Energy independence: By powering your home with solar energy you reduce your reliance on big energy companies, which makes you immune to the ever-growing energy prices.

How Does Solar PV (SPV) Work?
Absorption of sunlight: When sunlight hits the thin layer of semiconductive material, it triggers the release of electrons from silicon atoms. The negatively charged electrons are then attracted to the positively charged side of the cell.
Conversion from DC to AC: The electricity absorbed from sunlight is DC (direct current) using an inverter. This is converted into AC (alternating current), which is the type of electricity used to power appliances within your home.
Distribution: The panels themselves are not connected directly to the appliances within your home. The electricity that is generated is sent to an electric panel which distributes the energy to the appliances in your home.
Net metering: Your electric meter then records the amount of electricity that your home is using and any excess electricity that is generated is credited to your account through a process called net metering.
