Solar panels: sit on the roof and convert the energy in sunlight to electrical energy. This is in the form of direct current (DC) electricity.
Inverter: converts DC electricity to alternating current (AC) power. This is the type of power that’s required for your home and the grid..
Switchboard: where the power is sent so it can be used by your household electrical equipment.
