Like Chris, we're grid tied, so we just run the meter backward during the day. At night, we're drawing power like anyone else. We're also using Solaredge inverters with their panel modules that adjust to constant voltage. Enphase is another microconverter products, but it converts straight to AC and doesn't use an inverter at the meter. Both have the advantage of better efficiency particularly when some panels are shaded.

If you're in San Diego, I've got a killer installer. Anyway, go big. This is the last chance to be grandfathered into net metering. And don't pay more than $3/watt. An 8.4 kWh system should be under $14,000 before the 30% tax credit, net $9,800, and that's 2014 prices. Our production for a 8.4 kWh system works out to a monthly average of about 1,100 Kwh. Prices keep coming down.
