Solar for Homes

Reach Next-Level Savings

If you have already put in the work to make your home or multifamliy building as energy efficient as possible, now is the perfect time to take the next step by installing a solar electric system. To help, Focus on Energy offers cash rebates for qualified solar electric installations.

Solar electric systems, also known as photovoltaic (PV) systems, use sunlight to generate electricity. To capture sunlight, solar panels or modules are strategically placed on roofs or ground mounted to maximize exposure to the sun. Systems are silent, very reliable, and require little ongoing maintenance.
