How Solar Power Works
STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY DOESN'T HAVE TO BE COMPLICATED
We know Verengo makes it easy to go Solar – but how exactly does Solar energy work?
Here’s an overview of how a typical Verengo system processes sunlight into renewable energy for your home.
1. It Starts with Solar Panels
Solar panels utilize the photovoltaic effect, which creates electricity from incident sunlight. Solar panels are only as useful as the sunlight they get, so poor orientation or bad weather will reduce their output
2. Inverters Prime the Power
Power inverters take solar power from its initial form – direct current (DC) electricity – from the Solar Panels, and convert it to the usable alternating current (AC) that runs in your home and on the utility grid.
In order to accurately track your solar energy production and usage, energy is transferred through a production meter. This can be used by a finance company to confirm how much energy the system is producing.
With Net-Metering, renewable energy created during the day that is not used by the home is sent to the grid – turning back the utility meter and earning the system owner power credit, which can be used even if the system isn’t producing. You end up only paying the difference, or Net, of energy in versus energy out
4. Enjoy Clean Energy
