Learn How Solar Electric Panels Work with RT Solar

Ever wondered how solar electric technology works?

The sun provides light to the Photovoltaic (PV) Panels which generate DC electricity. This power is run through the inverter which converts the DC power to AC power, which we use as the standard house current. The inverter is connected to your main panel and local utility grid.

During the day, while your PV panels are generating electricity, it is fed through the meter to the utility grid and your meter will actually spin backwards, banking credits for you.

When you return home, you use electricity from the utility grid and your meter spins forward utilizing the credit you accrued during the day. By properly sizing your solar system, you can reduce or eliminate your electric bill.
