How Solar Works
Navigation
There are three basic types of Solar Energy Systems for Homes and Businesses.  They are Grid-tie Systems, Grid-tie with Backup Systems, and Off-grid Systems.  All of these systems use Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels which are typically installed on the south facing roof of your house or office building (if there is not available space on your roof, contact us for other alternatives).  These panels produce DC electricity when the sun is available.

Grid-tie Systems
90% of Solar Energy Systems are Grid-tie Systems.  With Grid-tie systems, the DC electricity that is generated by the PV panels passes through wiring on the roof, down to an inverter which is mounted on the house.  The inverter converts the DC electricity to AC electricity which is compatible with the wiring and appliances in the home or office.  The AC electricity from the inverter passes to the main electrical panel where it can supply the needs of the building.

Grid-tie System
Typically, during sunny periods, excess energy is generated by the PV panels.  This excess electricity passes backward through the electric meter and to the electrical grid.  In most cases, you will get full or partial credit for this excess electricity on your electric bill.  When the sun is not shining, you will use electricity from the electric utility grid as you normally would if you did not have a Solar System.

This type of system can be sized to meet part or all of you electricity needs.  Systems that meet all of your needs will produce so much electricity during sunny periods that they totally offset the electricity used when the sun is not shining.
