What Is The Process Of Solar Power?

First of all when the sun is shinning the picture of the photovoltaic panels of a solar PV structure catch sunlight and generates the light to it's direct current electricity. Secondly, the solar PV system uses an inverter, then it converts this electricity into 240V which is what we use in our homes. Then, under a net feed-in system this electricity, next gets divided for use in your house. Finally, below a gross feed-in system all the electricity produced is brought into the electricity grid through your electricity meter.
