How Solar Works



Your Solar Solution

You’ve seen solar panels on homes and buildings around town, and you may have even heard about the many benefits of solar energy. But do you know how solar energy works?

Though it may sound complicated, solar energy works by simple scientific processes that take the energy released by the brightest star in our solar system, capture it in solar panels, and convert it into energy that powers your refrigerator, phone charger, HVAC, and every other electrical appliance or system in your home.

Solar energy systems harness particles of light from the sun’s rays and convert it into clean energy. Sunlight has been powering biological processes on Earth for millions of years. Now, solar energy systems that include solar panels, converters, and backup batteries can capture these particles of light and convert them by the photovoltaic process into alternating currents to power your home with absolutely no pollution.
