How Do Solar Panels Work?
How Solar Works Step-by-Step
It’s really as easy as 1-2-3. You generate free electricity from the sun that powers your home and any solar power you don’t use gets pushed back into the utility grid for a full value credit.
Sunlight to DC Electricity
Solar panels are mounted on your roof and convert sunlight into DC electricity that flows to an inverter.
Converting DC to AC
Inverters convert the direct current (DC) power into alternating (AC) power that your home can use.

You’ll still have utility power when you need it. Any excess electricity will be delivered to the grid for a credit.
