Grid Tied

Grid Tied

A grid tied system uses solar energy to power your energy needs during the day via PV panels, but becomes fully and/or partially reliant on conventional energy from the power grid during times when there is not enough solar energy for your requirements. The extra need is taken up from the national electricity grid to supplement the solar energy at night as this system does not have the battery backup to store solar power for use at a later stage.

Grid tied solar systems are a great way to reduce your business or household’s electricity consumption, decrease monthly bills and take care of daytime essentials. Daylight electricity hogs like domestic appliances, computers, air conditioning and geysers can be powered by a solar system while night time electricity needs are drawn from the grid.

It is important to note that a grid tied system does NOT give you power during load shedding or power failures. It uses the electricity grid as a reference point and therefore does not work when there is no electricity, you still need some form of battery or back-up system to get you through the power outages!
