How Solar for Your Business Works

commercial solar diagram

1

Solar panels convert photons of sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity

2

An inverter converts DC energy from the panels into alternating current (AC) electricity for your business

3

The AC electricity is sent from the inverter to the main electrical panel to power the building with solar energy

4

A smart meter measures both your solar production and energy use. When you produce more solar energy than you need, the meter spins backward and you receive a credit from your utility 

5

When you are not producing solar energy, the utility supplies your electricity. Your utility bill is offset by the solar energy you produce everyday
