How It Works
- Mounted on the rooftop of your residence in clear view of the sun.
- The sunlight is directly converted into DC power through solar cells.
- Converts DC power produced from the solar modules, into usable AC power.
- AC power is the same type of electricity provided by your local utility.
- Before the AC power reaches your home, it is received by the electrical service panel.
- Electricity is then distributed as needed to your home.
- The Utility Meter measures the amount of electricity provided to your home by your local utility.
- Production by solar energy system offsets the measurement (essentially the meter spins in reverse).
- The Utility Grid is controlled by your electric company and it provides electricity automatically when needed - on demand.
- During the day, excess solar production provides energy offset credit; during the night, power is readily available from the grid for your home.

Potential Solar Savings
Federal Income Tax Credit-this credit applies to all residential solar installations on primary or secondary homes. To receive this credit, Residential Energy Credits Form 5695 needs to be submitted with taxes. Now is the time to invest in solar, as the credit will decrease as follows:
- 30% of the total cost to go solar, including installation
- Credit drops to 26% for tax year 2020
- Credit drops to 22% for tax year 2021
- Credit expires as of 12/31/2021
State incentives vary by town, though these can also add a significant savings on the cost to go solar. A SAVKAT representative will confirm which incentives apply to your project.
Facts & Statistics
- Solar generation offsets more than 73 million metric tons of CO2 emissions each year, equivalent to taking 15.6 million vehicles off the road and planting nearly 1.2 billion trees.
- There are now more than 1.9 million solar installations in the U.S.
- In 2018, a new solar project was installed in the U.S. every 100 seconds.
- Over 64 GW of total solar capacity now installed with an average annual growth rate of 50% over the last 10 years. That generates enough electricity to power more than 12.3 million homes.
