HOW DO THE SOLAR PANELS WORK?
A solar photovoltaic system is designed using a quantity of solar panels that are usually mounted on your roof. Each solar panel consists of photovoltaic cells typically made of thin layers of silicon wafers and looks slightly like blue or black tiles. When the daylight falls upon the cells, it creates an electric field. As the sunlight gets brighter, the more electricity is produced. This direct current (DC) directly flows to an inverter that converts it to Alternating current (AC) for use.
During the day, the solar panels generate electricity; the power generated will automatically feed your home in replacement of electricity from the grid and will power your appliances, lighting, etc. Any additional power you use above what your solar panels will produce at a certain point,will be removed from the grid, or, any anused power you create will be fed back to the electricity grid..
You can also install a battery back up to your solar system, allowing you to conserve the excess energy you create and utilising this later in the day rather than buying electricity from the grid
