How Solar Works

del.png

A

The sun provides free energy to your solar panels which use it to create DC current.

B

You are always connected to the electric grid so you have power at night when your panels aren’t producing.

C

Power travels through the inverter which converts DC to a usable AC current.

D

AC power travels through to your electrical box which directs the current to all the appliances in the home.

E

Your utility meter measures production. Any over-production will spin your meter backwards, credit you for the output current, and send unused energy back to the grid.

Solar Panels in the Winter

  • Glass coating on top of panels allows snow to slide right off.

  • Panels are angled at about 14 degrees, also allowing anything to slide off.

  • Because of the electronic components, although not a lot, the panels heat up a few degrees. This is just enough to melt the snow on top.

  • Rain and snow on panels actually help because they clear off any dust and debris on top.

  • UV (ultra violet) rays are still able to penetrate through clouds in the winter.
