How Does Solar Power Work?
Sunlight hits solar panels and generates a direct electric current (DC).
The DC current travels to an inverter where it’s changed to alternating current (AC), the kind of energy used to power your home.
Once converted, the power flows to your breaker box where it can be used to run the appliances in your home.
If you do not have a backup battery storage system, unused energy flows through your utility meter to the power utility grid. The meter actually runs backward, crediting your home for the electricity it has produced and added to the grid. This is called net metering.
When your system is not producing enough electricity for your home, it will draw power from the grid to keep your appliances running smoothly.
Do I Need Battery Storage?
Solar power is created and used to power your home as explained above.
Instead of being sent to the power utility grid, extra electricity produced is used to charge the battery. Depending on your solar system, we can help you choose the type of battery that’s right for you.
The power stored in your battery can be used to run your essential appliances in case of an outage, or it can be used during peak energy hours to offset higher time-of-use rates.
