Converting solar energy via sunlight directly to electricity is done using solar cells.

Every day, light hits your roof’s solar panels with photons (particles of sunlight).

The solar panel converts those photons into electrons of direct current (“DC”) electricity.

The electrons flow out of the solar panel and into an inverter and other electrical safety devices.

The inverter converts that “DC” power (commonly used in batteries) into alternating current or “AC” power.
