Grid Tied Solar System


What exactly are grid-tied solar systems anyway? Making use of this type of solar system means you are connected to Eskoms power grid. This is a common type of system since you don’t need batteries to get connected. The power grid acts as a backup battery. These types of systems have also been named – grid-direct, grid-intertied or on-grid.

The grid-tied solar system Cape Town will allow you to have more savings because it is efficient, it offers net metering, and it requires a low cost of equipment and installation. It does not require the use of batteries, which are usually expensive. Moreover, since there are no batteries, maintenance cost is kept at a minimum. Overall, the grid-tied system is cheap to install and keep.




Constant Reliable Power


Grid connected photovoltaic systems guarantee a home always has access to power, even if the solar energy fails or is insufficient. The system’s inverter connects to a battery bank that can store energy to be used in a power failure. An advantage of grid connected systems is that they are not dependent on the sun shining. Off grid photovoltaic energy is only intermittent but grid connected systems ensure that any additional electricity needed is automatically delivered by the grid.

When insufficient electricity is available, electricity drawn from the mains grid can make up the shortfall.

Direct Current (DC) electricity from sources such as hydro, wind or solar is passed to an inverter which is grid tied.

The inverter monitors the alternating current mains supply frequency and generates electricity that is phase matched to the mains.
