How Solar Power Works

1 2 3 4
1 Solar panels are installed on your roof and produce DC power.
2 The inverter is placed near the electrical panel and “inverts” the DC power from the solar panels into AC power that your home can use.
3 Your electrical panel provides power to your home. When your Solar System is producing more power than your home is consuming, you can literally watch your meter spin backwards.
4 The utility grid stores the excess power that your Solar System produces during the day. It also provides your home with extra energy in case you need more at night or during times of high energy usage.
