FAQ

How does Vivint solar work?

Most solar panel systems work like this: Your solar panels receive sunlight, the panel cells activate and produce an electrical current, and then your solar inverter converts that current (DC electricity) into a form that can power your home (AC electricity). With Smart Energy from Vivint, the only difference is you can view your solar panel production data—system status, energy savings, lifetime conversions—on the same app you use to monitor and manage the rest of your home.
