Solar Panels are devices that convert light into raw electricity. Comprised of silicon and glass, a Solar panel will convert the suns ray into raw electricity when it hits the silicon.
A number of new facilities have been built since 2000. Recently the industry is investing in wind generation and today wind represents 9% of the market installed capacity.
Once the raw energy is captured direct current (DC) from the Solar Panels. It is then converted with a power inverter which takes the DC supply and converts it into alternating current (AC).
The standard home uses this AC supply to run your light, toaster and alarm clock.
The energy you are producing flows to a meter. Durning times when your supply is greater then demand the excess is sent out the the grid. When your demand is greater then your supply energy comes back from the grid. A process which is called metering.
Your home is now running using the sun by creating your own solar power. Helping the environment and save you money.
