Annual Energy Usage

At Day One Solar, we design our Solar Energy Systems based on several factors. Of these, the most important is your Annual Energy Usage (in kWhs, or kilowatt hours). We also look at your annual cost of electricity used, which is the sum of the last 12 months of the electrical portion of your utility bill. With this information, we calculate the size of the system you would need to achieve the ultimate in Home-Based Energy generation: NET ZERO!

Net Zero is just what it sounds like. When you get your Utility Bill, the amount due for the electrical portion is $0.00. How is that possible? Here’s how:

During the day, when your Day One Solar Energy System is cranking out power for your home, it is producing more than you typically use on an average day. The surplus energy is simply added to the Utility’s Power Grid through your electrical meter. There, the energy is used by other homes and businesses that are totally dependent on the grid. When the sun sets and you flip on your lights, you are taking back the energy you supplied to the Power Grid during the day. Your meter spins backward during the day, and forward at night.

When you get your electrical bill at the end of the year, you will find that you have generated as much or more than you have used. Viola! Net Zero.
