How it works

Solar Alliance makes it easy to take control of your electricity bill. We provide everything you need to get solar installed at your home and begin producing cost effective, clean electricity. One call gets the process started, and you won’t need to call anyone else.

How solar energy works

Sunlight contains particles of energy called photons.

When the sun’s rays hit the solar panel, silicon inside the panel absorb the photons, forming an electrical current.

The direct current (DC) travels out of the panel to an inverter which changes it into the alternating current (AC) we use.

From the inverter the current travels to the breaker box.

From the breaker box it travels to outlets throughout the house.

Whatever isn’t used goes back into the electrical grid and is counted for later use by you under the net metering program.

You save money, and the world.

Why Choose Solar?

 

A brighter future includes reducing our dependence on electricity generated by burning fossil fuels. Human activity is dumping carbon dioxide and other global warming emissions into the earth’s atmosphere. That process traps heat and increases the planet’s temperature, creating harmful impacts on our health, our environment, and our climate.

Electricity production accounts for more than one-third of U.S. global warming emissions, with the majority generated by coal-fired power plants, which produce approximately 25 percent of total U.S. global warming emissions. Most renewable energy sources produce little to no global warming emissions. Generating electricity from renewable energy rather than fossil fuels offers significant public health benefits. The air and water pollution emitted by coal and natural gas plants is linked to breathing problems, neurological damage, heart attacks, and cancer. Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy has been found to reduce premature mortality and lost workdays, and it reduces overall healthcare costs.

When you install solar panels on your home, you are part of the solution. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions, global warming and the health risks associated with fossil fuels.

The move to solar sounds like a pretty good idea to us.
