What does Grid-Tied and
Off-Grid Solar Mean?

    Grid-tied systems are the usual type of solar PV system. Grid-tied systems are connected to the electrical grid, and allow residents of a building to use solar energy as well as electricity from the grid. Grid-tied systems do not need to produce 100% of the electricity demand for a home or business. When there is no demand for energy, the solar panels send excess electricity back out into the grid for use elsewhere. When a home or business is using energy, but the solar panels aren't producing enough energy (at night, or on a stormy day), electricity from the grid supplements or replaces electricity from the panels.

    Living with a grid-tied solar PV system is no different than living with utility electricity, except that some or all of the electricity you use comes from the sun. Grid-tied systems do not provide protection from power outages. When the electrical grid fails, grid-tied systems will not continue to operate. This allows utility employees to fix the power lines safely without wasting time identifying solar energy systems that are still feeding electricity into the power lines.

    Off-grid systems are most common in remote locations without utility service. But, we have found that they are great in town as well. Non-grid tie solar-electric systems operate independently from the local utility grid to provide electricity to a home, building, boat, or RV, etc. These systems require a battery bank to store solar electricity for use during night time or cloudy weather. A backup source of energy like a generator or an auto-switch device to switch to grid power is recommended. An off-grid solar system must be large enough to produce enough electricity to cover 100% of the energy needs of the circuits it powers. In all remote off-grid scenarios, electrical usage must be monitored and kept below the maximum output of the panels and batteries when there is no grid-source to supply excess power. Our auto-switch system eliminates this need in town and allows partial home coverage of the no cost power from the sun.

    System components:

    • PV panels
    • battery bank
    • charge controller
    • inverter
    • electrical safety gear (i.e. fuses, breakers)
    • auto switch to utility for uninterrupted power
