How Does It Work?
- Solar panels convert the sun’s energy into electricity.
- The Inverter changes the current from DC to AC enabling it to power electrical items.
- The electricity then passes through a breaker box to outlets in the home or building.
- Excess power from the solar array is then sent to the utility grid, this spins an electric meter backwards in what is known as “net metering”. Net metering permits the customer to get full credit for the retail value of the electricity the system generates.
