A solar panel system consists of the following three fundamental portions that are as follows.
1. Solar Panels
2. Solar Inverter
3. Solar Battery
4. Solar Gateway
As the sun rises, solar panels can capture the light energy hitting its surface and convert it into electric energy. If a solar inverter is connected, then the solar inverter can convert electricity to usable green energy. You can then use it to power your home. For example, you can power the light bulbs and the appliances in your home with the power of the sun.
After the inverter converts the power, the solar battery stores the energy, and the solar gateway captures the information so that you can monitor your energy production.
How Solar Panel Systems Power Your Home at Night
What happens to the energy that you don't use and is excess?
Based on the intensity of the sun shining in the morning, the solar for home system will generate electricity through the solar panels. If your system makes more electricity than you can consume, then your utility meter will record it and reflect it. Some meters will reach a standstill, and some may spin backwards. When you use solar energy, the meter will show zero usage at that moment.
Suppose it is a sunny day and you produce more power than you require. In that case, the excess energy will flow backwards toward the electric meter and other businesses or houses without residential solar panels to power them as well. Hence, you can power your home and other buildings with your solar panel system too.
