A solar inverter is a vital component in the solar electric power system, and understanding how it works can help you choose what products are best for your home or business.
What is a solar inverter?
The inverter is the brains of your solar power electric system, boosting your systems efficiency and overall energy production. This component is important because it allows you to gain full energy potential from your system.
How does it work?
A solar inverter promotes a more efficient solar electric power system. Solar panels take the energy from the sun and generate a direct current, or “DC.” Our appliances often run off of alternating currents, or “AC.” The job of the solar inverter is to transform the DC into AC, which can then be used in the home or business. The AC energy is also more easily transferred to the power grid, which allows you to get the most out of the energy you generate from the sun.
