Our breakdown of how Solar PV works:

  1. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the sun’s light energy (photons) into direct current (DC) electricity.
  2. The current flows into an inverter which is used to convert the DC electricity into usable 240v alternating current (AC) electricity.
  3. The AC electricity is fed through a generation meter into your distribution board to supply power to your home or business. This reduces your need to buy-in electricity from your energy supplier during the day*.
  4. Any surplus electricity (ie that is not used) is fed back into the National Grid for use by others.

*The imminent availability of battery storage systems will mean you can use your own (PV generated) supply at any time of the day.
