How It Works

More Information on How our Panels Work

Below you can find out exactly how both of our solar panel systems work.

How a Photovoltaic System Works

  • Solar Panels: Convert sunlight instantly into DC electric power.
  • Inverter: Converts DC power into standard household AC power for use in the home, synchronizing with utility power whenever the electrical grid is disturbing electricity.
  • Existing Electrical Panel: Distributes solar electricity and utility power throughout the house. 
  • Utility Meter: Actually spins backward when solar electricity generation exceeds house electricity consumption, sending power back to the electric utility for full credit at the retail rate it charges you. 
  • Utility Power: Is automatically provided at night and also during the day when your demand exceeds your solar production.

Off Grid Solar System

  • PV Array: Sunlight Passes through the silicone wafers in the PV modules knocking loose electrons which flow into wires as Direct Current (DC) electricity. 
  • Combiner Box: The PV modules are wired together in combiner box to output the correct system voltage (VDC)
  • Charge Controller: Controls the voltage going into the batteries and maintains the battery bank charge at pre-programmed limits. 
  • DC Disconnect: System shut-off with circuit breakers and ground fault protection. Required by code to ensure that all parts of system can be disconnected from all sources of power. 
  • Batteries: Batteries store the energy generated by your system during the day for use at night or on cloudy days. 
  • Inverter: Direct Current (DC) electricity from the PV Array is converted to Alternating Current (AC) electricity to supply the house loads. 
  • AC Panel: AC loads are connected here with circuit breakers.
  • AC Disconnect: AC output from your inverter and AC power from back-up power sources like generators if used are combined here with circuit breakers.
