Illustration of how a solar power system works

Solar Panel Index Solar Panels

Solar modules absorb the energy in the sunlight and generate DC (Direct Current) power which is sent to the inverter.

Inverter Index Inverter

The inverter converts the DC power into 240V AC (Alternating Current) Power.

Switchboard Index Electric Switchboard

The converted power then travels to your electric switchboard, which will be consumed by your electrical appliances.

Electricity Meter Index Electricity Meter

Whenever the power generated by the solar power system exceeds the power consumed by your house, those extra power is fed back into the electricity grid through your electricity meter.

Electricity Grid Index Electricity Grid

You are still connected to the electricity grid, when the solar power system does not generate enough power, the grid will take over the load.
