How Solar Panels Work – The Basics


Have you ever wondered how Solar Panels work? How does a panel with no moving parts produce electricity, and how is it usable in your home?

In this short video, Babe Kilgore, President of Nerd Power, explains the basics of a solar panel outside of a customers home.

The sun shines on the solar panels and the panels absorb the energy, creating direct current (DC) electricity. The electricity is fed into what is called a solar inverter. This converts the current into alternating current (AC) electricity. The AC current is then used to power the appliances in your home.

We take a more holistic approach to solar energy by updating your home or business with the latest energy reducing technologies, then addressing the remaining energy your home or business requires with renewable energy solutions, like solar.

Nerd Power has pioneered a unique approach to solar energy. We call it "Reduction Before Production". Simply put, we work to reduce the energy your home or business uses/wastes by installing smart technologies, before considering clean energy production solutions like PV solar panels. This allows for a more cost effective energy system and a better long term investment for our customers.
