Making Solar Accessible

    When it comes to solar energy, the benefits are plentiful. And, when you consider that electricity prices have increased over the past several years, going solar can provide a great opportunity to manage your long-term energy costs.

    How Billing Works

    We're all about keeping the process of solar billing easy to understand. With each monthly billing cycle, you'll receive two bills, one from your utility (as you always have), and one from IGS Solar. Here is what you can expect:

    IGS SOLAR BILL

    IGS Solar's bill will include a charge for ALL of the energy your system produces or your lease payment.

    Your Solar Production

    The amount of electricity your system produces will vary, due to changes in seasons, weather, and other conditions.

    Your system may produce less power during the winter, meaning you’d rely more on your utility’s grid power for your monthly electricity needs. As a result, you’ll likely be paying more to the utility, and less to IGS Solar. In the summer, your solar production may increase due to longer periods of sun. You’d probably require less grid power because your system might meet most of your needs. Most utilities will also give you a credit for any excess generation you don’t use.

    Get Some Credit

    When your solar production exceeds your home's electricity demand, your utility will credit you. The way each utility applies the credits varies, so be sure to check with yours to determine how it's handled.

    Net Metering

    IGS Solar will install an additional meter on your home to track your production levels in real-time, which is linked to your existing utility meter. When your utility meter counts backward, this means that your solar system is producing more power than you need, and that power is being sent back to the utility. This information is used to generate the bills you’ll receive from IGS Solar and the credits from your utility.
