What is a residential grid-tied solar system?
A grid-tied or on-grid electrical system is simply a home solar system that is connected to the electrical grid. This means that the home can draw from both power sources and have an efficient supply of power.
If the solar power system is not producing enough electricity, it will start pulling from the grid, and if it produces more than necessary, it will put energy back into the grid which is stored as a credit for future power usage.
