Grid Tied

As the price of electricity steadily climbs, solar technology has become more affordable.
Grid tied systems have become a household staple. Modern equipment is powerful and designed to
Be integrated into the home and provide seamless, reliable power for over 25 years.
There are City, State and Federal incentives, that will help the home owner offset the cost of a Solar system. Federal incentives cover 30% of whole system cost, State and City incentives vary by state and county. Most of the state incentives are distributed by your local Electric Company, while Federal incentives are tax credits and allowances.
There are three types of systems that are popular in grid tied applications:
  • Centralized inverter or String inverter
  • Micro inverters
  • Battery back-up - grid tied inverters

Centralized inverters work with strings of solar panels wired together (in series) to accumulate
The power of every solar module into one circuit. Usually the voltage is 600v D/C Nominal, that minimizes loss. This D/C power is produces by solar modules on the roof, and the inverter is usually mounted near the main electrical service panel, where it is efficiently converted over to A/C power to sell back to the grid.
The total output of the String, is directly related to the sum of all the Modules, when one is affected or shaded, the output of the whole string is reduced. This results in less power production and less credit with your utility power which can lead to having a higher electric bill, and a longer return of investment.
Micro inverters are inverters that are designed to work with the output of a single solar module
Reducing stress on components and allowing for a smaller compact size. Micro inverters produce A/C power on your roof, then its routed to the main service panel. Since each inverter works independently from each other, shading of one module does not affect the power output of the rest of the system.
Battery back- up inverters, have a battery bank that stores energy and can provide sufficient power To your home in case of a power outage. The battery back-up system works very similar to your computer UPS system, except with enough reservoirs to run your home. The power that can be provided will be directly related to the size of the battery bank. Battery power is never used unless an outage occurs, mean time batteries are kept fully charged and all excess power is sold to the grid in the same way as a conventional grid tied system does.
