How Sunlight Becomes Solar Power

Sun to Solar Panel

When sunlight hits the solar panels, direct current is created

Solar Panel to Inverter

Direct current from the panels goes to an inverter, converting it to alternating current

Inverter to House

Alternating current sent from the inverter to an electrical panel distributes electricity throughout the house

Meter to Grid

If you produce more power than you actually use, the excess power is fed back into the electric grid, and SVEC credits your account
