Solar Energy

What is solar energy and how does it work?

Solar power is a clean, renewable energy source that is created by capturing light from the sun. Solar panels placed on top of a building convert sunlight into electricity, which is used to help provide energy for that building, but also feeds extra electricity back into the power grid, generating money for you. Even on cloudy days, solar panels are able to generate electricity.

At Roo’s Electrical, we explore the needs of your home, farm or business to design and install a solar system that meets your needs. While installing solar panels requires an initial investment, our customers quickly enjoy the savings that using solar energy creates.

We offer a complete design and installation service – this is unusual, since most electrical contractors normally do one or the other. We provide everything under one roof, making your switch to solar power more seamless, easy and affordable.
