Not in all states of the US, but in some. In California, the major utilities will pay you for excess generation, but it's far below the retail rate, so it's never worth it to oversize a system on the basis of thinking extra capacity will pay for itself. Also beware of marginal scams that suggest you can make money in this fashion. It's easy to spot them, because they have slick web pages that promise things too good to be true, if you'll only send them $39.95, $19.95, or whatever for the information.

Yes, while using solar panels, the utility meter will begin to spin backwards and save you money, while the utility company will pay you for the energy you create. Some say it is not worth it, but it saves the money it takes to keep a nuclear power plant running and paying for electronics that can be powered by the Sun. I have built my own solar panels using earth4energy ebooks producing 36 watts each. I recommend if you are interested check out this DIY book on home made powerplants, solar panels, windmills, etc. http://6ba9ce0nhkujnlf4vjyi894o6u.hop.clickbank.net/

Yes, although realistically there's little to spare in a home solar system, keeping your refrigerator running may be more than the solar panels can do on their own. But perhaps in those moments the compressor is not running and noting in the house is on you can return some power. Luckily utilities need more power during the day, but have a surplus at night, street lights were made popular in part just to burn off excess night time capacity from their plants that only have one generation speed.

Yes you can. If you own a solar panel and it produces more energy than your household consumes, then you will get paid for the amount of energy you add back to the power grid. Solar panels are usually so expensive that it takes several years to break even.
