Whether you install your own panels or subscribe to Community Solar, you can use the energy constantly produced by the sun to power your home.
Solar panels can be mounted on a roof or on the ground to produce electricity. Panels are connected to the electric grid, so the supply coming into your home is not disrupted when the sun is not shining. Solar energy cannot be stored for later use unless you install a battery. There is even a newer technology that can reroof your entire house in solar shingles!
Contact a solar contractor to assess if your property is right for solar panels. Contractors will help you lease or buy a system and can help you understand when you should expect to pay off your system from the savings you receive.
