    Would you say that if I built my own house and wired at least half of it myself, it would be fairly easy to do?

    Depends on what it is you're wiring. Keep in mind that at least some portions of the grid-tied system, your power company will require a certified installer.

    I'm figuring/hoping I could do all the stuff to my panel and hire someone to do the stuff at the meter. Or maybe the power Cord would do that here idk.

    Yeah, I don't think you should have any issues wiring the panels to the charger/inverter. The only thing the power company is worried about, is making sure the inverter doesn't send power into the grid, if the grid is down, and their workers are working on it, hence the need for certified installer.

    Everything I've looked at so far uses "micro inverters". So I guess that's better.

    I think you mean micro charge controllers?

    That micro inverter tech is the newest cool thing if you are doing a grid tie in.

    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.
