Renewable Energy: Grid-Tied Components

– What we’re looking at here is some of the devices and connections and electrical things, doohickeys, that we associate with a grid-tied photovoltaic system. Remember that grid-tied is a very nice way to use your photovoltaic. In this case, this building has photovoltaics on the south facing roof structure. And this side is where […]
