Solar photovoltaic (PV) is a technology that has been around since the 70’s and converts the sun’s rays into usable electricity for your home or business. You save money by generating your own electricity from the sun.

Large solar panels are put onto your roof at home or at your business that takes the sun’s rays and converts them into direct-current (DC) electricity.
These panels connect up with an inverter that converts the direct current (DC) into usable alternating current (AC), just like the AC adaptors we use to charge our cell phones, TVs or computers, which we can use to power your home or business.
When you add batteries for energy storage, you will be able to have power even when the grid is down. Alternatively, feed your stored electricity back into the grid to sell to your utility by a process called Net Metering or becoming a Virtual Power Plant (VPP).
The solar system’s inverter connects to your electrical network at your home or business and integrates with your utility’s grid. You get the best of both worlds - electricity from your solar system when the sun is shining and from the grid when you need it, which means you always have electricity.
As the market has grown, a variety of different solar technologies have emerged.
