Definition of Terms
This is a State of Arizona and California law, which permits homeowners to store excess Solar Energy on the grid (At no cost). The investor owned utilities are required to follow this law.
This is the device which changes D/C Solar Energy (generated by panels), to A/C power (your home uses).
Net-Zero refers to a power bill, (if you did not purchase any energy from the utility, just taxes and fees).
Grid parity occurs when an alternative energy source can generate power at a leveled cost of electricity (LCOE) that is less than or equal to the price of purchasing power from the electricity grid. This happens every day when you finance a system over time. Typical Solar loans have lower monthly payments, than utility rates over time.
