IN A NUTSHELL
At Captain Solar we have faith in the power of the sun, and we want all Australians to feel the same, which starts with understanding. Here is a simplified version of how solar energy works and why you should take advantage of it.
Photovoltaic (PV or Solar Panels) modules generate Direct Current (DC) power from the sun.
An Inverter then converts DC power into 240V Alternating Current (AC) power for use at your property.
The building uses the solar electricity generated, any excess power is fed back into the grid. Meaning you are using the power of the sun to run your appliances.
A Bi-directional meter (Net Meter) then measures electricity fed back to the grid for which you would receive credits from your electricity retailer.
