Residential Solar Panels

Residential solar panels are the most recognized part of the solar power system. Each solar panel is comprised of a series of photovoltaic (PV) cells that produce an electrical voltage. When a series of residential solar panels are wired together, enough power can be generated to decrease the amount of power you need to purchase from your utility company.

The basic components of residential solar panel systems are:

  • Individual solar panels or modules - when wired together the modules make up a solar array
  • Inverter – changes direct current produced from the solar array to alternating current to be used in your home
  • Net meter – is the device that reduces the amount of electricity coming into your home from the utility company when the residential solar panels are producing energy
