First of all, a safety issue exists for grid connected solar. Due to, if power were to feed onto the grid at a time that the utility was shut down. Therefore, to prevent this, inverters are required to be “utility interactive.” This means they must sense utility power before they produce their own power and feed onto the grid. Most noteworthy is if the utility goes off so does your Solar Power. If power during a blackout/brownout is important to you, contact us for current information regarding battery backup.
