Houses powered with solar panels help create clean, renewable energy!
The sun is going to excite the electrons in the solar panels producing DC Direct Current electricity.
An inverter is used to invert the electricity from DC Direct Current electricity to a form your home can use AC Alternating Current electricity.
The Sunrun Solar Meter will measure exactly how much electricity your solar system is creating in real-time and you will be able to view it from our app on your smartphone or computer.
The Solar electricity will pass through to your homes electrical service panel and power your home with clean renewable solar energy. When you are producing more power than you are consuming it will pass through your utility companies Net Meter and will be stored on the utility companies grid.
When you go solar your utility company will change out your Standard Meter for a Net Meter which keeps track of how much excess power you create and send back to the grid as well as how much electricity you use from the utility company.
