There are three main components of a Solar system. The panels, inverters, and batteries.
Solar cells, or a photovoltaic (PV) cell is a non mechanical devise that converts sunlight directly into electricity.
A home battery is an in-home energy storage unit that has the ability to store energy produced from power generated from renewable sources like solar and wind.
Microinverters turn direct current (DC) generated by your solar panels, into alternating current (AC) which can be used by your home
