How your solar system will work

Solar power systems are made up of panels, an inverter and battery storage.

Electricity is generated when the sun’s energy travels via your solar panels on your roof, to an inverter. During the day, solar panels on your roof capture photons from sunlight. This then sent to the inverter which converts it into electricity your home can use. If your home doesn’t use all the power generated, it can be sent back into the electricity grid - or can be stored in a battery system for use at other times.

With the right system you could save up to 80% off your electricity bill.
