> RE System > Grid Tie

All RE systems can be used to connect to the local grid whether you decide on a straight grid tie or grid tie/battery backup system. Consultation with the local utility, Kodiak Electric Association, is essential to understand their specific net metering agreements with their customers. In addition, local Kodiak Island Borough zoning and building codes must be met. Local electrical and construction contractors may be utilized. Sourdough Solar can provide the RE equipment, consultation, and installation, and recommend the local contractors for the project.

The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has a detailed explanation of how net metering works and its benefits.

Use PV Watts to calculate the financial feasibility of a solar electric project in light of the local net metering policy.
