The most common type of solar photovoltaic (PV) system is grid-connected. Rooftop panels are installed with an inverter that converts solar power from DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current). Your home uses the solar system as its primary power source, relying on the grid as a back-up.
When you install a solar PV system with a net meter, your home uses the electricity produced by the panels at the time the electricity is generated. Any additional electricity you generate but don't use is fed back into the main electricity grid.
