I’ve found a visual labor of love (low production values with good info) that explains the basics of how solar panels work in your home. In about a minute, this video below explains simple net metering and how the grid is used as a sort of battery for your solar panels.

So if you’re still confused about solar, see this video first, and then see my posts on inverters, net metering and time of use.
