A solar grid-tie system uses roof-mounted solar panels to collect energy from the sun and convert it into usable electricity. A solar power system installed on a grid-connected building can supply a portion of the power needed to run the site. During the day, electricity generated by the solar power system is fed into the building, offsetting the amount of power being drawn from the grid. Any excess power is fed back to the power utility to be used by someone else, resulting in a power credit. This concept is known as net metering.
Grid tie solar electric systems with some form of net metering program are the fastest growing segment of the solar market worldwide. With net metering programs now approved in most of the United States, and the popularity of installation programs in Germany and Japan, thousands of organizations are now experiencing the benefits of solar electricity.
