Plug and Play Solar

II was able to create the title name to this blog as "Plug and Play Solar Grid Tie" however, right under it, I could not type in any content. Not sure how this works at this site but here I go..... Plug and Play Solar is the name of the Google search for automatic news sent to me on my Google account and it should also be the same as "Plug and Play Solar Grid Tie" and I will check to add that search too. This is a short bit about what I wanted to say below:
I starting thinking about a simple Plug and Play Solar Grid Tie system about 11 or more years ago around 2003 because I found out that someone was making a micro inverter that seemed to be on the right track as part of the system. I studied it and found out it was not much of a easy way to use with a Plug and Play Solar Grid Tie later when I finally build my first Solar Grid Tie system on the ground and built a plug and chord that I could use to plug it in. Still not the Plug and Play Solar Grid Tie I wanted because most people are not going to want to hire an electrician to do it that way. They are going to just want to plug it in and get the power added to their uses to lower their electric bill by putting the solar panel so equipped to just plug it in ti what most people call a 110 or 120 outlet meaning that the standard AC outlet is usually that voltage in the USA and the unit would have to automatically sync up with the voltage and frequency of the grid (120 V 60 Hz + or - locally) with the Hz most often found to be 60 and sometimes I see 59.9 on my special meter that I use to measure the output of my now, special gird-tie micro-inverters that I now use to do what I want. 
Did you catch that. Recently in 2011, I came up with a system that would do it. Unfortunately the inverter comes from somewhere other than the USA, unlike Enphase which, to my knowledge, is not building a unit like the first units (17) that I installed on my roof and on to a special outboard unit from my tree deck that also attaches to the roof and provides upper access to my two different mounted methods for the first system which was not plug and play when it was finished and running. It was plug and play during the test phase then later, I got it wired. Now I have a true plug and play that I call PlugInPlay that can be plugged into a standard AC outlet in the USA since 2011 and I have yet to find anyone with a better system or even a true system with all the features I have for my system, not to mention all the details of my designs for advanced systems for each panel so it is a true plug and play panel ready to go and simple to just set out in the sun plug into a standard outlet or extension chord or power strip on any circuit.
