A photovoltaic grid connect system consists of solar panels that absorb energy from the sun, which is then converted to power for your home.

The solar panels absorb the photon particles from the sun: this process has a photoelectric effect and causes the flow of free electrons producing electricity.

The panels are connected to an inverter, which changes the direct current (DC) from the solar panels to 240 volt alternating current (AC) used to power our homes.

The main switchboard for the house directs power from the grid or solar panels to where it is needed in the house.

A kilo-watt hour (kWh) metre measures the power that is generated and exported by the grid connect system.

Any excess power generated by the solar system, which is not needed in the house, is then exported to the electricity grid and sold back to your electricity supplier.

A grid connect solar power system can significantly reduce your carbon footprint, greatly reduce your power bill, and add value to your home.
