How can I prepare for rolling blackouts in my area?
Solar power is one of the ways that federal and local governments are looking to improve the ability of the power grid to handle spikes in demand.
Also, solar-powered homes reduce the demand for power on the grid and can provide excess power to the grid.
Do solar panels work in a blackout?
Solar panels alone won't work during a power outage—but when paired with solar battery storage, they can. See how solar battery storage keeps your solar systems working during an outage with reliable, renewable solar power, and why we need clean energy now more than ever
While solar panels alone do not work during a power outage, when paid with a solar battery storage system would keep your solar panels working during an outage. Sunrun's Brightbox battery storage system will divert excess solar energy your panels create to your battery and backup panel, allowing you to power essential appliances and the most important rooms in your home.
