Solar energy takes advantages of the sun ray to generate heat or electricity. It is a renewable resource and unique for its ability to generate energy in a quiet, clean, and consistent manner. Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity. The charge controller charges the battery bank and also regulates the amount of charge to avoid over/under charging of the batteries. The inverter converts DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity needed to run your appliances assembled in your electrical panel. The electrical panel sends power to your lights and other appliances.
