So today we’re installing just a small battery
system but for larger houses they make a whole range of equipment. This is a grid tie inverter.
We’ll just take the cover off and you can see, it’s not really that complex. We’ve got
giant coils and switching and some electronics in there. So for a grid tied system you end
up using different products, and some of it is quite hazardous so typically you’ll hire
a contractor to come in and handle the main panel connections as well as some of the paperwork
is a bit tricky when you’re trying to get rebates. At least in California we get up
to half our money back from the state when we put in a solar system. So down here, at
the bottom of this grid tie inverter we have connections for our solar panels coming in
as well as some fusing, which is a safety factor and the required switching that turns
the AC and DC power on and off for safety. Hiring a contractor for the larger systems
is a must.
