Solar power is arguably the cleanest, most reliable form of renewable energy available, and it can be used in several forms to help power your home or business. Solar-powered photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the sun’s rays into electricity by exciting electrons in silicon cells using the photons of light from the sun. This electricity can then be used to supply renewable energy to your home or business.
Solar panels are typically installed on the roof of your home. These solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) power.
The DC power from the solar panels is sent to an inverter, where it is converted into alternating current (AC) power, or standard electrical current used in your home.
AC power travels from the inverter to the electrical panel, often called a breaker box. This power is now ready to be used in your home.
The utility meter continually measures your electrical supply; when your solar system produces more power than you need, the meter literally spins backward, accumulating credits with the utility company that will offset your next bill.
Your home remains connected to the utility grid to supply you with electricity when you need more power than your solar power system has produced, such as at night.
Solar Monitoring System allows home owner and WeGen Solar to continuosly monitor energy production and make sure your system is running smoothly. If production levels drop below normal, WeGen Solar will alert you and help remedy the situation.
