"Our Experience with WattSun was outstanding. Cayden was our first point of contact, and he made sure we understood everything we needed to choose and install the right system, size, production, warranties, and loan... The crew of installers were very professional and friendly. Communication was great, the job was done in less than two days and the finishes were super clean.
I would definitely recommend WattSun to my family and friends"
"Everyone at WattSun has been incredible to work with. The sales team did not pressure us. He provided the information, listened to what our plans were and confirmed if he was able to provide what we were looking for. During the process, we were kept up to date on the progress and timeline. The installation was seamless and the team did an amazing job. Everyone was great to work with and I would recommend WattSun to anyone looking to learn about solar or to purchase!"
"We love WattSun! After being in our home for a few years and seeing our electric bill creep up each month, we decided to go solar. Cayden walked us through the whole process and was extremely patient. I love how responsive they are and how easy the installation process was. This company has great communication, which is hard to come by these days. My only regret is not going solar sooner. Highly recommend!"
The cost of solar panels varies based on factors such as system size and equipment quality. Take the first step towards solar by requesting a personalized cost estimate for your home from WattSun Solar and Roofing.
The payback period typically ranges from 5 to 15 years, depending on factors like energy usage, incentive qualification, sun access, and more. Let us calculate your potential savings and determine your payback period with our free solar assessment. Contact us today to schedule.
Solar panels can significantly reduce electricity bills, potentially leading to savings of 20-100% depending on usage, system size, and utility company sellback rates. Discover how much you can save on your electricity bills by scheduling a consultation today.
Most homes can accommodate solar panels, but an on-site assessment is needed to determine feasibility and optimal placement. Roof angle, shading, home positioning, and roof age need to be considered when determining feasibility. Find out if your home is suitable for solar and schedule a site evaluation to explore your options.
Incentives and rebates vary by location but can include federal tax credits, state-level incentives, and utility company programs. Explore available incentives and rebates in your area to maximize your solar investment. Contact us to learn more.
Solar panels today typically have a manufacturer's warranty of at least 25 years. This includes guaranteed output levels at the end of that time frame of at least 80%. Discover the long-term benefits of solar and schedule your installation consultation today.

If you're considering harnessing the power of the sun to generate electricity for your home, understanding how grid-tied residential solar systems work is essential. In this blog post, we'll provide a comprehensive overview of grid-tied solar systems, explaining their functionality, benefits, and impact on your energy consumption. Read on to discover the inner workings of these systems and how they seamlessly integrate with the electrical grid.
A grid-tied residential solar system consists of the following key components:
Solar Panels: These photovoltaic (PV) panels capture sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity.
Inverter: The inverter converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is suitable for powering household appliances and feeding into the electrical grid.
Electrical Meter: The electrical meter measures the electricity generated by your solar system and the electricity consumed by your home.
Grid Connection: The solar system is connected to the electrical grid through a dedicated meter or an existing utility meter, allowing for bidirectional electricity flow.
When the sun shines on the solar panels, they generate DC electricity. The inverter then converts this DC electricity into AC electricity, which matches the electrical frequency of the grid. The AC electricity is either used to power your home's electrical loads or exported back to the grid if your solar system is generating more electricity than your home is consuming.
During periods of high electricity generation, such as sunny days, excess electricity is sent back to the grid. This surplus energy is credited to your utility account through a process called net metering or feed-in tariffs, depending on your location and utility company's policies. When your solar system produces less electricity than your home needs, you can draw power from the grid seamlessly.
Benefits of Grid-Tied Residential Solar Systems:
Cost Savings: By generating your own electricity, you can reduce your reliance on the grid and potentially lower your monthly utility bills. The surplus electricity you export can offset your consumption, resulting in savings over time.
Environmental Impact: Grid-tied residential solar systems help reduce reliance on fossil fuels and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. By generating clean, renewable energy, you contribute to a more sustainable future.
Grid Resilience: In the event of a power outage, some grid-tied solar systems can automatically shut down to ensure the safety of utility workers. However, with the addition of battery storage systems, you can have backup power during outages.
Grid-tied residential solar systems are an excellent choice for homeowners looking to harness the power of the sun while staying connected to the electrical grid. By understanding how these systems work, you can make informed decisions about implementing solar energy in your home. Embrace the cost savings, environmental benefits, and grid resilience offered by grid-tied residential solar systems, and take a step toward a more sustainable energy future.
