Solar 101: How it Works
Solar panels turn energy from the sun into electricity for your home. It sounds like magic, but it’s just science. When the photovoltaic (PV) cells in your panels are hit with sunlight, they generate direct current (DC) electricity. A solar inverter converts the DC electricity into usable, alternating current (AC) electricity, which is what our homes and buildings are wired to use. The AC electricity is sent to your electrical panel, which distributes it throughout your home as needed. Any power your panels generate that you don’t immediately use is sent directly to the grid for net metering or stored in a solar battery for later use.
You won’t notice any difference in how your lights and appliances work with solar power, but you will see a difference in your electric bills.
