Grid Tied Inverters
Grid-Tied Inverters and Accessories
The most common grid-tied inverter takes hi voltage DC and outputs to the electrical grid during the day, thus “storing” your energy production there enabling you to “take it back” at night. Of course any electricity that you use during the day comes directly from your own production. In this way you can eliminate your electric bill entirely, or at the very least drastically reduce the bill. 85% of all the grid tied systems we design are exactly this system. The only drawback to this design is that when the grid goes down the system must shut down as well. You can’t be an “island” in the middle of the grid producing power because; you could kill someone working on a power line somewhere else.
