How does a solar PV system work?

Solar panels are made up of many small cells called photovoltaic, or PV cells. PV cells capture the sunlight in the form of direct current (DC) electricity. DC electricity is sent to the inverter to convert it into useable alternating current (AC) electricity. The AC electricity is sent to the electrical panel which then powers your building/house. All of the electricity produced is monitored by a net meter which is capable of running forwards and backwards depending on your energy demands. Surplus energy is returned to the grid.
