HOW IT WORKS

Our Residential Solar Services are a simple and reliable way to reduce your energy bill, while helping lead the way in green energy.

Sunlight is converted into Direct Current (DC) electricity by the solar panels.

The (DC) electricity is sent to the inverter which converts the power into Alternating Current (AC).

A solar inverter then feeds this (AC) electricity to the building's electrical panel, allowing it to power the electrical appliances and lights.

Excess energy runs your meter backwards! You are now only billed for the difference between what you make and what you have used.

Watts, Kilowatts, and Hours

Kilowatt-hours and Watts are the most familiar units of electricity that we use – but what do they measure, and how do they relate to residential solar services? Watts (W) measure the amount of power an appliance consumes or produces – for example, a LED lightbulb might use 10 W of electricity. A typical solar panel ranges from 300-450 W, which refers to the amount of electricity it produces when sitting directly in the sun.

We track electricity consumption and production over time in Watt-hours (Wh), which measure one W of consumption over one hour. So, if you left that 10 W LED bulb on for two hours, it would consume 20 Wh, and a 300 W solar panel would produce 600 Wh if it were soaking up the sun for two hours.

As you can imagine, those Wh can add up quickly in most homes, so your electricity bill uses kilowatt-hours (kWh) (1,000 Watt-hours) to measure your electricity consumption over the course of a month – as well as your electricity production if you have solar panels!

See what you can do when you add a battery storage system with your solar panels.

Residential Solar Services - How Solar Works

SANDBOX SOLAR IS THE RIGHT WAY TO SOLAR

 

“We had a great experience with all of the people at Sandbox. Ian was very knowledgeable, thorough, and detailed for the entire process from quote to follow-up. Everything was on time and seamless. They did all the permitting and helped with rebate paperwork as well. After the install, we had a small issue with the inverter software and Ian was very quick to respond even on a holiday weekend. He took the time to troubleshoot and even contacted the inverter supplier to make sure we were taken care of. The system was back up and running less than 24 hours after first contact! Great service from everyone and easy to work with.”
