Solar Grid Tie Inverter Wiring Diagram
In this simple solar to grid tie inverter hookup, follow these directions:
Wire all the solar panels in parallel, positive to positive and negative to negative. Then, connect them to the disconnect box.
Attach the red positive wire to the positive post on the grid tie inverter (GTI) and the negative black wire to the negative post. Never connect a live wire to the grid tie inverter.
Make sure the disconnect box is in the off position (handle out) before connective wires to the grid tie inverter so not to cause a spark and short out the inverter.
Then, plug the inverter into any standard outlet.
When the sun is on the panels, the lights will blink back and forth on the grid tie inverter, this means the unit is working.
That's it! Free electricity!
