Solar energy is created by the heat and light generated by the sun. We harness this energy by installing solar panels and convert it to electricity. This process gives solar energy the capability to power your home and heat elements (air and water). By harnessing the power of the sun, you can reduce your electricity costs by relying less on the grid network, and more on clean, sustainable energy.
So how does it all work exactly? Well let’s break it down. Your solar panels produce electricity directly from the sun’s energy. The panels are connected to an isolating switch, then to an inverter which will switch the DC produced energy into AC electricity that can now safely power your home. Once the energy is converted, your home will become the priority for all power produced by your system. If your consumption at home is LESS than the amount of electricity you produce, the excess is sent directly to the energy grid network. The grid will continue to feed your home power if your consumption is GREATER than the energy you produce (e.g., during the night). You are still able to enjoy all your normal household activities with a solar system, we just add in the benefit of reducing your electricity bill, providing you with a long-term savings.
Benefits of Solar Energy
The benefits of solar energy to you and your home are significant. A high quality tailored solar system will create long-lasting positive impacts on the environment we live in and share. More importantly however, investing in solar will generate the most positive impacts on your finances, and improve your quality of life at home.
