How Solar Energy Systems Work

1. Solar Panels

Your panels produce energy from sunlight.

2. Appliances

Running appliances use energy from your system.

3. Inverter

Converts solar energy from Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) which powers your home.

4. Main Service Panel on Meter

The power from both your solar system and the utility meet in your Main service panel. If you produce more than your use, power goes back into the grid!

5. The Grid

Any excess solar energy you produce goes back to the grid when the sun isn’t shining. You draw power from your utility

Balance Of System

Balance of System is a general term used to describe the electrical equipment installed at ground level. This includes inverters, disconnects, AC combiner/load centers, monitoring equipment, and any associated wireways.

Why is the Balance of System equipment important?

The equipment that composes the Balance of System is where the rubber meets the road for a PV system. It includes the disconnects needed to allow for safe operation and servicing, the metering devices necessary to insure the system is performing as promised, and the inverter, which changes the Direct Current (DC) power from the array to the Alternating Current (AC) power that your home or business uses. It will always be well labeled. There may be parts of the equipment that can be painted, so ask your installers. Inverters can NEVER be painted.
