Why might my first bill seem high?

Solarus bills one month in advance for service. Your first bill will include the advanced one month of service and any prorated charges for the dates that are outside your billing cycle. For example, Solarus services are installed in your home on the 15th of the month. Your first bill will include charges from the 15th to the end of the month plus one month of service for the upcoming month.
