How to Read My Electric Bill

"How do I read my electric bill?" is a common question from our customers. Electricity bills can seem confusing, but with a bit of guidance, they don't have to be. 

"Sunny's" electric bill below will show you how to read your electric bill once your solar array is up and running. Keep in mind, utilities differ in the way they present information, so your bill may differ in appearance.

Online Monitoring is the Only Way to See Your Total Production

What is not shown in your electric bill is the energy that was produced by the solar array and immediately consumed by the property. 

Because the energy never passed through the meter, it was never measured. Instead, the energy went straight from the solar array to where it was needed. You'll have to view your online monitoring portal to see your solar array's total energy production.

Please contact us if you have any questions on your bill after going solar.
