"On Grid" or "Grid-connected" systems are the systems that are connected to the utility grid through a special inverter. These Systems are more prevalent in "Feed-in Tariff" Applications. These Systems could be either be Roof Top mounted or Free Field Installations based on the size and capacity.
On grid solar energy is by far the cheapest form when compared to off grid solar energy. By generating your own electricity you reduce your electrical bill and in some cases may generate money by running the meter backwards (net metering). Usually you can achieve net metering during the day when all your appliances are off. This net metering or extra power is sold to the utility company through a program offered that you must sign up for. Also green power is handy during power failures so long as you have sunlight for your on grid solar system. A major benefit of these systems include the ability to be expanded as finances allow, they work against global warming on your own personal level, reduced electrical bills, security with backup systems, and remote availability of electricity.
