While the solar panels get all the glory, it's the inverter that quietly sits in the background and does all the heavy lifting. The brains of the solar systems, inverters are the key component that converts light from the sun from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) so the energy can be used in your home. It's also at this stage the monitoring of your system takes place. Inverters enable monitoring so installers and owners can see how a system is performing. Inverters can also provide diagnostic information to help O&M crews identify and fix system issues. With the growth of solar+storage, inverters are also taking on responsibility for battery management.

With its plentiful sunlight, Georgia is the ideal place for solar power. But until recently, going solar – or solarizing – was beyond the budget of most people. Thanks to Solarize Georgia, affordable solar power has come to Dunwoody. And Tricia and Jason Webster are the first homeowners to go solar through Solarize Dunwoody.
“Actually, we were the fourth to sign up,” said Tricia, “but the first to receive our system.”
If you're going to make the transition to energy independence, it's time to meet your loyal soldiers on the front line. Introducing the Q.PEAK Solar Module by Q.CELLS. Campaign organizers requested contractors to bid using best-in-class materials for the lowest possible price -- and Hannah Energy delivered!
About 75 Dunwoody and Sandy Springs residents packed the Dunwoody Nature Center to hear from community leaders and solar experts about the program. Community leaders Robert Wittenstein (Dunwoody Homeowners Association), Jason Metzger (Dunwoody Sustainability Committee), and Tina Wilkinson (UMC Earthkeepers) explained why they are bringing a Solarize program to Dunwoody while representatives from Hannah Energy talked about the benefits of solar and showed off some of the solar components selected for the program, including the Tesla Powerwall 2.
