Where the Energy Goes From Your Solar PV System | A&R Solar

Here’s where the energy from your photovoltaic
system goes. First place, it’s going to go into your home
and be consumed by the loads in your home, much like your fridge or your freezer or your
microwave or your TV. Anything you are using in the middle of the
day when you are producing energy. If you produce more than what your home is
going to be consuming, you are backfeeding that to the grid and building up credit with
your utility. This is called net metering. When you are purchasing energy throughout
the daytime, you got to remember, your home is still consuming the same amount of energy
as before you got solar, but you are purchasing less because you are using energy during the
daytime that your photovoltaic system is generating.
