Solar panels work by harvesting energy from the sun. When this happens it creates direct current electricity.
Once this energy has been absorbed by the solar panel, it is passed through to a solar inverter which converts the energy into Alternating Current electricity (AC).
The AC current is then used to power your home!
This solar energy can power anything from your lights, fridge even your garage door.
Sometimes you can have an excess of power that is not being used.
You can sell your solar panel energy back to the Grid meaning that other homes can make use of the unused power generated by your solar panels.
