What is a Solar Power Inverter?
A solar power inverter is just as essential as solar panels when it comes to utility and residential solar-powered systems. Solar power inverters change the direct current (DC) of the solar panels into alternating current (AC).
What Do Solar Power Inverters Do?
DC is the solar power that flows in one direction in the circuit and it helps provide current when there isn’t any electricity. The DC is used for smaller gadgets like tablets and phones.. AC, on the other hand, is the power that moves back and forth inside the circuit and powers large household appliances.
How do Solar Power Inverters Work?
When the sun hits the solar panels, electrons within the photovoltaic cells start to move around and this produces the DC solar electricity. The circuits within the photovoltaic cells collect the solar energy, which then send it to the power inverters to convert to AC energy.
Once converted, solar electricity can power your home.
