How Solar PV Panels work
Solar Photo Voltaic Panels collect the sun’s energy and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. This DC electricity is then inverted into alternating current (AC) which can be used anywhere in your home or business. The number of Solar Panels that are required depends on how much power you want to generate. Some may choose to have a few panels to run their swimming pool pump and heater or the air conditioner for their house. If you want to power your entire house, you will also need a battery bank to store the extra power if you are off grid (not connected to the local utility) or a Net Meter which sells the extra power you are not using, back to the local utility making you money.
