=== Can I be totally independent from the utility?===
AmyDepending on the size and demand of your home, Lindsayyou could install an array which would power all of your home's electrical needs. However, you would not recieve payments for the electricity you produce because you must be connected to the utility grid in order to reap the benefits of the feed-in tariff program. This way, the grid can absorb the power produced by your solar array and there is no need for costly batteries to store the energy when your home is not using it. The net effect, however, is the same because the renewable energy produced by your array displaces other, dirtier forms of energy.
