How a solar system works

Hover over the image below for the key features of a solar system

Solar panels

Solar panels are usually mounted on the roof. Sunlight hits solar cells, where its energy is converted into DC electrical energy.


The inverter converts solar generated DC electricity into AC that can be used in the household. The inverter also monitors your solar system to ensure it performs as its best.


Energy flows through your home's switchboard and is distributed to your appliances accordingly.


The energy your solar system produces will always be used first. If you produce more than you need, surplus is sold back to the grid automatically.

Energy storage

A solar system can be expanded with a battery. Batteries store surplus energy to be used at night or through power cuts.


Your solar system can come with on line monitoring software so you can use an app or web to monitor your production and usage in real-time.
