Solar energy is fundamentally simple. Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels produce electric current when exposed to sunlight. Inverters convert the direct current (DC) from the panels to the alternating current (AC) that your building uses. That AC current is then routed to the building’s main electrical panel, making it available to be used just like energy from the grid.
Blue Sky Solar specializes in grid-interactive systems that supplement energy from the grid rather than replace grid electricity entirely. This ensures that you can take full advantage of solar energy production during the daylight hours and have additional electricity available from the grid as needed. Exactly how much grid electricity your PV system will offset depends on the size of the system, how much energy you use, and when you use it.
