How Solar Works
1) SOLAR PANELS
Solar panels on your home collect energy from the sun.
2) POWER INVERTER
The energy produced is direct current (DC) electricity which is converted to alternating current (AC) by the inverter.
3) ELECTRICAL PANEL
The AC power flows from the inverter to the electric panel to be distributed to your home’s lights and other electric appliances.
4) ENERGY METER
When your solar system generates more electricity than you use, excess power flows to the grid to be credited to your account.
5) UTILITY GRID
Utilities credit you for the exported power, but also provide backup when cloudy.
6) MONITORING SYSTEM
Our online tools monitor the system remotely and alert us to potential problems.
