Here comes the sun! Here comes the savings!


Mississippi approves net metering—and that’s great news for homeowners.

panel installRecently, the Mississippi legislature approved net metering, which allows homeowners who generate solar power to sell back excess electricity to their electricity providers. That makes solar panels an investment that is smarter than ever.

Here’s how it works: Solar panels capture and convert energy from the sun, first to power your home’s heat pump or air conditioner, and then with leftover energy, to power electronics and small appliances. You can keep your home on your area’s grid, so that at night, or when the sun isn’t available, the switch back to the grid is automatic.

That’s always meant substantial savings in monthly electricity costs—as well as an important aid to the environment since solar energy reduces the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere.

  • According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, this past year, roughly 9.5 gigawatts of solar capacity was added to the country’s grid, making it the year’s top energy source, and with more homes and businesses going solar, 1.7 gigawatts of installed capacity have been added.
  • Year over year, you can expect an investment in solar energy to pay off handsomely.

Solar panels are an uncomplicated install with Environment Masters, thanks to our expertise and experience, and while there are initial costs, savings over the long term are impressive.
