So I'm trying to use solar panels during the day to reduce the energy bills, without a) having a grid tie system, because the utility company around here is crooked, and b) without batteries, because I don't want to waste expansive space, and have half a ton of lead acid laying around. So the idea is to have the solar panels reduce the energy bill during the day only. How is this possible? I've been completely clueless until yesterday where 7 people told me it can't be done, and 1 person said you could use a grid tie system, with a power meter, and set the power meter to never send any power to the utility, that way the solar panels are combined with the outlet to result in reduced energy use from the utility, is this true? can this be done? If not what other ways are there to get the same result?
No announcement yet.
solar power without using batteries?
