Racking System Structure→ This framework is used to provide support for the solar panels.
Solar Panel Placement→ The solar panels are laid atop the racking system structure.
Inverter (s)→ An inverter is connected to the PV solar system. This inverter converts the DC power that is generated from the sun’s rays into Alternating Current (AC); which fuels the entirety of the house.
Net Meter→ A net meter is installed. This meter measures the amount of energy produced from the solar panels. If the system produces more power than what is used, it accumulates credits with the utility company. These credits can help on future bills when the system doesn’t produce as much energy as needed. In some cases, the utility company may require a secondary meter to be installed.
AC Disconnect→ This is the kill switch between the service panel and the solar PV system. If, for any reason, the connection between the service panel and solar system needs to be turned off it can be with this.
Circuit Breaker→ AC power travels from the inverter to the electrical service panel, also known as a breaker box; making the power ready to use in the home.
