How Does Solar Energy Work?
Solar energy is produced by utilizing the biggest power source on our planet: The Sun!
Solar technologies harness this power to generate electricity for a variety of uses, including lighting, use for appliances at home, heating, and cooling, or even just creating a comfortable environment at your home or office. Even though this technology goes back to the Albert Einstein era, it can be explained in four brief steps.
A. Radiation coming from the sun hits the solar panels, which produces energy in the form of direct current.
B. An inverter converts the direct current into an alternating current (This is what your appliances use).
C. Energy can be used in your residence or office to power all your appliances, lights, and so on.
D. When there’s energy excess, electricity flows to the grid which is then bought by energy providers. This is how you can go from saving money to making money.
