How Solar
Works?

Wondering How Solar Systems Work?

With increasing electricity demand in the modern world, what better way to power your home than with clean, free energy from the sun? Here’s how it all works:

Solar Made Simple

  1. Sunlight hits the solar panels on the roof and produces DC electricity even when the sun’s not out.
  2. The DC gets sent to the inverter which converts the DC electricity to AC, which is usable in our homes.
  3. Any appliances in the house now run off this power during the day meaning you are no longer buying power from your energy provider.
  4. Any unused electricity is fed back into the grid through your import/export meter, which calculates all the exported electricity. At the end of the billing cycle it gets added up and you get paid credit for it! Happy days.
  5. Your home is now protected from rising electricity costs, you’re saving money and you’re saving the environment.

Solar System Setup

Solar systems work by capturing the sun’s energy and efficiently converting it into electricity for your home or business. Here’s the equipment you need for solar success:

Solar Panels

A multiplex of cells make up a solar panel and panels are connected to form a solar array. The more panels you set up, the more electricity you generate.

Inverters

Along with inverting DC to AC, inverters also provide ground fault protection and system stats. These include voltage and current on AC and DC circuits, energy production and maximum power point tracking.

Batteries

Batteries capture and store unused electricity produced by your solar panels to use when the sun goes down. Using stored energy created by the sun is a cleaner solution and a way to achieve energy self-sufficiency.

Monitoring Systems

A monitoring system will compute your:

  • Energy consumption 
  • Solar electricity production
  • Grid exports
  • Grid imports 
  • Battery charge and discharge power

This system will relay the data to your app every few seconds, you’ll be given a login where you can see various graphs and numbers that tell you what’s going on.
