How Does Solar Energy Work?

Get the Most Out of Solar Technology in Redlands & All of Southern California

With the right technology, anyone can harness the power of the sun to create an efficient, dependable, and sustainable source of energy. Solar panels, which are made up of photovoltaic cells, can quickly convert particles of sunlight into usable energy for your home or business. This works by capturing the sunlight and converting it from direct current (DC) power to alternating current (AC) electricity.

How does sunlight become electricity? With solar panels, the process is simple:

  • Particles of sunlight, or photons, hit your roof's solar panels
  • The panels covert photons into direct current electricity
  • DC electricity flows into an inverter, turning it into AC power
  • AC power is then used to power your lights and appliances

You Can Access Solar Energy Day or Night, Rain, or Shine

Another benefit of using solar technology is that your home or business will stay connected to a grid, so you will have access to solar energy day or night, rain, or shine. A net energy meter will also track your power usage, which means that any extra electricity will be sold back to the power company and credited on your next utility bill if your solar panels create more energy than you consume.
