How Solar Works
1. Solar Panels
Energy from the sun hits the solar panel and is converted into Direct Current (DC) electricity, which is sent to the inverter.
The inverter converts the DC energy produced by the panels into Alternating Current (AC) electricity. This is the energy used in our homes and businesses.
3. Monitoring System
You can see how much your system is producing using an app or web-based monitoring system. The system will also feed information to your solar provider to ensure optimal performance.
4. Network Meter
When your system produces more energy than is needed, the excess energy is sent back to the grid, spinning the meter backwards!
