Grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are gaining popularity as consumers look to embrace renewable energy technology and lower energy bills. Traditional grid-tied solar PV can meet electrical loads in a home when solar radiation levels enable adequate generation of electricity. The amount of solar generation available to a home varies directly with the amount of solar radiation at any point in time. This approach has helped many reduce electricity consumption, but the impact on demand reduction has not been significant. This is largely due to the fact that residential demand happens between 5:00 pm to midnight during weekdays; a time when solar PV generation is not always available.
