ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the use of photovoltaic panels for powering a solar lifestyle. This photovoltaic panels or array, collects sunlight and converts it into solar energy. The energy is stored in special batteries inside the home before being sent to a power inverter that converts the energy from direct current to alternating current.
