How does solar Photovoltaic (PV) power function?

Modified on Thu, 23 Nov, 2023 at 2:52 PM

Sunlight (light, not heat) on photovoltaic modules produces direct current (DC) electricity which is converted to alternating current (AC) by a device called an inverter, which is then wired into your main service panel where it feeds your internal power grid.
