How does a solar power system work?

Basically, solar power captures energy supplied by the sun and channels it to an inverter. The energy is then converted to electricity to generate power your home. The different components of a solar system form Clotan Steel, leading solar energy company, includes:

  • Solar panels: Solar panels are the PV (photovoltaic panels) that are mounted on your roof top, which will capture the energy from the sun. The panels need to be installed in direct sunlight for optimal benefit. PV panels are made up of photovoltaic cells, made from silicon and other conductive materials.
  • Inverter: An AC-DC inverter will convert the low-voltage, high-current signals from the PV panels into 120VAC (or 240 VAC). This power is then compatible with your grid power.
  • Breaker box / electrical panel: The AC power is then sent from the inverter to the breaker box.
  • Utility meter: The utility meter will help you keep track of your energy generation (during the day), working in connection with the power to the utility grid.
