Electricity from Solar Energy - How it Works - Markey Electric and Solar

How it Works

Electricity from solar energy begins with the sun’s powerful rays that transfer directly onto the solar panels. Solar panels are usually installed on your roof where maximum sun exposure is received. From here, the panels capture the sun’s energy and convert it into DC power (Direct Current). DC power is then converted into AC power (Alternating Current) which is what powers all of the appliances in your home like your washing machine and microwave. Your home’s electronic devices will first use solar power and any excess energy that is left over is fed back to your meter and grid. Therefore, in the evening or on a cloudy day, your home is still connected to the electrical grid and you’ll have access to power at all times.

Easy Installation and Simple Maintenance

Installing solar panels is fairly straightforward and it only takes about a day. Routine maintenance is only required about once every two years to ensure that you are getting the most out of your system.
