How do you hook up a solar panel to your house

By having a grid tied system, you are eligible for tax credits, plus you'll be able to sell your excess power back to your power company. You can then connect your inverter to your main power supply or connect your appliances to the batteries directly, depending on the type you got. The reason I ask is, is there an efficient way to store the solar energy for use anytime so to be completely off the grid? They had a machine that lifted the panels and tons of bricks onto the roof, then they all had to be carried over and installed.

Step 4 Connect the battery to the inverter. However, if you are switching entirely to the solar power, you will have to purchase and install batteries that store the solar power for use at night. Would you like us to quote you on a system that will do exactly what you need it to do? Most have an electrician or other professional do the wiring and metering into the house.
