Grid-Connected Solar

So, what is grid-connected solar?

Grid-connected or a grid-tier solar system is a great option! Your home can draw electricity from the grid if there isn’t enough power being generated by the solar panels or stored in the solar batteries (if applicable).

Produce your own energy

A grid-connected or grid-tied solar system is connected to the electrical power grid (mains power). Any electricity produced by a grid-connected system but not needed by your house (or solar batteries) is simply exported back to the grid, and purchased by your electricity retailer by the kWh (kilowatt-hour) at a set price (buyback rate). The buyback rate differs across retailers but is generally between 7c and 12.5c per kWh. Check with your retailer to confirm your rate.
