how it works
 

Solar PV
Solar PV (Photovoltaic) uses light sensitive semi-conducting materials that generate direct electric current when exposed to sunlight. This is then converted via an Inverter into Alternating Current, which can then be used as household electricity. This is different from Solar Thermal which uses the sun's energy to heat water. You will have seen this process in operation on simple solar powered calculators, it’s the same technology, just on a much larger scale.

The first step sees photons from the sun collected by the solar panels. As long as there is light, then the electricity will be produced. Secondly, the solar panels absorb the suns energy and excite the electrons in the solar panel, this in turn produces energy.

The third step is the Inverter which converts the DC (Direct Current) power produced by the panel into AC (Alternate Current) which can then be used in your home. Finally, the Electric Meter is the hub of your home energy system, and it accounts for power produced, consumed and sold back to the utility company.

Solar
Have you ever really wondered how solar power works? It is the use of the sun’s heat and light to produce electricity or heating. Light from the Sun contains energy, this changes into heat when it hits something solid which is why you feel warm in the sun. Solar power harnesses this clean natural resource without damaging the environment.
