On Grid Solar System

The on-grid solar system also known as grid tie or connected solar system. This is the most cost effective type for solar system compare to off grid and hybrid solar system for electricity saving or reduce bill.

In this solar system, solar inverter converts the DC electricity produced by solar panel into AC electricity. Which can then be used directly at home or business.

“If you have a reliable electricity grid  ( less then 2 hours power or electricity cut in day time ) and only want to save your electricity bill, on grid solar power system is recommended for you.”

How Does An On-Grid Solar System Work?

In an on-grid solar system, the array of solar panel are connected with the solar inverter, which is connected to the grid through your electricity meter. The solar panel converts the sunlight into DC electricity. This inverter converts the DC power into an alternating current better known as AC power. This AC power is the standard electrical current used for powering most home appliances and luxuries throughout the world.

  • During the day, if the solar system’s production exceeds the house’s electrical needs, the excess electricity is automatically fed into the power grid via “Net-Metering”. When this occurs, you can observe the electrical meter spin backward.
  • At night or anytime a household is using more electricity than the solar system is producing, the extra energy needed to power the house is pulled from the grid as it normally would be.

Whether the electricity is being drawn from the solar system or utility grid, your home’s power performance will stay the same.

Let us understand it through an example. Suppose your on-grid solar system produces 40 units in one day and you are using only 25 units at home, then the balance of 15 units will be sent to the utility grid or government through net metering which results in savings in your electricity bills.

What is Net-Metering?

Net metering is a process that analyzes and displays your grid exports and imports, like how much power is generated by solar, how much we consumed, and how much exported to the grid. Your electricity bill will be calculated on above said parameters.

All these procedures are performed by a bi-directional meter. This tracking meter will keep tracking of a home’s total electrical consumption. You can easily track how much of your home’s electricity needs are being met by your system’s production and how well your system is performing at any point in time.

FAQs about On Grid System

On grid system is grid based solar system which connects with the grid. In this solar system, you can export excess power to the grid. Whenever grid goes, the system will automatically shut down.

Solar Net metering is a system which allows you to export excess solar electricity into the utility grid. By exporting power to the grid, you can reduce your electricity bill. Government will adjust it in your upcoming bills.

Government will not pay you in cash. There is a process of adjustment. When you export electricity into grid through net metering, your meter start to run inversely. And the units in your meter that you have already consume, starts to reduce.

Again it depends upon the type and capacity of solar system. The required solar panels are:

 

Solar system is available in 3 different type. The types are (1) On grid solar system, (2) Off grid solar system and (3) Hybrid solar system.

All the solar systems are best. In on grid solar system you can export excess power to grid, in off grid solar system you can store excess power in battery and in hybrid solar system you will get the features of both solar system.

You can’t store excess power in on grid power system because solar battery does not used in this the same.

This is grid based system and it supports to grid. This system is not capable to run the connected load itself. So, it sense that the grid electricity first and then start generation and whenever grid goes it automatically shut down.

Solar inverter is an important component of solar system. Solar inverter converts DC power into AC power to run your appliances. It also match the frequency of current according to the requirement of battery and grid as well.  Read more about solar inverter here.

It depends upon the capacity of your solar system.

Yes, there is up to 30% subsidy by government on solar panels. To know more in detail about subsidy, contact us.
