How does it work?
- a Plug-in grid-tied solar system works as follows.
- The solar panel converts sunlight into DC (direct current) power
- A micro-inverter converts DC to AC (Alternating current) power.
- The micro-inverter synchronises with the frequency of the grid and feeds back the generated power to the grid.
- Your electricity meter turns backwards
- Your electricity bill is reduced
How is it installed?
- Mount the solar panel on your roof or balcony
- Connect the panel to the micro-inverter
- Plugin the micro-inverter into a wall plug
- Solar panel
- Mounting system
- Wall plug

Frequently Asked Questions for Plug-in grid-tied solar system
What happens in the event of a power failure?
By design the system switches off immediately and automatically. This is as per requirements and for safety. As the system is a grid-tied system, it required a grid to opperate.
If I want to add more panels later on, is that possible?
Yes, the system can easily be expanded to add more inverters and panels later on. The one micro-inverter just plugs into the next one.
How much power and costs can I save?
