How large-scale solar works

As sunlight hits the solar panels, the energy from the sun is converted into direct current (DC) electricity before it flows into power inverters where it is converted into alternating current (AC).

The zero-emissions electricity travels through transformers and the voltage is boosted for delivery onto the electric grid for delivery to homes and businesses.
