Years after years more and more states are changing their net metering policies. Nowadays (2020) getting net-metering for industrial rooftop solar power plant is not possible in many states of India, even if you have someone in a government office.
And for the residence solar projects, sometimes it takes more than three months to get net-metering done for their plant. And even the charges of Net-metering are very high in some parts of Maharashtra.
In this blog, we cover the complete guide on the use of grid-tied solar power plant without net metering. , we cover the use of a grid-tie inverter off the gird.
Can a grid-tie inverter be used off-grid?
A grid-tie inverter can be used off-grid, with the help of ZED Advance. Grid-tie inverter required reference voltage to generate electricity. The generator set can be used as a reference voltage for a grid-tie inverter to make it [grid tie inverter] work without gird power.
With ZED Advance any make of grid-tie inverter can be used off-gird. Zero Export device can eliminate the requirement of synchronization of grid power with a grid-tie inverter of a grid-tie solar power plant.
ZED Advance is used to protect the generator from solar surplus power. Learn more about how to protect the generator from solar surplus power.
An ON-Grid solar system without net metering
On gird, the solar system requires net metering to measure the total imported power from the state electricity grid and total power exported by the solar power plant. With ZED Advance any On-grid solar power plant can be sync (connected) with state gird without net metering.
Grid-tie inverter without net metering
With ZED Advance any make of grid-tie inverter can be commissioned without net metering. Also, there will is no requirement of approval from the state electricity grid for the use of ZED Advance with Grid tie inverter.
With ZED Advance any make of grid-tie inverter can be converter into a grid-tie inverter that does not feed into the grid you also call it grid-tie inverter no back feed or grid-tie inverter without grid
This type of system is also known as grid-tie inverter without export or grid-tie inverter without power
