How Solar Works

How Sunshine becomes Solar Energy

Our solar panels capture energy from the sun and channel it to an inverter, where it’s converted to electricity to power your home. Extra energy is stored in a battery so you can use it at night.

How Sunlight turns into Electricity

1. Photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity.

2. The inverter converts DC into alternating current (AC) electricity.

3. The electrical panel sends power to your lights and appliances.

4. The battery takes any excess energy and stores it for use at night.

 
 

Rising Sun’s very own Mitch Sanders explains, how solar works in a short clip below of a Self Sustaining Home on Maui, Hawaii.

Step by Step

1. Sun shines on panels

Photovoltaic (PV) cells convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity.

2. Transform it

The inverter converts DC into alternating current (AC) electricity.

3. Power your home

The electrical panel sends power to your lights and appliances.

4. Charge your battery

The battery takes any excess energy and stores it for use at night.
