In your solar power system, you need inverters to take the low-voltage, high-current signals from the PV panels and convert them into VAC or VAC, which is directly compatible with grid power. Inverters cost around $ per watt, or around $2, for a typical application. From a reliability standpoint, they are generally the weak link [ ]. A good book covering a range of possibilities for retrofitting solar space heating to your home. The page book covers a large number of projects in good detail. More information Out of print, but readily available at libraries or online used book places. Solar Livestock Housing Handbook.
