How Residential Solar Works
EcoHome Expert, Inc. installs photovoltaic home solar systems in the Chicago area. These systems convert sunlight into electrical energy you can use in your home. There are four main elements of each home solar system, two of which are already in your house:
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 (sometimes called by its older name, the “fuse box”), which is where your solar system connects to your home’s electricity system.
The utility meter, which measures the net amount of energy consumption from the grid.
