Get the most out of your solar power system with the SolarLink Transfer Switch. In the event of a power outage, many PV systems shut down to prevent dangerous back-feeding of the utility lines. If these systems did not shut down, solar panels could energize the utility lines, creating an extremely dangerous situation for line-workers.
The SolarLink avoids this issue by automatically disconnecting from the utility grid when utility power is lost. Once disconnected, turn on an off-grid inverter to connect your solar power to your home during the outage. While your neighbors sit in the dark waiting for utility power to be restored, you will be able to live comfortably as utility power is being restored.
Additionally, many utility companies charge more for power based on the time of the day. Often peak rates happen in the afternoon when many are returning from work and demand for energy is high. The SolarLink allows you to avoid paying these high rates by letting you disconnect from the grid whenever you would like. The decision to rely solely on solar power during peak hours allows you to potentially save hundreds of dollars per year on your electricity bills.
The SolarLink will be available in a socket-based or surface mount configuration.
