Home Solar System

There are many different components that come together to form what we call a home solar system, but the most famous one is the solar panel itself. Also known as a solar module, this rectangular equipment has a grid-like pattern of solar cells that absorb power from the sun, creating an electric charge.

In a conventional solar system, solar panels send direct current (DC) to an inverter that changes the power to alternating current (AC) to match the electricity in our homes. This renewable electricity is fed into the home’s circuit breaker panel to create a solar powered home.

Of course there are more components than that to install a home solar system, but we’ll focus on these two. That’s because the solar AC module combines them into a single package.

The solar panel has microinverter technology on the back side that is directly integrated by the manufacturer at the factory. This provides an intriguing option for system owners and installers alike looking for the most streamlined home solar power system available.

For those looking for the easiest and most straightforward solution for home solar system, including off grid solar systems, you may be considering a home solar panel kit to meet your goals. Solar kits are typically box sets that include solar panels, an inverter, wiring, and sometimes energy storage equipment – such as a lithium battery and controller.
