Hi, first time poster and home owner (non- electrician) in the middle of installing a new 20KW grid tied system and am looking for some input. I will be meeting with my electrical contractor later this week and want to understand the proper options available for tieing into my main panel. My system involves 70 Solarworld 285w panels which I already installed on my garage roof along with Solaredge optimizers feeding into 2 10KW inverters. My meter along with a 200 amp disconnect is located near the road which is 400 ft from my house where my main 200 amp panel is located. The two inverters are located in my detached garage which is 70 ft away from my house main panel. I'm new to solar systems and could figure out the roof top panel installation ok but just want to understand the electrical tie in side of the installation so when discussing it with my electrical contractor I'm sure we are doing the tie in properly. I've been told by an electrician that I could tie into my main panel with a 100 amp breaker but I've read about the 120% rule and it appears that this would be permitted by the code. Obviously the AHJ will be reviewing the layout prior to installation. Any input would be greatly appreciated....thanks!!!
