How Solar Works

Generating electricity using a rooftop solar system is easy, thanks to the abundant Hawaiian sun. Solar panels have no moving parts, make no noise, are cleaner for our environment, and require little maintenance over their decades-long lifespan. The energy flows directly from your roof to your home or business, or back to the utility. Best of all, you’ll save money.

So how does solar energy work? Simply put, when sunlight hits your solar modules, direct current, or DC electricity, is generated. A RevoluSun-installed device called an inverter converts DC electricity to alternating current, or AC electricity, the same type delivered to you by your electric company.
