How Does Solar Work for Commercial and Industrial Businesses?


Solar Array

Your business’ solar panels use the sun’s energy to produce direct current (DC) electricity


Inverter & AC Panel

The inverter converts the DC electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity and sends it to your standard AC electrical panel.


Utility Meter

Solar electricity used by your business is electricity you do not purchase from the utility grid.


Electric Grid

Your solar system works in coordination with the utility grid. Any demand that is not met by your solar array is supplied by the grid. Any excess solar electricity that is not used at your facility will be sent to the grid.



Track your system’s production using an online monitoring portal which is linked directly from your inverter.
