Grid Tied System

First, let’s establish exactly what a grid-tied solar system is.

The simplest definition of a solar system is one that is connected to the electrical power grid. The system is reliant on this grid to produce usable solar energy and funnel excess energy for net metering, clean energy credits, or later usage.

It may seem counterintuitive to install a solar power system that is reliant on the same energy grid you’re trying to get away from, however, once you understand the facts of how a solar system works and the benefits it provides over an off-grid system, it will make much more sense.

One of the questions we get a lot is, well, where do the batteries go? In a modern system, most of the time there aren’t any. The way that is works: you’ve got your sun, you’ve got your house, and you’ve got your solar. Couple pieces of equipment that make this whole thing work: you’ve got an inverter, you’ve got your meter, and you have the electrical grid. So the suns going to hit the panels and create direct current electricity. That direct current is going to run to an inverter. The inverter switches it from DC to AC (alternating current) which is what we use in our house.
