Is it possible/safe to plug photovoltaic electricity into wall socket? Answered
I have a photovoltaic panel and I want to connect it to the AC power line of my house.
To connect it to the electrical panel of the house I should use long wires.
So I thought: "Is it possible to plug it into the nearest wall socket?"
Of course I don't want to put straightway DC from the photovoltaic panel into the AC power line... what I mean is to plug the output from an inverter into the wall socket.
Is the inverter supposed to adjust the phase of its output current to match the mains' phase?
Should I look for a particular kind of inverter?
Thanks for your answers
Doing further research I found that a company sells photovoltaic systems that you can plug into the wall socket.
So in theory it should be doable, but as rickharris pointed out, it seems that it would cost more than I'm ready to spend.
Probably I had better resort to plan B: connecting the solar panel to an inverter, snaking wires through the walls and adding another receptacle to an existing electrical outlet.
Thanks to all of you
