A solar system can generate electricity silently and without any moving parts. Sunlight falls on the solar panels generating DC electricity. That DC electricity is then converted into household 120/240V AC electricity by the inverters. The electricity will go to your appliances and lights and or to the grid.
Enough sunlight falls on the earth in one hour to power every electrical device on our planet for an entire year! Which makes it easy to tap into the power of the sun using affordable solar systems.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE SUN ISN’T SHINING?
At night and during cloudy weather, the solar system’s output is reduced or stopped, and your home will get electricity directly from the utility grid. You’re always connected to the grid, so you can have as much power as you need, regardless of whether the solar system is able to put out any power.
What if my panels produce more energy than my home needs?
When the sun is shining, the power produced goes to reducing your usage at the time, and if it exceeds, the meter goes backwards, counting down your electric use and bill. You will enter into a “net-metering” agreement with your utility that allows this to happen seamlessly. Some months you may find your system generates more power than you use. This is fine; this will give you a credit you during a month you produce more than you use.
