Solar Power at Home

Installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on your roof is a great way to save money on your electric bill while also generating renewable energy going to the grid.

Residents interested in installing solar should research whether their home’s solar energy potential would make an installation viable. Residents interested should also research purchasing options and the steps involved. To learn more, please review the Department of Energy’s Solar Planning Guide
