In spite of the engineering ingenuity built into a photovoltaic energy system, the process of converting the sun's rays into usable energy is a relatively simple concept.
The solar panels collect the sun's rays and store the sunlight's energy. This energy is then sent from the solar panels to the inverter.
The inverter converts the incoming energy from the solar panels into a form of energy your home can utilize. This usable energy is then sent to your electrical meter.
The electric meter connects your solar system to the utility company which provides your Southern California home with energy. When your solar panels generate more electricity than you are using, the meter will spin backwards to give you credit with the utility company. This credit can be drawn upon at night or on cloudy days.
When you go solar with California Premier Solar Construction, our San Diego solar experts will install a production monitoring system for you to track your production each and every day to make sure you are receiving the power guaranteed to you. Some of our monitoring systems come not only with a web interface, but with an iPhone and iPad application.
