How Solar Works
1. Sunlight and Your Solar Array
The sun is an incredible resource of energy! Solar panels soak up the energy the sun provides and converts sunshine into electricity.
2. Solar Inverter
Through the inverter, direct current (DC) power is converted from the solar panels into alternate current (AC) power for your home and/or business.
3. Net Energy Meter
The meter keeps track of all the energy your solar power system produces. Any energy you don’t use goes to the electrical grid.
4. Utility Grid
When you have excess/unused electricity, it is sent to the utility company where you can sell your power during peak hours and get credits back to you at night or during cloudy days.
