How does solar power work?

There's a lot to consider before going solar. First, it's important to understand how solar power works and how sunshine is converted into electricity.

How solar works

1. Solar panels

capture sunlight during the day and convert it into Direct Current (DC).

2. Inverter

receives that direct current from the panels and converts it into Alternate Current (AC – the electricity you use in your home). You use this electricity when you need it, and send any excess back to the grid or to a battery storage system.

3. Battery storage

means any excess energy your system generates can be stored for use later even when the sun is not shining. When the battery is fully charged, you can send the excess energy back to the grid (step 5).

4. Digital meter

measures your electricity use and can tell you more about your energy habits.

5. Power grid

receives any excess energy you generate, and a feed-in tariff can allow you to get a credit on your bill for that excess electricity. You can also draw the extra electricity back from the grid if your system does not generate enough.
