 Grid Tie Systems
 
How it works
 
Grid tie systems are a solar installation which is tied directly to the electricity grid. The system is designed to sell all of the electricity that your solar array produces, through a two-way meter. You still use electricity from the utility supplier in your home, but your input of electricity back to the grid will decrease, if not bring to zero your monthly electricity bills. 
 
Who it works for
 
Grid tie systems can be used by anyone who has a home tied to the electricity grid. They are quickly becoming the most popular style of systems being installed. The system size is dependent on the size of your home and the amount of electricity you use. 
 
 
 
Off Grid System
 
How it works
 
Off grid systems are designed for the user to be fully disconnnected from the utility grid, or just not using electricity from the grid. Your primary source of power is a solar array which stores electricity in a bank of batteries, so when you need it you have it. From the batteries, the electricity is inverted to standard household ac voltage to feed your entire home. 
 
Who it works for
 
Off grid systems are usually better suited for rural homes. In most cases the system requires more space for a larger solar array. The system size is dependent on the size of your home and the amount of electricity you use.
