This question was posted on a different forum and no one answered it. I'm hoping someone can here. I heard rumors that if your system is tied to the grid that if the grid goes down, so does your power... no matter what happens with your panels. I thought it was a technical issue so I talked to a buddy that works for the electric company. He said that it is a safety issue. That when the power is out, the utility company needs to know there isn't any power being fed into the grid or their workers will get killed (thinking power is off, but then getting zapped when solar panels are feeding back in). Is this true? If it is, I wonder why people bother with buying grid-tied solar. I wonder if they don't think about this problem.
