When sunlight hits a solar panel, the cells absorb photons from the sun and convert them into electrons, which flow through the cell as electrical current. That current then flows from the cells to the inverters.
Inverters take the direct-current (DC) electricity produced by the solar cells and convert it into alternating-current (AC) electricity. AC and DC essentially represent two ways in which electricity moves from place to place.
Most of the electrical functions in an American home or business require AC power. Some require DC but you generally don’t need to worry about those. For example, your computer
