1. When the sun is out its rays shine on the solar panels on your home and their power is converted to direct current (DC) electricity.
2. The power runs to a converter where it is changed from DC to AC (alternating current), the form of electricity used in homes today.
3. Next, the power goes to your electric meter where the net amount of energy your system is generating is recorded.
4. Then it into your home where it runs your appliances, charges your phone, etc..
