Solar Technology

Ever wonder, how does sun light turn into power? Want to learn more about the process of that conversion to usable energy and what happens to the excess energy produced? Here is the TriSMART Solar installation system and explanation of what we do to ensure the most energy is converted.

 Converting Sunlight Into Energy – How Home Solar Panels Work

Turning the power of the sun into usable electricity takes several steps. TriSMART Solar is ready to answer any questions you may have along the process:

1)  Solar Panels

Photovoltaic (PV) cells collect energy from the sun. We adjust them to ensure to optimize the sun rays. They convert sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity.


2)  DC to AC Power (Inverter)

The Solar Inverter then takes the direct current (DC) power generated by your panels and convert it into alternating current (AC) power.  Our advanced Tier 1 Inverters are much more productive than traditional string technology which allows home owners to have significantly larger, safer and more productive systems.

3)  Net Meter

The AC power is sent through your meter to your appliances. Whatever is not used is sent back to the electrical grid.  Note: The meter actually spins both backward and forward—measuring the excess electricity you’re sending (selling) to the grid and then to pull power from the grid at night.

4) Now, kick back and enjoy

Lower electrical bills today and locked in savings for the life of your panels.



Tips to get the most from your new solar system:

  • Properly insulating your home will reduce heating and cooling costs

  • Installing double pane, energy efficient windows will reduce loss of cool air

  • Secure and seal holes and cracks in the walls, window frames and door jams will reduce energy costs and keep outdoor allergens out

  • Insulating & sealing your duct system will reduce air loss save money

  • Only buy Energy Star appliances

  • Maintain the same home energy habits you have had in the past
