How does Solar Energy work?  

The sun provides an endless stream of clean energy. When the sun shines on the solar panels on your roof, Direct Current (DC) electricity is created.  DC travels to the system inverter where it is changed from DC to AC (Alternating Current) which is the kind of current that’s needed for your home. This AC travels to the circuit breaker panel (also known as the fuse box) in your home and powers all of your appliances – anything that’s plugged in.  

 If your solar panels are generating more electricity than you’re using, then the extra energy is pumped to the grid and made available to other users.   

When this happens you will be paid a feed-in tariff. To view Enova’s Solar Plans, click here
