How Do Solar a power systems work ?

Well there are few different types of solar electric systems the description below is the most common a basic grid tied type system meaning the Solar panels  absorb sunlight with photovoltaic cells, generating direct current (DC) energy at that point the energy converted into usable alternating current (AC) energy with the help of inverter. AC energy then flows through the home’s electrical panel and is distributed to power the loads in the house or is sent back to the grid.


There are a couple other types of systems that we will attempt to explain in easy to understand term in future posts. please check out our posts on Hybrid type solar systems and off grid solar systems both of these systems are far more difficult to design and install.   However they are still doable for the average person with the right research, a good plan, a basic understanding of electrical systems and some qualified help you can create any of these solar systems. As with any Electrical system work if you are not qualified to do the work do yourself a favor and hire someone who is there are many great electricians, independent solar installers out there as well as engineering firms that can help you with your design and installation of your solar power system. We have been creating a list of many of these companies based on geographic location and can assist you with finding the right people for the job.

Solar is the future
