Conserve and Go Solar

What happens with my solar when the power goes out?

If you own a solar photovoltaic (PV) system WITHOUT a battery, you are still connected to the grid and your panels will stop working when the power goes out, even if it’s sunny outside. This doesn’t mean your system is broken. This is a safety feature to protect workers from electrical shock while repairing the grid. However, if you have a battery connected to your solar array separate from the grid, your system can continue operating without safety risks to utility professionals. With battery storage, you can also charge your electric vehicle over night. More FAQs on solar PV
