When choosing a solar electric system for your home, there are two options to consider. One option is to go with a grid tied pv solar system. What exactly is this system and how does it work?
A grid tied solar system is one that is connected to your regular electrical supply. The power produced by the solar panels is fed into the main power lines and then into your system. It works together with the power you recieve from your electricity supplier. The benefit of this system is that when your system produces more power than you use, the power if fed back to the supplier. In this case, your electric meter will go backwards, essentially giving you 'credits'. This will mean a lower bill or possibly not one at all.
Another benefit of a grid tied pv solar system is that you don't have to pay for the batteries to store the power that is created, unlike with an off the grid system. And since you are connected to the main utility grid, you will always have access to electricity, regardless of whether your solar system produces enough power that day.
