No, Orison is not a grid tied device. Orison has specifically been designed not to backfeed onto the grid. In this respect it is similar to any other plug-and-play appliance. Before a grid tied power device that exports energy to the grid, such as solar inverters, is installed you are required to notify the power company and receive an interconnect agreement. Orison, however does not fall into this category as we do not export energy.
