How Rooftop Solar Works
A New Kind of Bright. To gain and retain energy, the large solar panels on your roof will capture the sun’s rays before converting them into direct-current (DC) electricity.
Usable Energy. Next, an onsite inverter converts the direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) that is usable in your home or business.
Versatile Storage. With batteries, you can store captured AC for use if the power grid is down, or you can sell it to your local energy provider under Ohio’s net metering program.
Secure Energy Onsite. Your inverter integrates your home or business with the local electrical grid, meaning you always have a backup on rainy days.
