What is a Grid-tied System ?
Grid-tied solar power systems are designed to generate electricity from sunlight and feed that electricity back into the electrical grid. Here's a basic overview of how a grid-tied solar system works:
Solar Panels: The system starts with solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, which are installed on the roof or in an open area to capture sunlight. These panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity.
Inverter: The DC electricity generated by the solar panels needs to be converted into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is the type of electricity used in homes and businesses. This is done by an inverter, which is a crucial component of the system.
AC Power to the Building: The inverter sends the converted AC electricity to the main electrical panel of the building, where it can be used to power appliances, lights, and other electrical devices.
Utility Grid Connection: In a grid-tied system, there is a connection to the utility grid. This connection is important because it allows for the flow of electricity in both directions.
Electricity Consumption and Grid Interaction: When the solar panels produce more electricity than the building is using, the excess electricity is sent back to the grid.
When the building needs more electricity than the solar panels are producing (e.g., at night or on cloudy days), it draws electricity from the grid.
Net Metering: With net metering, the excess electricity sent back to the grid on a bi directional meter, effectively giving the owner credit for the electricity they contribute. This credit can be used to offset the electricity drawn from the grid when the solar panels are not generating enough power.
