Grid-Tied Solar power

The most cost-effective way to invest in clean, green solar power

Grid-tied solar power system

A ZEN Energy grid-tied residential solar system allows you to enjoy the benefits of free solar power while still retaining a connection to the main power grid.

What is a grid-tied solar system

A grid-tied solar power system connects your residential power to a set of solar panels on the roof of your home, providing free power while the sun is shining. During periods of lower power production or high demand, it switches to the utilities-backed power grid.

Grid-tied solar power systems provide all the benefits of solar as well as the consistency of a main power grid.

All ZEN grid-tied systems include high-performance LONGi mono-crystalline solar panels and the latest GoodWe grid-tied inverters.

This combination provides you with the highest efficiency grid-tied system available, built from market leading components, all at an incredibly cost-effective price

How does a grid-tied solar system work?

A typical grid-tied solar power system includes three parts: the photovoltaic solar panels on the roof, a rack that holds those panels, and a solar inverter that converts the solar power into something usable in your home.

Once installed, a grid-tied solar power system instantly begins producing electricity, powering all your home appliances, including the fridge, the television, the lights, even the boiler. Any existing electrical connection can be powered by the grid-tied solar energy system.

This solar power supplements your existing power grid connection, instantly reducing your demand and reliance on your utility company and cutting down on your overall electricity bills.

If the sun isn’t shining or you experience higher-than-expected demand, a grid-tied solar power system can also draw on the grid as usual, ensuring you always have a back-up source of power.

Grid-tied solar power systems are, generally, the most cost-effective and easy-to-install of the three main types of solar power grids, making them one of the most popular of the three main types of solar power systems.

What solar capacity do I need?

Generally, residential solar power systems are measured in kilowatts (kW), which refers to the maximum amount of energy that a system can generate.

ZEN Energy grid-tied solar power systems range from 2.22kW through to 5.18kW, with the top end being the maximum likely required for any residential application. 

You can compare your monthly costs (or desired savings) and find a recommended system from the table below.
