How commercial Solar works
  1. The sun shines onto the solar panels generating DC (Direct Current) electricity.

  2. The DC electricity is fed into a grid-connected inverter which converts the DC electricity produced by the solar panels into 240V AC electricity, which can then be used by the premises/household.

  3. The 240V AC electricity is used to power the appliances in your home or office or school and when the sun is shining it is the solar generated electricity that you will be using.

  4. When you install a PV Solar system you must have a Bi-directional meter. This meter will be installed by Synergy if your premises/property does not already have one and it will not only measure your electricity consumption or usage but also the amount of energy your PV Solar system produces and exports (does not consume) into the electricity grid.

  5. Your PV Solar system may generate more electricity than you use and this will feed-into the grid. You may also be paid for the surplus electricity your solar system generates by the retailer. This is called a feed-in tariff and the amount paid appears on the electricity bill along with the amount of electricity generated by the PV Solar system.
