A step-by-step guide on how solar works and what to consider before getting solar.

1. Solar Panels

Solar panels absorb sunlight and harnesses free solar energy.

2. Solar Inverter

4. Meter

Excess solar power generated will flow into the grid through the meter. It also calculates how much excess you send back to the grid.

5. Grid Network

Excess solar energy generated will be sent back to the grid. This allows you to get feed-in tariff which will be credited onto your electricity bill. Your solar power system will also consume power from the grid if it does not produce enough.
