HOW SOLAR WORKS

SOLAR PANELS

Solar panels capture the sun’s rays throughout the day. Panels convert sunlight into Direct Current (DC) electricity.

INVERTER

The inverter receives the DC electricity and converts it into AC (Alternating Current) electricity suitable for household use.

SAFETY DISCONNECT

The electricity then passes through a Safety Disconnect.

MAIN SERVICE PANEL

The main service panel distributes the electricity to the individual circuits in your home.

ELECTRIC METER

(Utility Grid-Tied) Excess electricity is sent back to the utility company, giving you kWh credits in exchange.

BATTERY

Excess electricity is sent to your batteries to charge them to capacity.

Net Metering (Grid-Tied)


What happens when your system produces more electricity than you are using at your property? Simple: it is sent out to the utility company to power the grid. The energy flow is tracked meticulously by your bi-directional electrical meter. This process is commonly known as Net Metering.
JAN DECSOLAR PRODUCTION ELECTRICITY USAGE

SOLAR PRODUCTION
PV system powers your home. Any excess electricity is sent back to the Utility Company giving your kWh credits in exchange.

DRAWING FROM THE GRID
At night or when the sun isn’t providing enough power for your home’s needs, the home is powered by electricity drawn from the grid.

PAYING THE BALANCE
Solar credit will accumulate for up to a year. At the end of the month, the homeowner is billed per kWh for grid usage minus the solar credits.
