Grid-tied solar systems explained

3-25, 2021 / By MUST Power

With grid-tied solar systems, the relationship between the solar panels and the utility grid is crucial.

Must grid-tied systems are solar power setups that are connected to the electricity grid — and work without any battery backup equipment.

They are currently the most common type of solar panel system in many homes. And despite growing interest in battery technologies, most homeowners going solar today still opt for installing a grid-tied setup on their roofs.

So how do grid-tied solar systems work, and why are they so popular? More importantly, are they the right kind of system for you? This blog will take an in-depth look at this system type and help you answer those questions.

A quick note: this type of solar panel system is known by many names, such as ‘on-grid,’ ‘grid-connect(ed),’ ‘grid-intertied’ and ‘grid-direct.’ They all refer to the same thing.

What is a grid-tied solar system?

A grid-tied system uses solar panels to generate electricity from sunlight. Excess power is exported to the utility grid, and similarly, when the household requires more power, those needs are met by imports from the grid.

How grid-tied systems are different from other systems 
·They use grid-tie inverters: Grid-tied solar systems require an inverter that can communicate with the grid; these are known as grid-tie inverters. take PH5000 grid tie inverter from must power for an example. The grid-tie inverter enables homes to not just import power from the utility, but the export of power to the utility as well.
·No battery storage: They don’t include any form of energy storage to store solar power. This makes grid-tied solar systems simpler to install, and cheaper.

How much does a grid-tied solar system cost?

It’s very competitive price from an original manufacturer. Please contact with sale team to email: for best price
