What is Grid-connected system?

A power generating photovoltaic system consisting of PV modules, solar inverter, switchboard and electric meter, which is connected to the electrical grid. The public grid is used as a backup source of power in case less electricity has been generated by a solar array than needed. If a PV plant has produced excess power, it is injected into the grid, from which other consumers can use it.
