Sunlight enters the Solar Panels, generating a flow of electricity.
The Power Inverter converts direct current (DC) to standard grid alternating current (AC).
The Bi-directional Meter tracks how much energy is produced compared to the amount of energy that is consumed.
The extra Clean Energy will be sent to the Utility Grid in a process called Net Metering.
Allows your excess electricity that flows back to the grid to serve nearby neighbors while your meter essentially runs backwards. You can then gain credits and earn money by selling that electricity back to the grid.
