Solar Panels consist of Photovoltaic Cells (PV).
These panels are installed to harness the radiation from the sun and convert it into electricity. When the suns rays hits the PV cells photons are activated. This process causes the photons to move about and generate electricity.
The electricity generated from the panels is DC (Direct Current)
This can’t be used around the home (but may be stored in batteries, more on that later), so must go through an inverter to be changed to AC (Alternating Current). This is better suited for household applications.
Extra electricity generated
from the solar panels is pumped back into the grid which your house generally runs from. Your house will stay connected to the grid in the event that if you need extra electricity on any particular day you can access it.
