Grid tied systems are actually very common as they are the only systems
that are cost effective if you live in the US and have local utilities
available at a reasonably low cost per KWH (cost effective because they
use the grid for storage for excess generation) versus having to use very
expensive storage batteries. If you see solar panels on the roof of a home
in a densely populated residential area they likely are a grid tied system.
