HOW DOES SOLAR PV WORK?


Even on cloudy days, the sun is giving off light. PV cells that are on the panels turn this sunlight into DC electricity. This current then flows onto an inverter which is then converted into AC electricity which is ready to use. This current of electricity is then fed through a meter and into your homes consumer unit. Electricity is now ready to use. Your Solar PV system with automatically use the free electricity your panels have generated then switch back to the grid as needed.
