People often assume that having solar panels means having electricity even when the power goes off.  If there's a power outage, solar panels will continue to work. Whether you can harness the energy they are producing, and how much of that energy you can use, will depend on the type of system you have installed.  The only way to understand solar panels and how they can work for you is to talk to a solar panel expert.  For that we highly recommend Rochester Solar Technologies.

Rochester Solar Technologies is a New York based solar and wind energy company with headquarters in Victor, NY and offices in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse. As a division of O'Connell Electric Company, they specialize in solar electric installations for residential and commercial customers.
