More ABOUT PowerSOL USA
PowerSol USA was established in Tampa, Florida with one goal in mind–to provide homeowners across America with a simple and affordable way to get the best solar technology. We provide homeowners with easy options to get solar all while saving on their utilities.
“This is not just another solar company, they are professionals and the best. They were the most knowledgeable, provided the best upgrade options, and they don’t just install to the minimum requirements. Their packages included above code wiring and hardware. They went out of their way to make sure that we had the system we wanted, and went over and above to install the system with the best hardware and did not take the “easy” way to install the conduit and by doing so, kept it easier to upgrade in the future if we have the need. I HIGHLY recommend them. If you want the best for your dollars spent, you need to check them out. From the electrical team, to the installers, to the sales and support staff, you do not often find companies who care like they have shown to us. If I could give them 6 stars for an A+ effort I would do so without a doubt .” — Chatterton Residence
1. SOLAR PANELS
The panels themselves are made of silicone and silver. Silicone or solar cells absorb light energy and create a photovoltaic effect converting light energy into excess electron energy. The solar panel’s job is to take the excess electron energy and turn it into electric power. Silver acts as the conductor to pass electricity on to an inverter.
Direct Current (DC) electricity generated by the silicone solar cells is run through an inverter to make a conversion to Alternating Current (AC) power (the standard electrical current used in your home). Each solar cell generates roughly 1.0 Volt of electricity. The inverter combines and converts each volt of electricity into AC power ready to be used throughout your home.
3. ELECTRICAL PANEL
The AC power is run to the electrical panel (breaker box) where it can be distributed throughout your home.Silicone solar cells absorbing light energy creating a Photovoltaic Effect + Efficient Silver Conductors = Electricity for your home.
4. UTILITY METER
This is where savings on your utility bill kicks in. The utility meter is used to measure your electrical supply. Solar panels allow your home to produce more power than you will actually use. If you are producing excess power your utility company will offset your next bill.

HOW DOES NET METERING WORK?
After solar panels are installed on your home you begin producing power. Any excess power your home doesn’t use will be sent back to your utility company. Your electric meter will run backwards. You will feed excess energy to the utility company during the day and then receive it back during the nighttime, at no cost.
Net metering is a billing mechanism that gives you credit for the electricity your solar energy system is adding to the grid. During the daylight hours, your system will generally produce more energy than your home is using. As a result, the excess energy is transferred to the grid causing your electricity meter to run backwards. This acts as a credit against the electricity consumed at night or when your home’s use exceeds the system’s output.
HOW LONG WILL MY INSTALLATION TAKE?
Normally installation takes less than 1 day, occasionally it can take up to 2 days if it’s a very large system. PowerSol USA takes care of everything involved in the installation of your system, including system design and all applicable permits and inspections.

HOW DO I CLAIM THE FEDERAL TAX CREDIT?

A tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the amount of income tax you would otherwise owe.
