Use your Grid-Tie Solar System During a Blackout

Many people find it ironic that homeowners cannot use their own solar system in the event of a power blackout. This is the case for all grid-tied solar system. This is due to a safety regulation put in place to protect linesmen who are working on the grid from power coming back on from surrounding homes with photovoltaic systems installed.

SMA ‘s line of Sunny Boy grid-tie inverters allow you to have power from your solar system when the grid is down and the sun is shinning. This feature eliminates the need of batteries for energy storage by drawing energy directly from your solar panels. It will supply up to 1500 watts. This is great for refrigerators, fans, powering and charging electronics.
