Learn about Solar PV Systems 1

1. Solar Panels

The panels are made of silicon, which converts light energy into electric power through the photovoltaic effect.

2. Inverter

Direct Current (DC) generated by the solar panels is run through an inverter, which converts it to the Alternating Current (AC) used in your home.

3. Electrical Panel

The AC power is run to the electrical panel, where it can be distributed throughout your household.

4. Utility Meter

Electricity generated by your solar panels offsets power from the grid, up to 100% of the variable portion of your monthly electricity bill!
