Solar Panels

Solar panels are made of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight to direct current, or DC electricity.

Inverter

The inverter  takes the DC electricity produced by your solar panels and turns it into usable alternating current, or AC electricity.

Utility Meter

Measures the amount of solar production sent to the utility grid. If you use more power than your system produces, it measures how much power you drew from the grid.

Electric Bill

You'll receive monthly statements from the utility company which show how much power you used. If your usage exceeds your solar system's allotted production, you will see a charge.
