Your solar system will turn off at night as there is not enough sunlight to sustain operation. Once the solar radiation is high enough the inverter will start to operate automatically again each morning – it will start off with a self test before feeding the grid with electricity. It is completely normal for inverters to turn off when no power is being produced (i.e. at night).
Your inverter will automatically shut itself off within a few seconds of a blackout, this is a safety feature to avoid the potential of a dangerous “brown-out” in your home and to prevent back feeding into the grid. Therefore even though you have a solar system during a blackout you will not have power available.
Please see our handy checklist which lists the most common reasons why your bill may be higher than you expected.
Please note, your electricity retailer cannot tell you how much power your system has produced, they can only tell you how much power you have bought from and sold back to the grid. They cannot determine/see how much of the power from your system has been used in your home.
Check the solar supply main switch in the switchboard is on – turn it on if it is off
