What are the advantages of a grid connected solar system ?

A grid-connected photovoltaic power system will reduce the power bill due to the import and export

of power through net metering provision. Illustration: someone imports (consumes) 1,000 kWh from the

grid and exports 600 kWh to the grid in a billing cycle. The energy bill will be for 400 kWh (1000 kWh 600
kWh) accounted by Netmeter.

Grid-connected PV systems do not require batteries. Batteries are costly require periodic maintenance

and also lead to wastage of 15 20 % energy in storage and retrieval.
