How Does Solar Energy Work – Solar 101

HOW SOLAR ENERGY WORKS

Solar energy is a great way to help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money at the same time. But how does solar energy work? Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems – also known as solar panel systems, or solar energy systems – convert sunlight into electricity. You can use the electricity generated by your solar PV system to power your home, your business or even your car!

PV systems are made up of a number of components, the biggest and most important being: the solar panels, solar inverters, mounting platforms and cabling infrastructure. Combined, these components harness radiant light from the sun, convert it into electricity and transmit it into homes and businesses to power electrical devices, like lights and appliances, and provide heating and cooling via the electrical currents they create.

Here Is a General Overview of How Solar PV Systems Work.

1- Solar panels collect and convert the sun’s energy into electricity.
2 - The electricity flows through the wiring
3- BI-Directional Utility Meter
4 - Energy Disbursement
5-Battery Storage (optional)
