How Solar Energy Words
  • As the sun beats down, the solar panels on your roof collect the sun’s energy and converts it to DC power.

  • The power that has been collected from your solar panels is then sent to a solar inverter box, installed on the side of your home. The solar inverter box will convert the DC power into AC power so that is can be used by your home.

  • Your freshly converted AC power is then sent to your home’s electrical breaker box, where the utility meter measures your supply of electricity.

  • When your solar system produces any excess power, the meter adjusts and send the excess energy outward to a power grid for other solar customers to use. This excess power is reflected on your energy bill and you are credited for any energy that you may supply to the grid.
