What is a grid-tied solar PV system?
Most PV systems are grid-tied systems that work in conjunction with the power supplied by the electric company. A grid-tied solar system has a special inverter that can receive power from the grid or send grid-quality AC power to the utility grid when there is an excess of energy from the solar system. Grid-Tied Solar PV System
Does a grid-tied solar system provide power during a power outage?
No power during grid outages: Grid-tied solar systems lack battery storage 鈥?which means that they provide no backup power. For safety reasons, this is the case even when power outages occur during daylight hours.
How do I add battery backup to an existing grid-tied system?
See the Outback site for more info on using AC coupling to add battery backup to an existing grid-tied system. This is the easiest way to retrofit your system, especially a microinverter system. The battery bank connects to the Radian, which is installed between the grid-tied inverter and your load panels.
What is the payback period for a grid-tied solar system?
The payback period for grid-tied systems is between 3 and 9 years in most states. More reliable than other PV setups: As it requires the least amount of equipment, a grid-tied solar system has the fewest points of potential failure. There’s really only one disadvantage of a grid-connected system:
