First, the panels collect sunshine and create Direct Current. This direct current travels to an inverter that will convert the power into Alternating Current that can be used by the house. This solar energy now powers your house, and whatever electricity goes unused passes through your meter and back out to the energy grid, meeting power needs at other nearby buildings. Solar is a clean and renewable energy source that, if conditions are right, will power your home entirely, save you money, benefit the environment, and help supply some energy to others.
