How Does Solar Power Work


When the sun is shining, solar panels convert sunlight into DC (direct current) electricity. The solar inverter converts this electricity into AC (alternating current) power for use in your home. Your home appliances (fridge, dishwasher, pool pumps etc.) use this power instead of drawing power from the electricity grid.

Solar doesn’t generate electricity all the time, but it does generate electricity when it is needed most. This includes during the daytime. You can also capture this daytime solar electricity in a battery backup unit for nighttime use.

Australia is one of the sunniest countries in the world and is the perfect place for the sun to be put to work.

An solar inverter takes the DC electricity from the solar panels (Array) and uses that to create AC electricity that your home needs. Inverters are like the brains of the system.
