HOW SOLAR ENERGY WORKS

Make your home your personal power plant!

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems – also known as solar panel systems, solar energy systems, or solar power 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- Solar inverters transform raw electricity into energy you can use
4 - Solar energy meets the public utility grid
