Reading Your Electricity Bill

Knowing your energy usage is the first step to understanding how solar can save you money. The easiest way to find out how much you pay for electricity each month and how much energy you use is to take a detailed look at your electricity bill.

We encourage you to review our sample electricity bill to find out exactly what to look for. Equipped with this knowledge, you can find a solar contractor and determine how big (or small) your home’s system should be.
