What if I have solar panels but they are not covering my electric bill?

Updated: Jun 28, 2023

If you have solar panels but they are not covering your electric bill, there are a few possible reasons why.

  • The solar panels are not working properly. This could be due to a number of factors, such as shading, dirt, or damage.

  • Your energy usage has increased. This could be due to a number of factors, such as a new appliance, a growing family, or a change in your lifestyle.

  • Your solar system is not large enough. If you have a small solar system, it may not be able to generate enough electricity to cover your entire energy usage.

If you are concerned that your solar panels are not covering your electric bill, you should schedule a consultation with us. We can inspect your solar system and help you determine the cause of the problem.


Here are some of the things that we can recommend or help you do:

  • Inspect your solar panels. They can look for signs of damage or shading.

  • Clean your solar panels. Dirt and dust can reduce the efficiency of your solar panels.

  • Upgrade your solar system. If your solar system is not large enough, you may need to upgrade it.

  • Help you manage your energy usage. They can give you tips on how to reduce your energy usage.

If you are unable to fix the problem with your solar panels, you may be able to get a refund or a credit from your solar installer. You may also be able to get a tax credit from the federal government.
