How does a grid-connected solar electric system work?
By on grid we mean that the solar electric system is connected to the Electricity Board power lines. The working of an on grid solar electric system is very simple.
Broken down into its component parts the steps are:
We can also create a hybrid solar electric system. It is an on-grid solar system with an extra battery storage added. Since there is an added battery component the cost will be higher than the on-grid system, but the benefits are also higher.
This system combines the best of the on-grid and off-grid solar electric systems. While you can continue selling electricity generated to the grid in times of surplus you can also store and use it during those times when there are problems in supply and regular blackouts.
