There are two primary types of solar electric systems for anyone getting into solar to consider.
The first are grid-tied systems that contribute to, or use energy from, the utility grid.
The second are off-grid systems that are designed to provide a more self-reliant option.
Grid-tied solar systems are the most common types of solar systems. A grid-tied system generates power on-site to supply a home
or business that is connected to the utility grid. This type of system is best used to offset the usage from the utility company.
An off-grid solar system with a battery back-up can supply power to a remote home, cabin or other facilities that lack access
to the public utility grid. Electricity from the solar modules is stored in large battery banks from which
the inverter will draw power when needed.
When it comes to getting a solar system installed on your home, there isn’t a whole lot of
requirements put in place by the government or by solar companies. The government is even offering
tax credits to those who decide to invest in solar energy.
While there are not any requirements that would prevent you from getting solar, there are some things
to consider before you invest in solar.
