SES solar electric systems consist of solar (photovoltaic) panels mounted to your roof or a customized structure for a ground or pole mount, electrical wiring and an inverter. During daylight hours they generate electricity and send it to your inverter—which converts the electricity produced by the panels (Direct Current, or DC) into the type of power your house uses (Alternating Current, or AC) where it then flows into your home to be used by you and your family for your everyday electrical needs. For homeowners worried about frequent power outages, SES also offers battery backup systems and home generators that can complement your SES solar electric system as part of our energy solutions services.
Once your SES solar electric system is installed at home, the utility provider will read your electrical meter and determine your usage. If the solar system produces more power than you consume, your system pushes the extra power back to the electrical grid. You'll get a credit towards your bill for the power you generated but did not use. This credit system is known as Net-metering
