“In the future, installing a solar array for your home could be as easy as plugging in common household appliances, which are purchased, installed and operational in one day.” Source: Energy.gov

Plugged Solar™ is a DIY Solar Energy Kit that typically installs in 1 day. It plugs into the regular wall socket as you plug any appliance. The DIY kit is preconfigured and prewired reduces the cost of solar, making the installation simple, saving the homeowners more than half of the typical solar installation cost.

 

 
 
WHAT IS THE PLUGGED SOLAR?

Plugged Solar technology converts the solar panel electricity to regular household voltage of 120V AC, this 120V AC can be plug in directly to the wall socket or it can be connected straight to the main electrical panel box, it works as long as there is utility power. If there is a power cut from the power company the solar electric system instantly stops producing electricity. All the components are UL approved, the Grid Tie Inverter has UL-1741 anti-islanding protection.

This makes the approach of solar energy at home affordable and effective, no expensive installation cost necessary, everybody can assemble and connect the system in an easy way.

 
PLUGGED SOLAR HOW IT WORKS?

When the solar rays fall on the Solar Panel Direct Current (DC) electricity is generated. DC electricity flows to the  Grid Tie Inverter and is converted to 240 Volt AC (Alternating Current), this 240V AC flows to the Converter where is converted to 120V AC,  this 120V AC is plugged into a wall socket, the whole system works interacting with grid power.

When the system is generating power and plugged into the grid, it starts turning your electrical meter backwards producing credit into your utility account.
