Solar Modules (panels) react to sunlight, creating a flow of electrons (DC electricity).
The inverter converts the raw DC electricity to grid standard (AC electricity).
AC electricity is sent to the electric panel to be used in the home.
When the system produces more power than the home is using, the excess is sent to the grid. A bi-directional meter keeps track of the flow to and from the grid.
The cost of your solar investment will vary greatly depending on: the size of your system, your location, and available incentives. To find out how a Solar4America system can reduce your electric bill, click here.
