Solar 101: How does it Work?

The good news is that solar is actually a lot easier to use than you may think.

One thing that may help you make up your mind to go green is the fact that switching to solar energy is rather easy.  In a nutshell, the process is as simple as you saying “yes” to choose solar power, and our expert team will do the rest.

What makes solar energy possible?

Solar panels are made of solar batteries that transform sunshine to direct current electrical power (DC electrical energy).  As long as rays are hitting your roofing system, through bright days, rainy days and even snowstorms.  Your panels are working to transform solar radiation right into DC electrical energy.  The final piece of the puzzle is an inverter.  This is necessary to get any kind of power for things like turning on the lights in your living room or watching television in your bedroom.

The Inverter

The inverter is a device that takes the DC electrical power produced by your solar panels and transforms it right into alternating existing power (AC electrical energy).  It is mounted on an outside wall surface of your residence or in the garage.

Smart Meter

This powerful piece of technology screens your power production and send the details to us and the utility via a cordless signal.  Given that it tracks your energy manufacturing 24/7, it will instantly inform us if it identifies troubles or irregularities.

Solar electrical power from your inverter moves to the electric panel, and after that right into your house where it powers your lights and appliances.  If you should create more power than you make use of, it streams into the utility grid and you obtain the solar credit ratings.

Network Meter

Finally, the net meter measures the amount of electricity you draw from the grid, including how much excess solar electricity your panels funnel into it.  So when you generate more power than you utilize, you obtain a credit score form the utility company.  Sounds like a pretty awesome deal if you ask us.

Now that we have covered the basics, you should have a good understanding of how solar panels provide energy to homes.  You can tell your friends and family just how easy it is.  When you go with Prime Energy, we make the process as easy as possible for you.  Once we have our initial consultation you can sit back, relax, and begin saving money each and every month on your power bill.  We invite you to contact us directly to get a cost-free examination to find out how much we can put back in your pocket.
