Argument: Solar electric systems can be tied into electric grid
- Debate: Solar energy - pro argument.
Kate Davidson. "Let the sun shine in ; The case for solar power heats up". Monitor. 2005 - "solar electric systems: They can be tied into the electric grid. That means that on cloudy days, when the panels aren't satisfying a home's demand, the house can receive backup electricity from a utility. And on sunny days, when a home is not using all the energy the panels are producing, the energy is dumped into the grid for other electric customers to use. The utility gives the homeowners credit for the excess energy by turning back their meters."
