How does solar work?

Our solar panels, batteries and inverters work together to generate and store energy, allowing you to keep your home online, no matter the time of day.

Solar panels

The panels absorb the energy from the sun through PV cells before turning it into an electrical current that powers your home.

Solar Inverter

You can store this energy through your inverter which sends it to your solar battery.

Solar Battery

Once stored, you can choose when you’d like to use this energy, often during off-peak hours or darker days. You’ll also have the option to sell it back to the grid.
