A quick run-down on the basics while you are on lockdown
Your solar system is made up of different components. How do they work and come together to bring you your savings?
It starts with the solar panels
The magic starts when photons coming from the sun hits your solar panels. The more panels installed on your roof, the more energy you can harvest which is directly related savings. These solar panels convert the sun’s energy into electricity that your home can use.
Grid Tie Inverter
The inverter is like the brain or engine of your solar system. The inverter converts the direct current (DC) produced from your solar panels to alternating current (AC) which is required for household use. Yes, that is correct: DC to AC. The power from your inverter to your home’s main panel box is integrated seamlessly and there is no need for manual switching. Your grid tie inverter can provide you real-time information about your solar systems such as the current amount of energy being harvested at any point in time, or even the total amount generated since it was energized, the carbon footprint equivalent in some inverters, how the panels are performing, etc. That is why is it important for your inverter to have WiFi access. Most inverters can provide you detailed reports and statistics about your system. This can be monitored through a website or an app that you can download for free on your mobile devices. That way, at any given moment in time, from anywhere in the world, you can monitor your solar harvest!
So, you consume the power that comes from your solar system, but do you ever wonder what happens to the excess electricity that your system generates?
When your grid tie system generates more power than what your home consumes, the excess or surplus power is exported or sold to the utility company via the Net Metering program. That is why it is important to register for Net Metering if you will be installing a system for your home or a system that is below 100-kilowatt peak (kWp). With net metering, your exported power is paid to you in terms of “credits”. The credits earned can be used to cover your nighttime and weekend usage.
And then the Zero Bill
The combination of an ample-sized solar panel system, net metering, wise usage of power at home – all these will result in fast ROI. Sometimes, it can result in the legendary Zero Bill.
