How Solar Works: Solar 101

The U.S. is home to more than 2 million solar PV installations as of 2019

That tally is expected to double by 2023 to over 4 million. Solar energy for your home allows you to own your solar production instead of renting it from the electric company. The rent that our utilities charge increases every year. The payment for your solar system is fixed.  

Simple Financing & Clear Pricing
There are a variety of payment and financing options available for your home solar investment. Currently we offer direct purchase and 25 year, $0 down, 2.99% financing.
Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
The ITC is a 26% federal tax credit you can claim for the tax liability of residential investment in solar energy.
Solar EPC Partnerships
Radiant Solar is partnered with Titan Solar Power. They are our partners for inspection, engineering and installation. We work closely with their teams to ensure customer satisfaction and quality workmanship.

Craftsmanship You Can Count On

Done Right The First Time

Qualified, trained installers will handle your solar installation perfectly from beginning to end. We are chosen for having the best service, products, knowledge and experience to install a solar system seamlessly with the highest level of care and precision.

95% of all solar installations are grid-tied systems that include a Net-Metering agreement with your utility company.

Graphic depicts the sun exposing solar panels by arrows directing the path electricity takes from the home to the inverter and then to the NetMeter and electric company power grid

Here’s How Net-Metering works:

1. Solar panels mounted on the roof of a house generate electricity.
2. The electricity generated is converted into power that the house can use first.
3. The extra power is sent to the grid so we can use it on super-bad weather days and shorter days in the winter.
4. Net-Metered customers receive credit for the excess energy sent to the grid.
5. The power company tracks the (+)’s during the day and the (-)’s at night when we can’t make power.

We’d be glad to talk about each and every step. The good thing is that taking the first step doesn’t cost a thing!
