Q
If the power goes out, will my home system produce electricity?
A

Direct grid-ties systems will not produce power when the grid fails. For safety reasons, your home solar power system will automatically shut off if the power goes out. This is to protect utility workers who might be working on damaged or downed power lines during an outage from being exposed to live electricity. If you need power during times of grid failure battery based systems are available, although costly.
