How Solar Works

01

The Sun Rises and
Shines

The sun provides free energy every day in the form of sunlight.

02

Solar Panels Gather
Sunlight

Solar panels absorb the sunlight and turn it directly into electricity.

03

Inverters Convert
Electricity

Solar panels produce DC electricity and your home uses AC electricity. Inverters convert the DC into AC so your home can use it.

04

Electricity Travels
to Your Home

The electricity is sent directly to your home and powers all of your appliances.

05

Credits are
Gathered

When you produce more electricity than you use, any extra will then flow back out to the grid. Your meter will actually spin backwards and earn you credits.

06

Savings are Earned

Credits are extra savings when you produce more electricity than you use. The credits earned are reflected on your monthly utility bill. In other words, the utility company pays you.
