how does it work?

Although solar energy is not a complex concept, it can seem daunting to navigate. Fortunately, we are available to assist you every step of the way. Our expertise enables us to not only help you identify the ideal solar products for your needs but to do so in an affordable manner. We firmly believe that solar energy should be accessible to everyone, not just the affluent, which is why we strive to find financing options that suit your specific circumstances rather than anyone else's.

Every household will produce and save different amounts, but we suggest using this solar calculator tool to estimate and visualize your future savings by simply inputting your address.

the Kumquat Solar process

Our expert technician will visit with you on your property, conduct an initial assessment, look at your past energy usage, and determine which type of solar installation will fit both your home and your lifestyle best.

Our team will design a custom solar solution that fits your individual needs. A solar design specialist will go over every detail to ensure maximum efficiency and optimal aesthetics.

We believe that solar should be available to everyone, so we will help connect you with a leading financer who will build a package that truly works for you.

After everything has been financed and permitted, we will schedule your installation. Depending on the size of your specific situation, this phase generally takes 1 to 7 days.

After everything is installed, we'll need to get you connected before you can produce energy. Connecting to the grid is necessary so your utility company can track how much energy you are producing.

Flip the switch, sit back, relax, and enjoy your new, sustainable, solar system.

harvest the power of the sun

Solar radiation is light – also known as electromagnetic radiation – that is emitted by the sun. When sunlight reaches a solar cell, electrons in the light are absorbed and converted.

  • 1The solar panels, made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, absorb sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity.
  • 2The DC electricity produced by the solar panels is sent to an inverter, which converts it into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used by household appliances.
  • 3The AC electricity is sent to the electrical panel of the house, where it is distributed to different circuits and used by various appliances.
  • 4If the solar panels produce more electricity than the household uses, the excess electricity is sent back to the grid through a process called net metering, which credits the homeowner for the excess electricity generated.
