Solar Panels: Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells that convert sunlight into DC power.
Inverter: The DC power is sent to an inverter, which converts the electricity into usable AC power – the power that we use every day.
Electric Panel: The AC power travels from the inverter to the electrical panel, or breaker box. This energy is then available to power your lights, appliances, air conditioning and all of your electrical needs.
Utility Grid: The utility meter records the net amount of energy generated through your solar energy system. When you create more power than you use, your meter will spin backward and the excess energy is sent to the electric grid. This offsets the cost of your electricity usage at night or on cloudy days when your system is not producing solar energy.
