The Grid-Tied Solar System

How Grid-Tied Energy Works

A grid-tied system is a private photovoltaic system that is connected in parallel to the electrical grid and generates energy to the house &/or electrical grid. When your system produces more than 100% of your energy needs, it will send electricity back into the grid, and your electricity vendor will bank that energy for your future use at no cost.  When you produce more than 100% your meter actually runs in reverse!! (The more modern digital meter counts the energy going in both directions).

With net metering programs now approved in Costa Rica for all electrical providers, many homeowners are now experiencing the benefits of solar electricity by reducing their monthly bills and eliminating electrical cost for more then 20 years.

The Hybrid Grid-Tied with Battery Back-Up Solar System

Grid-tied systems do not require a battery bank because the grid provides energy resources and storage for cloudy days and at night. The system needs the voltage of the grid to operate and when the grid is lost so is the grid-tied system. This type of solar system cannot feed power to a dead grid per international law (giving protection for people working in the electrical lines).

Even though grid-tied systems do not require a battery bank, there are many scenarios where use a battery bank with their grid-tied system is useful. With a battery backup bank, when the grid has an interruption, or blackout, the switch from the grid to batteries is seamless.
