be done.

NEM 3.0 (Net Energy Metering)

Modern Instinct Construction Images
NEM 3.0 marks the latest evolution in the state's net metering program, building upon the successes of its predecessors. For California residents, this iteration is crucial as it ensures a fair and viable compensation structure for the surplus energy they contribute to the grid from their solar installations. By addressing the economic dynamics of solar energy, NEM 3.0 aims to sustain the attractiveness of solar investments, allowing homeowners to continue reaping the benefits of clean energy production.

Staying informed about the specifics of NEM 3.0 is essential for California residents looking to make informed decisions about their solar energy investments, ensuring long-term sustainability and economic viability.

The Solar Installation Process

Installing solar panels doesn't happen overnight, there's a process for what needs to happen to get your panels ready to begin powering your home. Overall, from the day you sign your contract, it will typically take between one and three months before your solar panels are grid-connected and producing energy for your home.
We will do a full site overview. Measure your annual total energy usage and put together a system that will provide as much electricity as the roof size and shape will allow for the number of panels. Many factors come into play when deciding on the system size. Things to consider are: power requirements of the home, roof type and size, angle of the roof, shading from trees or other structures, and roof location in regards to optimal direct sunlight from morning to night

How Solar Works

1- Sunlight activates the panels: Your solar panels are made up of silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells. When sunlight hits your solar panels, the solar PV cells absorb the sunlights rays and electricity is produced via the Photovoltaic Effect. The electricity produced by your panels is called Direct Current (DC) electricity, and which is not suitable to be used in your home by your appliances. Instead, the DC electricity is directed to your central inverter (or micro inverter, depending on your system set up).

3- The electrical energy is converted: Your inverter is able to convert the DC electricity into Alternating Current (AC) electricity, which can be used in your home. From here, the AC electricity is directed to your switchboard.

5- A net meter measures usage: Any unused solar electricity is then sent back to the grid. Exporting solar power back to the grid will earn you a credit on your electricity bill, called a feed-in tariff (FiT). Your electricity bills will then take into account the electricity you purchase from the grid, plus credits for the electricity generated by your solar power system that you dont use.
2- The cells produce electrical current: Your inverter is able to convert the DC electricity into Alternating Current (AC) electricity, which can be used in your home. From here, the AC electricity is directed to your switchboard.

4- The converted electricity powers your home: All households with solar are required to have a bi-directional meter (utility meter), which your electricity retailer will install for you. A bi-directional meter is able to record all the power that is drawn to the house, but also record the amount of solar energy that is exported back to the grid. This is called net-metering.
