Facts About Solar Energy: How Solar Panels Work

Solar Panels

Energy from the sun is collected by the solar panels and is converted to DC electricity.

Inverter

The inverter collects the DC power from the solar panels and converts it to AC power.

Main Service Panel

AC power from the inverter is fed through the main service panel and into your building.

Utility Grid

Your building will remain connected to the utility grid to provide sufficient power for all of your loads.

Utility Meter

The inverter is tied into your main breaker panel and the power you generate gets recorded by a bi-directional or “net” meter. Energy generated will offset what you would have normally used from the utility and any excess energy will be counted as credit towards the next month.
