Grid Tie Solar

The grid-tie solar array is a type of PV system that is dependent on the national grid for additional power. When the power that is produced by the solar array is not enough to run your appliances, it will get the required energy that your house needs from the electric company. There is also an option that when the PV has excess production, it will sell the energy back to the energy company.
Grid-tied solar power systems are available with or without battery backup for emergency power and maximum cost savings through time of day rates. Remote monitoring and control is also available for real-time performance assessment of the power produced by the system.
The solar energy generated by the solar panels is converted to AC power by the Grid Tied Inverter and feed into the AC Grid. Because of the technical conception of these systems energy generated is consumed immediately. A possible access of energy will be feed into the public grid against a compensation.
Customers should please contact us for a quote for your grid tied solar system selection or if you require expert help with choosing the correct system to satisfy your immediate and future home or business solar energy requirement.

Suitable Applications

  • Commercial Power Backup
  • Industrial Power Backup
  • Educational Institutions
  • Farms

Why Invest in Grid Tied Solar

Grid-tie system will generate utility-synchronous power on your home or business. This power can be used to reduce your utility consumption and bills; in Kenya, it can be sold back to Kenya Power.

Save more money with net metering

A grid-connection will allow you to save more money with solar panels through better efficiency rates, net metering, plus lower equipment and installation costs.Net metering (or feed-in tariff schemes in some countries) play an important role in how solar power is incentivized. Without it, residential solar systems would be much less feasible from a financial point of view. Many utility companies are committed to buying electricity from homeowners at the same rate as they sell it themselves.

The Utility is a Virtual Battery

Additional perks of being grid-tied include access to backup power from the utility grid (in case your solar system stop generating electricity for one reason or another). At the same time you help to mitigate the utility company`s peak load. As a result, the efficiency of our electrical system as a whole goes up.

Lower cost of equipment and installation cost (fewer upfront cost)

The major bulk of cost for a off grid solar PV system comes from its battery storage system that is purposely oversized to ensure continuous supply the power in needs or during prolong winter where sun hours is reduced.
