How Solar Energy Works

  1. Solar panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
  2. An inverter converts the DC energy from your solar panels into usable alternating current (AC) electricity for your home.
  3. Solar energy powers your home. Any excess energy generated is sent to the grid and recorded as a credit on your monthly utility bill.
  4. Your solar panels save you money everyday for 30+ years while generating clean, renewable energy for your home and family
