Got great information and eventually went solar with a company that I was put in contact with thanks to the site. Would definitely recommend as a solid starting point for anyone considering going solar!
I found this site to be particularly useful, not only in finding a contractor, but also for offering detailed info on solar power hardware.
I used their recommendation and hired one of the solar companies. The cost estimate was very close.

How do solar panels work?
Solar panels are mounted on your roof and wired together in groups called solar arrays. The power they generate flows into a solar inverter where the direct current (DC) electricity is converted into alternating current (AC) electricity that can be used by your home or exported to the electric grid.
