The Process by Which Solar Energy Becomes Electricity

More and more of you are opting for self-consumption in France. Residential Solar system in Pakistan The installation of solar panels connected to your electricity network. Allows you to produce green energy and reduce your electricity bills.

Photovoltaic Cells

Doping makes it possible to create an imbalance of electrons between the two layers. One will be in deficit and the other in surplus. The excess electrons will then be forced to circulate between the 2 layers to “find a place”.

When photons (solar energy) pass through the cell, they cause the movement of electrons. From both the n and p layers. The n and p electrons then leave their respective zone and navigate between the zones:  this agitation of electrons is the very definition of electricity. The addition of the reactions of all the cells of the solar panel therefore, constitutes the gross electricity supplied by the panel.

The Circulation Of Solar Electricity

The energy produced by the panels then passes through a DC (direct current) cable. Which quickly transports it to its next stop  the micro-inverter.

The micro-inverter detects the energy it receives and is responsible for converting this. So-called “direct” raw current (unsuitable for consumption) into so-called “alternating” current. Which is usable and compatible with the domestic electrical network. The alternating current produced by the micro-inverter then joins the current.

Arrival At Your Home Appliances

At the same time, your domestic appliances in operation will automatically. Be powered by the energy produced by your solar kit.

This electricity “takes over” electricity from the ENEDIS network because the current. Always follows the shortest path:  you benefit from free and renewable energy.

If the production of tolar panels is greater than the electricity demand of the appliances, the green energy produced feeds your consumption.

On the other side, the surplus is reinjected into the network, free of charge or for resale to the desired energy supplier.

Conversely, if the production of photovoltaic panels is lower than the demand for the devices, the electrical network of your energy supplier takes over to fill this gap. This will especially be the case at night, when the panels are not producing.

How Do My Solar Panels Produce Electricity?

A solar panel can produce electricity from the sun’s radiation through a chemical reaction. 

What Happens If I Use Less Electricity Than My Solar Panels Produce?

In this case, you have several solutions. The first is to store your surplus in a storage battery. The second is to inject this surplus free of charge into the distribution network and the third is to sell this surplus to an electricity supplier such as EDF.
