On Grid Solar Systems

As the name suggests, grid-tied solar system means your solar PV system is connected to the grid. When your solar panels are not producing energy and you need back up power, you can draw energy from the grid. When you have excess energy, you can sell it back to your energy provider.


With a grid-tied solar system, you enjoy these benefits:

  • You can transfer the excess power back to the grid for a credit in your utility bill
  • No battery is needed with a grid-tied system. So they are cheaper and easier to set up than off-grid or hybrid systems
  • The system will pay for itself within as little as 7 years
