What happens during an outage?

In the case of a power outage, your solar energy system will shut off if connected to the utility grid. This is for safety, as the system could backfeed and cause injuries to linemen working to repair the outage. If you want to continue producing energy during a blackout, you can look into purchasing a solar battery. Having a battery means you will continue to have power even during an outage. Check pricing to determine if this is a cost-effective option for your needs
