How it works:


  1. Your Solar PV panels generate electricity during daylight hours. This DC electricity is sent down a cable to an inverter, converted to AC and used to power your home and appliances.
  2. If the electricity is not required, the inverter sends it to the battery, charging it for later use. Once the battery is fully charged, the excess electricity is sent out to the national grid.
  3. At times when your panels are not generating (such as night time), the electricity stored in the battery is used to power your home and appliances.
  4. You can monitor all system activity from anywhere using the Home Energy Management System
