- House electrical panel
During the day your solar power system (1) receives the sun’s light and produces DC electricity that is converted to AC electricity by the inverter (2) so that you can enter your house electrical panel (3) and power the appliances in your home.
Through a process called “Net Metering” excess electricity produced by your system is “sold’ to your utility and you are given a credit against your bill. Your system produces power during the day when the cost of electricity is high and you buy electricity in the evening when prices are low. The utility company acts like a battery for your home. You produce and send electricity during the day and pull from the utility or “grid” in the evening.
Solar power helps you to stabilize your electric costs and avoid annual utility rate increases over the years which compounds your savings.
Solar power is an investment that saves you money, can increase your property value, help clean our environment and generate local solar industry jobs. Wow!
