HOW DOES SOLAR ELECTRICITY WORK?

/HOW DOES SOLAR ELECTRICITY WORK?

Norwich Solar Technologies is a leading provider of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems.  Using only high quality, industry proven technology and components, we convert the sun’s energy into clean, reliable electricity.  But how does it really work?

When Sunlight (solar irradiance) hit’s the silicon panels, the sunlight particles (photons) dislodge the electrons from the atoms in the silicon cells. This creates a flow of direct current (DC) electricity.  This DC power is harnessed and run into an inverter, which, very efficiently converts it to alternating current (AC) electricity.  The AC power feeds directly into your business’s electrical panel.  When your solar array is creating more power than your business is using at any given time, your utility meter will run in reverse as the excess power is sent back to the utility grid. This is called Net-Metering and it requires no batteries!
