      Do PV solar panels still work if there is a power cut? Will the system restart automatically once the power returns and reinstate service?

      If the electricity mains cuts out, the inverter would also cut out too. This is because if an engineer is working on the network, you don’t want self-generators sending a current his way.

      I had a power cut when I switched my fuse box back on the light on the PV solar panels unit was red. I don’t know how to reset the unit so I have a green light. Can you help, please?

        Hi Maureen

        Different inverter brands may vary, but this video may help:

        Also, check your documentation, (if you haven’t already) as your inverter instructions may be provided, or contact details for your inverter manufacturer’s helpline may be provided.

        Hope this helps.
