Do I stay connected to the electricity grid?

Solar power is available in grid connected and off grid (stand alone) systems.  In urban areas, households and other buildings can remain connected to the electricity grid and don’t require any battery storage.  On a cloudy day, at night or if you use more power than you generate, you automatlically draw power from the grid.  If your system produces more electricity than you need, the surplus is fed into the grid for others to consume.
