How Solar for Your Business Works


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


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


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


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 


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