HOW SOLAR ENERGY WORKS

FREEDOM SUN SOLAR MAKES IT EASY TO POWER YOUR HOME WITH SOLAR ENERGY

HOW DOES SOLAR ACTUALLY WORK?

ESTIMATE SAVINGS

It all starts with the sun sending enough energy to the earth every hour to run the whole world for a year. With the right tools, you can get some of it and use it to power your life. Freedom Sun Solar combines all of these things into a simple process that makes going solar almost as easy as turning on a light switch.

With photovoltaics, power inverters, net metering, and photons from the sun, homeowners can get clean, renewable energy. When you switch to solar energy, your utility bills and carbon footprint go down, and your home's value goes up.

Solar energy is easier for most homeowners to use than ever before because the cost of equipment is going down, there are good tax breaks, and it's easier to get a loan. In the energy market of today, rooftop solar panels often pay for themselves in just a few years.

There are steps to going solar: consultation, design, getting permits, installation, inspection, and turning on the power. Each part of putting up solar panels has its own process. When you choose Freedom Sun Solar to go solar, our team works hard to make sure the whole process goes smoothly.

SWITCHING TO SOLAR ENERGY WILL BE THE BEST CALL YOU MAKE ALL YEAR

HOW SOLAR ENERGY WORKS TO POWER YOUR HOME

SOLAR PANELS ALLOW YOU TO OWN YOUR OWN POWER IN AN ECO-FRIENDLY & SUSTAINABLE WAY.
1
SUNLIGHT & SOLAR PANELS

When photons of light from the sun hit the top layer of a solar panel, which has a negative charge, electrons are knocked loose. In a photovoltaic cell, these free electrons are pulled into an electric field between the negatively charged top layer and the positively charged semiconducting silicon. This creates a flow of Direct Current (DC) electricity.

2
POWER INVERTERS

Since most home appliances run on AC power, the DC current from solar panels needs to be changed before it can be added to a home's power supply. So, a power inverter is wired in to make that change and act as a bridge between a solar array and a home's main electrical panel.

3
ELECTRICAL PANELS

To add solar energy that has been turned into AC current to a home's power supply, new wiring and circuit breakers are put in the main electrical panel. After the new solar power supply is wired in, the electrical panel sends the power to the home's other circuits.

4
YOUR POWER METER

The easiest way to store solar energy is to rewire your home's power meter so it can track electricity going both into and out of the house. It's called "net metering," and it lets utility companies keep track of how much power their customers add to the grid. They can then credit their account for the power they produce or bill them fairly for the power they take out.

5
THE POWER GRID

Solar panels make the most electricity in the middle of the day, when people don't need as much electricity. Most homeowners should stay connected to the power grid so they can use it to store extra solar power during the day and get power when they need it at night when their solar panels aren't working.
