How Solar Works

A Solar Electric system, also called a Photovoltaic (PV) System, converts energy from the sun directly into electricity. Solar electric systems use the most abundant energy source on the planet, solar radiation, to generate electricity. PV panels are the collector of the system and are made up of individual PV cells typically made up of the semiconductor material silicon. When sunlight strikes a PV cell, an electron is dislodged. These loose electrons are gathered by wires attached to the cell, and form an electrical current. 
PV panels generate direct current (DC). Since most household appliances run on alternating current (AC), an inverter is usually required to convert DC to AC power.

Solar Electrical systems allow you to produce electricity without, noise, pollution, radiation or maintenance.
