How Does Residential Solar Power Work?
When it comes to incorporating solar energy, many property owners simply don’t know where to start. EcoHome can not only provide a preliminary home visit and consultation to help determine whether your home can accommodate solar panels, but we can also help homeowners understand just how residential solar installation works.
Using photovoltaic roof panels, a solar power system captures and converts direct sunlight into energy for your home. Before installation work begins, we can provide 3D modeling to not only demonstrate how the panels will integrate with your roof system, but we can also provide an estimated cost savings as a result of using solar energy.
Four Main Elements of a Solar Home System
Here are the four primary elements — two of which are already in place in all homes — of most solar home systems
Solar panels, which convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity (similar to what comes out of batteries).
Inverters or microinverters, which convert the DC electricity into the alternating current (AC) electricity used by the grid and distributed in your home.
A main breaker panel (also known as a fuse box), which is where your solar power system connects to your home's electricity system.
The utility meter, which measures the net amount of energy consumption from the grid.
