How do solar panels work?
Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic cells that generate and convert sunlight into a direct current (DC) which passes through your home to an inverter. Next, the inverter transmutes the direct current into an alternative current (AC) which travels through the electrical panel that powers the electricity in your home.
Excess electricity not used, will be transmitted to the electrical grid. The grid is used to supply the electricity needed when your panels are not producing enough energy to power your home. For example, when it gets dark.
Solar Panel Maintenance
The average solar panel lifespan should last around 25-30 years. However it is important to keep your panels maintained and cleaned throughout their lifespan in order to generate the most sun power.
