Commercial Solar Panels

How do commercial solar panels work?

Solar modules collect energy from the sun and transform it into Direct Current (DC).  The DC travels to your inverter where it is then converted to Alternating Current (AC).  Generally household appliances use AC. Your net meter keeps track of the AC energy your solar photovoltaic (PV) system produces and if at any point you are producing more than you are using, that excess energy goes back onto the grid through the power lines.  When this extra (AC) power goes back onto the grid, your electric meter spins backwards, essentially giving you credit for when the sun goes down and you still need electricity.

Solar energy is a feel-good investment

When you generate your energy from the sun with solar panels, you are taking immediate action to reduce the carbon pollution that threatens our climate. Along with securing your financial future, using solar power reduces greenhouse gases and other pollutants. Installing solar panels is a concrete way to break your dependence on fossil fuels.
