How does solar power convert sunlight into electricity I can use?
Solar panels convert sunlight into clean, efficient energy capable of powering homes year-round. Sunlight provides electricity travels to the panels, which travels through wires into a piece of equipment called an inverter. The inverter converts the electricity (Direct Current or DC) produced by the panels into the type of power a house needs (Alternating Current or AC). Once electricity goes through the inverter, it travels through the wires in your home's electrical panel. Any electricity you do not need is sent back to your local utility, which then provides you with a credit through an agreement called "net metering."
At night, when your panels are not generating electricity, you electricity continues to generate from the local utility; thus using the credits you earned during the daytime.
With our help, switching to solar power is easier and more rewarding than you might think. You can actually switch to solar power for $0 down* and lower your electricity bill immediately.
