How does solar energy work step by step?

Here are some steps: 

  1.  Sunlight activates the panels. A rack-and-panel solar system. 
  2. The cells produce electrical current. A silicon ingot and wafer. 
  3. The electrical energy is converted. 
  4. The converted electricity powers your home. 
  5. A net meter measures usage.

Hi @smithbright ,

 

Sure but i dont think it will suffice in a tropical country like Malaysia, maybe for backup we can use solar.

The circuitry of solar panels is much more complicated. After all, good solar panels can accumulate electricity and use it when needed.
