Grid Connected Systems
We are fully accredited to design, build and install Grid Connected Systems.
A grid-connected photovoltaic power system, or grid-connected PV power system is an electricity generating solar PV power system that is connected to the existing power grid. A grid connected system consists of solar panels, one or several inverters, a power conditioning unit and grid connection equipment.
Grid connected systems are the most common in built-up areas and supply solar electricity through an inverter directly to the household AND to the electricity grid if the system is providing more energy than the house needs. When power is supplied to the mains grid, you receive a credit or a payment, called a "feed-in tariff" for that electricity.
There are two different types of tariffs, gross and net. A gross feed in tariff pays an amount on all electricity produced whereas a net feed-in tariff only pays on surplus energy created by the system. In Australia, net feed in-tariffs are predominant.
Any size grid connect solar power system will reduce your yearly power consumption and your therefore your power bill. The bigger the system, the bigger the benefit, and we can design a system to suit your budget and/or power requirements.
