Grid Tie

  • The most common type of Solar Electric install completed in Saskatchewan by Rock Paper Sun.
  • In effect uses the electrical grid as a buffer or battery.

    • Home uses solar energy when both available and needed.
    • Grid uses solar energy when not needed by the home - homeowner typically gets a credit for this energy.
    • Grid provides energy when solar is not available, or not enough solar is available - energy is either purchased by the home owner, or available as a credit for energy previously stored onto the grid.
  • Exceptional monitoring ability is possible on these systems.
  • When the grid is “down” most grid-tied systems are also required to shut down.  This prevents the possibility of back-feeding a faulty grid.
