How solar power works

We’ve been using technology to generate power from the sun for decades. The technology is now mature, reliable and efficient – and continually getting better.

Having a solar power system installed means you can save money on your electricity bills by generating and using your own power.

The process of converting sunlight into electricity is called photovoltaics. We often refer to solar power as PV – ‘photo’, meaning light, and ‘voltaics’, meaning volts or electricity.

Put simply, solar panels on your roof convert sunlight into electricity and then an inverter turns it into power you can use in your business during the day. If your business doesn’t use all the power generated, it is sent to the electricity grid so the supply isn’t wasted.

No surprises, the more sunlight there is, the more electricity your system generates. This means that usually your system will generate the most power during the ‘peak’ and ‘shoulder’ electricity consumption periods. These are generally times of the day when most businesses use and pay the most for electricity.
