How Does a Solar Panel System Work?

Solar power is a clean, efficient and environmentally conscious form of renewable energy that can provide power to your home, all year round. By installing photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, you will be able to convert sunlight into energy for your home.

Solar panels capture the energy from the sun, and then convert the DC (Direct Current) electricity from the panels into AC (Alternating Current) electricity to use in your home. Once the electricity is converted, it supplies power to your home's electrical panel.


Delivery of electricity from your local utility will continue uninterrupted, day and night. Only, during the day, you will be producing your own electricity. And, if your solar panels produce more power than you consume, any excess power is fed back into the local utility grid, supplying clean electricity to your community and potentially making you eligible to receive an incentive from the local utility.

For any questions you may have regarding the billing of your solar panels, call 1-888-BGE-HOME.
