How Does Solar Work?

Would you like to know how solar works? Outback Solar is here to shed light on this topic and break down the process in easy-to-understand way so you can see why solar it's a smart choice for your home or business.

What is Solar Power?

Solar power is all about turning sunlight into electricity. We use solar panels to do this job. These panels soak up sunlight and turn it into usable electricity for your home or business. The more solar panels you have, the more electricity you can generate, and the less you will have to buy from your Electricity Retailer. 

How Does Solar Power Work?

  1. Solar Panels: These sit on your roof or on a ground-mounted system, soaking up sunlight. Inside these solar panels, there are tiny parts called semiconductors. When sunlight hits them, they start producing electricity.

  2. Inverter: The electricity made by solar panels is a special type called direct current (DC). But most things in our homes and businesses use a different type called alternating current (AC). That’s where the inverter comes in. It changes the DC electricity into AC, so we can use it to power up our appliances.

  3. Net-Metering: Sometimes, your solar panels produce more electricity than your home or business needs. That surplus electricity can go back into the network grid, helping out your community. And you might even get credits or money for it in the form of a feed-in-tariff!

Why Install Solar Power?

  • Saves Money: When you use solar power, you can save money on your electricity bills and take advantage of government incentives and rebates you may be eligible for. With all this, installing solar power is a smart investment.
  • Good for the Environment: Solar power helps fight climate change and keeps our air clean. By using it, you’re making a positive impact on our planet.

  • Energy Independence: With solar power, you’re not reliant on big energy retailers. You generate your own electricity harnessed from the sun, giving you more control over your energy usage and costs.
