The past year, this solar home generated 102% of its energy needs. The decision was made to tie this home to the electrical grid, however, to keep initial and maintenance costs down. Cost savings came primarily from not having to buy or maintain a bank of storage batteries, as well as a less expensive DC to AC inverter. The cost savings strategies also fit in with a Davis Energy Group goal of trying to make photovoltaic systems more affordable and attractive to the average homebuyer.
