1. Solar Panels: Once the sun comes out the rays from the sun hit the panels creating electricity.
2. Inverter: The DC (direct current) created by your solar panels goes to the inverter to convert the electricity into an AC (alternating current.)
3. Service Panel: The electricity is then utilized for your home.
4. Utility Grid: Any extra electricity will get stored in the power grid as credits.

The importance of net metering for residential solar and how it works. Your solar system will produce the majority of its power during the day, when most people are at work or school. Since, very little power is being used in the home at that time the extra energy produced by the solar system gets sent back into the utility grid.
1. Net Metering allows homeowners to store every unit of surplus solar energy or kilowatt hour (kwh) in the utility grid as a credit to be used later.
2. These credits are worth full retail value and give owners of a residential solar system the ability to use the credits instead of purchasing power from their utility provider.
3. Net Metering in Colorado allows a carryover of any unused solar credits.
4. All stored solar credits will turn into $$ at the end of every 12 month cycle!
5. This is a great way to store your extra solar energy and make money while doing it.
