Is it okay to install grid tie solar panel system, or would it make the power company very upset?

I don't know if it's legal to install solar panel system for my home to save electricity. We already spent over $400.00 a month and thinking about getting 280watt solar panels with 500watt inverter to save alot of money. Is it illegal? Would it upset the power company that could come after us?
