How Solar Works

If you’re not familiar with solar panels and solar power, our team excels at explaining solar technology in a way that anyone can understand. The good news is that the systems we install are incredibly simple and easy to use. You don’t need to switch them on in the morning or off at night. The system handles this process seamlessly and automatically.

You also don’t need to worry about switching between solar power and traditional power (“the grid”), as your solar system will determine when to make the switch based on your energy consumption. In fact, a SunVena solar system is very low maintenance and built to last for decades.

How Electricity Is Produced by Solar Panels

  • Solar panels are made of silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells. When the sun hits the panels, the PV cells absorb the sun’s rays and produce electricity in a process known as the Photovoltaic Effect. The electricity produced by the panels is called Direct Current (DC) electricity, which cannot be used to power your home, so the DC electricity is directed to your inverter.
  • The inverter converts DC electricity into Alternating Current (AC) electricity which can be used in your home. A switchboard ensures that your solar energy is used first, and only accesses additional energy from the grid when solar production isn’t high enough.
  • Houses with solar power are required to have a bi-directional utility meter installed by the electric company. This meter records all the power drawn to your house and the amount of solar energy exported back to the grid. This is called net-metering.
  • Any unused solar electricity is sent back to the grid, earning you credit on your electricity bill.
