How Solar Energy Works

Updated: May 16, 2019

If you are thinking of installing solar panels for your home, take a look at the graphics below to gain an understanding of how solar works.

1. Solar panels convert sunlight to direct current (DC)

2. The inverter converts DC electricity to alternating current (AC), which is useable power for your homes appliances and electronics.

3. The electricity produced that is not used (over-production) is credited to the grid.
