How Solar Power Systems work??
Solar power systems are really fantastic! The main part of any Solar Power Systems are the solar panels that are usually installed on your roof. The solar panels use the UV rays from the sun to generate electricity. Solar panels work best when they are in direct sunlight however they do still produce electricity on cloudy and overcast days.
Solar panels in Solar power systems produce Direct Current (DC) power, but to be able to be used for most household appliances the power needs to be converted to Alternating Current (AC). The inverter converts the DC power into AC power so that it can be used in your home.
When your solar power system is making more power than you use, the surplus electricity is generally sold back into the power grid so that it can be used by someone else. Your electricity retailer will credit you for this on your electricity bill.
