How does solar power work?

Sunlight hits the high performing Sunpower solar panels on your roof and converts the sun’s energy into Direct Current (DC) electricity which is sent to an inverter.

The Inverter converts Direct Current (DC) electricity into usable Alternating Current (AC) electricity. * Each Sunpower solar panel has its own inverter (behind each panel)to maximum efficiency.

The energy produced by the solar panels is used by your home real-time. When your solar panels produce more electricity than is needed during peak sun hours, then the excess electricity is automatically sent back to the grid (utility company) and your meter actually spins backwards, building you a bank of credits at the utility company.

Infinity Solar designs your system to suit your energy needs and Sunpower guarantees your system production at a low fixed cost.
