Solar- can I tie into the electricity generated on a distant outbuilding


Just installed new on grid solar panels with inverter on a distant outbuilding. The outbuilding has no electricity. IS IT POSSIBLE TO TIE INTO THE SOLAR AFTER THE SOLAR GENERATION METER.

Outbuilding Electric configuration is currently solar panels to inverter to solar meter then out to my main service at the house where there is a disconnect and NET metering.

If I understand you correctly, the answer is yes. You must have an AC 120/240 connection to the main panel from your outbuilding since the inverter is there. Ask your solar installer to come back and add some outlets or lights, whatever.
