How solar works
The sun is the source of life on earth.
1. Solar Panels
Photovoltaic solar panels absorb sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity. A photovoltaic (PV) module is a packaged, connected assembly of typically 6×10 photovoltaic solar cells. Photovoltaic modules constitute the photovoltaic array of a photovoltaic system that generates and supplies solar electricity in commercial and residential applications.
2. Solar inverters
A solar inverter then converts DC into AC (Alternate Current) – which then powers your home in real time.
A solar inverter or PV inverter, is a type of electrical converter which converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panel into a utility frequency alternating current (AC) that can be fed into a commercial electrical grid or used by a local, off-grid electrical network. It is a critical balance of system (BOS)–component in a photovoltaic system, allowing the use of ordinary AC-powered equipment.ons.
3. Solar Battery
If you install a solar battery, excess energy is stored here (rather than pushing out to the grid).
Solar batteries work by converting the DC energy being produced by your solar panels and storing it as AC power for later use. In some cases, solar batteries have their own inverter and offer integrated energy conversion. The higher your battery’s capacity, the more solar energy it can store.ns.
4. Digital Meter
Digital meters, sometimes called “smart meters”, are devices that automatically record electricity use, then electronically report that information to the electricity retailer at regular intervals. These meters provide secure data that can show peak usage and isolate outages.
5. Power Grid
This energy is measured and calculated (feed-in tariff) to credit your electricity account. An electrical grid, or electric grid, is an interconnected network for delivering electricity from producers to consumers. It consists of generating stations that produce electrical power, and high voltage transmission lines that carry power from distant sources to the end user.

Now it’s possible to harness the sun’s incredible power by using b.solar’s solar technology to convert sunlight into electricity to power homes.
In Australia, one in seven households have solar power installed. This makes us the world’s leading nation in terms of household solar panel installations. By opting to install a battery alongside b.solar’s solar solutions, Australians can further benefit by storing their excess electricity and use it during the times when the sun isn’t shining.
Solar power works because the solar panels we install on your roof absorb sunlight (photons), before sending it to a high quality inverter, which converts it to AC power, which in turn powers your home.
