If you are looking at getting a solar system for a new home, you will no doubt be asking yourself one of the most common questions that come up when solar electric systems are being considered. Do I get a grid tied or off grid system?
Many factors need to be considered when answering this question for yourself and making a decision. Where you live, what your needs are and what you expect from your system all play a big part in deciding which system you will get. You also need to consider whether you still want to be connected and reliant on the electrical grid, as this is the case with a grid connected system. Having an off grid system means you are completely seperate from the electrical grid, but if you run out of power you have no backup.
For more information on either the grid tied system or off grid systems, visit our information pages.
