How a Solar Electric System Works
Join thousands of Southern Californians in making the switch to solar energy by installing solar electric panels on your roof.
1) Sun Shines on the Solar Panels
Throughout the day (even when it’s overcast or rainy), sunlight hits your solar panels and goes through a photovoltaic process converting it to DC electricity.
2) Inverter Changes Energy into Usable Electricity
From your solar panels, energy goes to the inverter (or micro-inverters) where it’s changed from DC electricity into AC electricity that you can use.
3) Power Up with Solar Energy
Use solar energy to power your home or business. Have more than you need? Send it back to the utility grid and receive credits for the overproduction.
4) Save Money on Your Electric Bill
Sit back, relax and take advantage of the solar savings: saving money by lowering your electric bill and saving the environment by using clean, renewable energy.
