HOW DOES SOLAR POWER ACTUALLY WORK?
Solar power is renewable energy resource that uses photovoltaic (PV) systems to create electricity. You generate free electricity from the sun that powers your home or Office reducing your electricity bills and impact on environment. Any solar power you don’t use gets pushed back into the utility grid for a full value credit
The process and equipment that can help you generate your own clean, more affordable energy is explained here.
1.Sunlight - The Sunlight is absorbed by the Solar Panels installed on roof. 2.Solar Panels—The solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity all day.
3.Inverter—The invertor converts the DC electricity generated by the solar panels into the alternating current (AC) electricity which you can use in your home or office.
4.Utility Meter—The utility meter measures your energy use. Any additional electricity that's not used by your home is fed back into the grid. It actually goes backward when your system generates more power than you immediately need. This excess energy offsets the energy you use at night.
5.Utility Grid—Your home is still connected to the grid. Electricity is drawn from the grid when you need more power than your solar energy system can produce. You’ll need that power from the utility company at night, but don’t worry. The cost is offset by any excess clean energy you put into the grid during the day.
