Residential Grid Tie Systems

Going green is now easier and cheaper than ever. With the cost of a solar PV system at an all time low, and the price of electricity constantly rising, it creates the perfect opportunity to invest in something that’s guaranteed to pay you back.

How Does A Grid-Tied System Work?

how does a grid tie solar system work

1. Solar panels are installed either on your roof or on a ground mount system.

2. The panels collect sunlight and turn it into DC electricity.

3. The DC electricity is then converted into your typical AC electricity found in your house.

4. The inverter then runs to your main electrical panel which distributes power throughout the house.

5. Any power that isn’t used by the house is fed into the main electrical grid and kept track of via a bi-directional meter.

    This meter is provided free of charge and also tracks how much power you use when the array isn’t producing (i.e. at night).

6. The meter is read once a month to record how much you have used from the grid and how much has been exported.

    These savings and credits are shown on your monthly power bill.
