How does solar work
Harvesting the Sun hasn't been easier. Learn how your system converts sunlight into electricity to help yourself and the world be a better expression of itself.
The solar panels or modules convert sunlight into direct-current (DC) electricity
Solar inverter coverts DC electricity into alternating-current (AC) electricity to match your household loads
AC electricity flows through your main electrical panel to supply any loads under use including your electric vehicle (EV). Surplus will flow back to utility grid
The Utility Meter
The utility meter measures your energy use. The meter is equipped to record both your solar generation and your household consumption. The meter spins backward when your generation offsets your consumption
Your house and solar system will be connected to the grid at all times. Any surplus from your solar system will flow back to the grid and you will be credited. When the system is not able to offset your entire consumption, the grid will be your back up
The Solar Arquetypes
Different ways solar expresses itself
From roof-mounted to ground-mounted systems, systems connected to the grid offer a variety of incentives for going solar. Furthermore, there is an opportunity to decrease your carbon footprint and enjoy savings for years to come
From total off-the-grid systems ... to grid-tied systems that utilize batteries to shave some loads and avoid high utility rates when the Sun is down, battery-based systems can increase your versatility when it comes to managing energy.
