What is a grid-tie inverter?
A grid-tie inverter (GTI), or grid-interactive inverter, is a power inverter used for converting (DC) direct current electricity from the PV panel into (AC) alternating current electricity for power use. The energy is then fed to an electrical grid. During times of over production the GTI sends remaining energy to the power grid. However, if the grid goes down the grid-tie inverter will disconnect from the grid during a blackout. The (NEC) national electrical code requires the installation of a grid-tie inverter to any on grid system.
