On-grid – also known as a grid-tie or grid-feed solar system
On-grid or grid-tie solar systems are by far the most common and widely used by homes and businesses. These systems do not need batteries and use common solar invertor and are connected to the public electricity grid. Any excess solar power that you generate is exported to the electricity grid and you usually get paid a feed-in-tariff (FiT) or credits for the energy you export.
The On-grid system is connected with utility grid (like PSPCL, Punjab) and this system would work only if the grid is available. In case of a power cut, the system will not work and hence the On-grid system is also termed as a Grid-tied system. Grid is required since the inverter needs to be provided a reference voltage and the inverter needs to sync with the grid in order to export energy back into the grid.
Once the solar generation starts, the generated energy is first consumed by the loads. Once the load requirement is satisfied, the remaining energy will be exported to the grid. Grid by itself acts as a virtual battery taking in all the excess energy that has been exported. This is known as banking of energy.
During the night, when there is no solar, the loads can import the banked energy. Similarly, when there is less generation from solar due to cloudy conditions, the required energy is imported from the grid. At the end of every billing cycle, the export and import billing will be calculated and this net will be calculated with the help of a Bi-directional meter.
