How Home Solar Works

Do I Get Enough Sunlight?

When Life Gives You Sunshine, Make Electricity

The Eastern U.S. is a perfect place to go solar: we’re rich in sunlight hours, and the local government and utilities offer generous incentives and tax credits. In fact, a recent study showed that the mid-Atlantic outshines even California in rewarding homeowners for going solar: the region has a quicker payback and a higher rate of return for going solar than California.

Believe it or not, we get 85-95% as much sunshine per day as Florida, the official “sunshine state.” And we get almost twice as much sun as Germany, the world leader in solar installations.
