How does this system work?
We can change sunlight directly to electricity using solar cells. Every day, light hits your roof’s solar panels. The solar panel converts sunlight to direct current (“DC”) electricity. The inverter converts that “DC” power into alternating current or “AC” power. AC power is the kind of electricity that your electric appliances, like television, computer, air-conditioners, fans and fridges use when plugged into the wall outlet.
