The meter is a critical part of the solar energy system. In Massachusetts, net metering allows you to use your utility company to store your energy. Unlike a traditional power meter that spins in one direction, as you produce solar energy, your meter will literally spin backwards. Then, as you use electricity at night, the net meter allows you to pull energy from the grid so you always have power.

Whenever you are generating more power than you can use, the meter tracks the amount that you transmit to the utility grid. This is why a well designed solar system can produce enough power in a summer to help offset more power needed in winter months, when the sun shines less.

Here you can read a little more about net metering.

A solar panel is an assembly of individual solar “cells”, each almost always made from different forms of silicon. Each panel differs in the numbers of cells combined, from 60 to 72 per panel, and in the technology used in the manufacture of each cell and the assembly into a panel.

Because solar panel technology is constantly improving, there are a range of panel efficiency (%) and panel rating (kW) available for design. Not every installation calls for the newest and most expensive technology. Good system design is a balance between cost and performance, and often a well-established and earlier generation panel can deliver 25+ years of affordable, reliable service.

This is why SunRa Solar stays on top of developments and offers panels from a few manufacturers including LG Solar, one of the largest brands represented in Massachusetts, and others.

Every homeowner gets an immediate savings as soon as we flip the switch and you start to generate power. If you sign up to purchase, your agreement will spell out for you each monthly payment.

If you finance some or all of your solar energy system, your savings are easily calculated by comparing the sum of your new payments to your previous bills. If you purchase a system without financing, your monthly utility payments could be negligible.

The best news, whether you purchase outright, finance a purchase, or choose a lease you will be able to predictably bank your savings. Ask us to show you how in more detail by click to Contact Us. Or simply give us a call.

Whether paying cash or borrowing, a homeowner buying a solar energy system can take advantage of the Federal Income Tax Credit (ITC) of 30%.

Homeowners buying solar in Massachusetts are no longer able to accrue and trade Solar Renewable Energy Certificates under the new program program. The Solar Mass SMART. It was known as SREC 2 or SREC II. This program allows homeowners to sell the accrued credits to utilities in blocks of 1 MWh each. To learn more about this program and its current status, visit our Learning Center.

Massachusetts also allows Net Metering, which gives the solar system owner the ability to feed back to the utility grid through a special meter any momentarily generated solar power not needed by the home. Any extra is credited in kWh (kilowatt-hours), the same units you see on your power bill.
