Since most homes are a grid tie system the solar shuts down when the power goes out. I wonder if home owners facing extended outages are finding ways around that?

Is there a way around it in an emergency?

I'd imagine in a solar powered house there is a provision to disconnect from the grid tie system and go totally independent if needed.

A good read on the issue = http://energyinformative.org/grid-ti...solar-systems/
