How Solar Works?
Solar PV System
The photovoltaic (PV) solar panel captures energy from the sun and then convert it to electricity. This direct current (DC) then travels to an inverter which then transfers this DC to alternating current (AC). This AC can then either be stored to a battery installed in the PV system for later use or be sent directly to any component that requires electric power. Excess power can also be sent back to the electric grid when there are no demands for power. In some cases, the system owner can earn or be credited for the surplus energy.
After your solar panels convert sunlight into DC (Direct Current) a microinverter which is installed beneath each panel will convert the DC power to alternating current (AC). These microinverters convert each panel into a smart module and this comes in very handy for installers to pinpoint any issues within your system. One main advantage of these inverters over a string inverter is that you are protected from a single point of failure within your system. If a microinverter stops operating your system will continue to produce clean energy until the issue is resolved.
