• How does a solar electric system work?
  • Solar panels mounted on your roof convert sunlight directly into DC power. A component called an inverter converts this DC power into AC power that can be used in your home. The solar system is connected seamlessly to the electric grid, so you are never without electrical power. During daylight hours, if your system is producing more electricity than you are using, your utility may allow net metering or the crediting of your utility account for the extra electricity that was returned back to the grid.
