How does solar work?

The Sun’s energy hits the panels.

The Solar Panels convert the sun’s energy into DC power. This DC power travels to the inverter via the installed DC cable.

The Inverter converts the DC power to usable AC power and distributes it to either the house or back to the grid.

Your household appliances utilise the AC power from your solar and would only draw power from the grid if your usage surpassed what your solar was producing.

Your Meter reads the excess solar production being fed back to the grid so you can earn money from it. It also reads what you are drawing from the grid.

During periods of low sunlight where your system isn’t producing power, the grid supplies your household with electricity generated from power stations.
