How Solar Works
In short, solar electric systems work by harvesting the sun’s light and changing it into usable electricity our home’s can use.
Step 1: Protons his the solar panel knocking negatively-charged electrons loose from their atoms creating direct current (DC) energy.
Step 2: Inside an inverter, the electrons are converted from DC energy to alternating current (AC) which is used in the home.
Step 3: Any excess solar electric you do not consume will turn your meter backwards earning you retail rate net metering credits.
There are two primary types of PV systems:
grid tied and standalone.
The most popular grid tied system is designed to operate with your utility company and any unused power is then fed back to the electric company to be used at a later time.
Standalone systems are designed to stand independent of the power grid and use batteries to store energy. Standalone systems are usually used in remote locations away from the energy grid.
