Basic grid-tie system
A basic grid-tie system consists of solar cells and a grid tie inverter. Solar cells take
the sun’s energy and turn it into DC electricity. The inverter turns the DC electricity
generated by the solar cells into utility grade AC power which can be sold to the utility
grid. A grid-tie system is an effective way to obtain economical benefits, increase
green energy production and improve the environment.
Large-scale solar electrical systems play an important part in conservation and energy
production, and Schneider Electric is a premier supplier of inverters that turn the sun’s
energy into clean electricity. Grid tie inverters are a leading choice for large-scale solar
installations in Europe.
