We start by assessing the current energy efficiency of your home or facility, and suggest potential updates to make in order to decrease the amount of energy needed.

How do solar panels work?
A home solar system, also known as a photovoltaic (PV) system, provides electricity from the sun’s rays. Most often, these home solar systems are installed on rooftops, where they happily sit and convert sunlight with no moving parts.
There are enough sunny days to generate some or all of the electricity required to power your Omaha area home. You remain connected to your local Nebraska or Iowa electric utility in case you need to use the grid as a giant backup battery.
The home solar power system ties into the local electric utility grid. The utility grid accepts the extra electricity your system provides when no one’s home and the sun is shining. When you’re home and there’s a lot of electricity being used and no sun shining, the grid provides the electricity you need.
Are Photovoltaics Right for Your Nebraska Home?
The nature of home solar power systems means that they have to more or less point to the sun. This means that you need to have a clear portion of roof that faces the southeast to southwest quadrant of the sky.
If the roof on your Omaha area home doesn’t face the right direction, a PV system can still be installed on a rack that can be mounted on your roof, or on a shed roof, or on the ground.
To get the most out of your home photovoltaic system, you need to boost your home efficiency. Doing an energy budget helps to size your system but also shows you where you can improve your energy savings.
