Types of Solar Power for the Home
There are a few ways in which you can generate power for your home through installing solar panels. It is important to understand your options in order to correctly set up your system and start benefitting from solar power.
Grid Connected (no batteries)
With this type of solar power, the system is connected to the grid without any back-up because you are using the grid in place of the battery. If your house requires more power, it will simply consume what it needs from the grid. When your system generates more electricity than you can consume, that power is given to the grid (local utility).
Grid Connected (with batteries)
The main difference with this type of solar power system is that you will have batteries in addition to your connection to the grid. What this means is that the batteries will act as storage for power so that if the grid experiences a power outage, the power from your battery will keep your lights on. If your solar power system generates more energy than you consume, it will continue to go into the grid.
With this type of system, you are not connected to your utility. The system will generate, store and consume its own power, without any help from external resources. This installation is tricky because the contractor will need to know the exact amount of power you require. This system is more often used in rural areas where the cost of bringing in power from a utility is very high.
