How Does Solar Work?

It’s really as easy as 1-2-3. You generate free electricity from the sun that powers your home and any solar power you don’t use gets pushed back into the utility grid for a full value credit.

1
Convert Sunlight Into DC Electricity Solar panels are mounted on your roof and convert sunlight into DC electricity that flows to an inverter.

2
Inverter Creates AC Electricity Inverters convert the direct current (DC) power into alternating (AC) power that your home can use.

3
Spin Your Meter Backwards You’ll still have utility power when you need it. Any excess electricity will be delivered to the grid for a credit.
