How Solar Energy Works

When considering making the switch to a greener energy option like solar, there’s no question why Cape Cod homeowners like you are interested in knowing the answer to an important question: how does solar energy work? Here’s your answer:

  • Photovoltaic (PV) panelsare installed on your property. These can be placed on your roof or mounted on the ground or on a pole.
  • The PV panelscapture natural light—whether sunny or cloudy—which creates direct current electricity.
  • An inverter takes this direct current electricity and transforms it into alternating current electricity; in this form, it is sent to your electrical panel to power lights and appliances as other electricity sources would.
  • You can track your energy consumption and the performance of your solar power system with an off-site performance monitoring system.
  • Enjoy the savings! According to, the average homeowner saves over $1,500 a year on electricityby installing solar panels on their roof.
