Solar panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells. A solar cell is a crystal, and the bonds are made of electrons that are shared between all of the atoms of the crystal. When light gets absorbed by the cell, electrons can move around the crystal freely, creating a current and converting sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
A solar inverter takes the DC electricity from the solar panels and uses that to create AC electricity. The introduction of micro-inverters is one of the biggest technology shifts in the solar industry. Micro-inverters optimize for each individual solar panel, not for an entire solar system, as central inverts do.
AC electricity is sent from the solar inverter to your electrical service panel to power your lights, appliances and other electrical household amenities with the generated solar energy. Your home runs on the normal power grid in the evening and night when power demands and electricity costs are lower.
