How it Work

A Residential Solar Energy System is a simple way to protect the environment, and realize immediate financial benefits. Very simply, your system consists of five basic components:

1: Solar Modules

Mounted on the rooftop of your residence in clear view of the sun.
The sunlight is directly converted into DC power through solar cells.

2: Solar Inverter

Converts DC power produced from the solar modules, into usable AC power.
AC power is the same type of electricity provided by your local utility.

3: Breaker Panel

Before the AC power reaches your home, it is received by the electrical service panel.
Electricity is then distributed as needed to your home.

4: Utility Meter

The Utility Meter measures the amount of electricity provided to your home by your local utility.
The electricity produced by your solar energy system offsets the measurement (essentially the meter spins in reverse).

5: Utility Grid

The Utility Grid is controlled by your electric company and it provides electricity automatically when needed — on demand.
During the day excess solar production provides energy offset credit; during the night power is readily available from the grid for your home.
