If you have utility power now, you can easily use solar photovoltaic power in your home. The clean power works invisibly, in parallel with the utility. Your electric meter can turn backward, crediting surplus electricity for future use. Modern systems are clean, efficient, reliable and maintenance-free. Some systems will provide power during a utility outage. This presentation will explain how grid-tied solar works, show slides of installed systems and cover costs, benefits, laws and how to get started.
