How Does Solar Energy Actually Work?

Solar panels house groups of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which turn the sun’s UV rays directly into electricity. Several panels together are called a solar array.

The electricity your solar panels generate is DC, not the AC electricity needed by all the energy-consumers at your nonprofit, like computers, printers, and heating or air conditioning.

So you’ll install an inverter to convert the DC electricity into usable AC electricity.

Your solar-generated electricity will flow to your electrical box and then straight into your office, building, warehouse, etc.

Powering your devices and everything else will work exactly the same — flip on a switch or plug something in and no one will ever never know the difference
