Delivering Positive Energy
Is solar right for my home?
How big a roof do I need?
Will I need to re-roof my house?
What if my roof is shaded?
Do solar systems require maintenance?
Will I have power during a blackout?
Will I generate electricity in bad weather?
Will my property taxes increase?
How solar works.
1) Photovoltaic Panels
Solar panels absorb energy from the sun and converts the sunshine into direct current (DC) power. The DC power travels out of the panels through the micro inverters.
Micro Inverters are tucked under each solar panel. The inverters automatically convert the DC power to alternating current (AC), ready for your home’s use.
3) AC Combiner Box
The AC combiner box consolidates interconnection equipment into a single weather proof enclosure with Enphase Envoy-S integrated for production metering and consumption monitoring. Solar power then back feeds the main service panel.
Enphase Envoy delivers lifetime system monitoring and performance updates to any web connected device.
4) Power for Your Home
The electricity flows from the breaker box to outlets throughout the home.
5) Main Service Panel
The electricity passes through the breaker panel and is distributed to your home’s circuits where the solar energy is consumed.
6) Utility Meter
Any excess solar power after load of house has been met, then goes back into the grid where credit will be given. If applicable by your utility company.
