Will I still have power with my solar system if there is a blackout?

In the case of a power outage, UL code requires that inverters shut down and not produce power for the safety of utility workers. As solar-powered homes are still “grid-tied,” power will shut down. 

However, SUNation does offer the Tesla Powerwall solar storage battery that does allow you to maintain a sustained power supply, day or night. To learn more about the battery and how you can sustain power during a blackout, call us at 631-750-9454 or contact us today.
