Will solar keep my home powered if the electrical grid goes down?

Will solar keep my home powered if the electrical grid goes down?

Yes — if you install a backup battery system alongside your solar system. Most solar systems use net metering, which funnels excess energy produced by your panels into the electrical grid in exchange for credits to be used later. In order to keep utility line workers safe when they are addressing an outage, all solar systems are designed to automatically shut down when the grid goes down. But if you have solar battery storage, you can keep your electricity running even when the grid is down. This is an ideal alternative to noisy and polluting diesel generators and a wonderful way to be in control of your power in any circumstance.
