How Solar Works
It’s important to understand how solar works. Solar panels or modules are mounted onto your roof in an orientation that will provide maximum sun exposure. This is usually in the South and West facing directions. The sunlight captured is then converted to DC power through the solar panels.
The inverter will then convert the DC power to AC power so that you can use the electricity to run your appliances in your home or business.
Your local utility will use net metering to measure the amount of electricity used by your home or business. When your solar system produces more electricity than you can use, the excess will go to the utility grid and you will be provided with an energy offset credit. At night, power from the grid will be available when your solar system is not exposed to the sun.
