How Residential Solar Works
Your Certasun solar energy system converts sunlight into electrical energy you can use in your home. There are four main elements of each home solar system, two of which are already in your house:
2 Inverters or microinverters, which convert the DC electricity into the alternating current (AC) electricity used by the grid and distributed in your home.
Net Metering for Home Solar
Even with a home solar system, you will still want to be connected to the grid so that you can draw power at night when the panels don’t produce energy. Conversely, there will be times when your panels produce more energy than you are consuming. The excess will flow into the grid and be used by other customers.
All utilities in our service territory offer something called “net metering“, which simply means they will credit you for any energy you send back to them. Effectively, you get charged only for your net energy consumption.
