How Solar Energy Works

Solar Panel Installation in New Jersey & New York

With the right technology, sunlight can become usable energy quickly and easily. Solar panels, made up of photovoltaic cells, can be installed on your roof and they convert sunlight into direct current (DC) power. This power travels to an inverter where it is converted to alternating current (AC) power, the form of electricity you use around your house. Your home still stays connected to the grid, allowing you to use power during the night or on cloudy days.

The last component of your system is the net energy meter, which tracks your total power usage. If your system creates more energy than your home consumes, the extra electricity is sold back to the power company, giving you credit on your next utility bill. This is something that is being used across the country by homeowners and business owners alike to cut back on energy bills, as well as help provide for a healthier environment.

Some other solar techniques include:

  • Transpired solar collectors. These can be used to preheat ventilation air for buildings.
  • Solar water heating systems. Made up of a solar collector, this uses the sun to direct heat to the water.
  • Concentrating solar power (CSP) systems. The energy of the sun reflects off devices such as mirror panels or troughs to produce heat, which in turn generates electricity.
