    It depends on the type of system you purchase if the lights go out and you have a
    Solar power system with Battery back up -yes/lights
    Solar panels with No Battery back up -no/ lights (most common)

    All systems by code must disconnect from the grid on a loss of AC power from JCPL
    If you spend big $$$ and get the system that includes battery backup and inverters you will have power as long as your backup batteries have enough charge in them to run inverters to make ac voltage for your home until the power company corrects their problem

    Hope that helps

  2. Do you know what caused this power outage?

    Also, the day before, our power went out 6 different times, though it went back on within 30 seconds or less.

  3. We didn’t know what to do in the dark, so we went shopping. This blackout cost us, because we bought things we didn’t really need, just because something caught our eyes and the price was right.
