It finally happened. The grid went down over about a ten square mile area this morning. However my fridge continued humming away using the battery pack and I could still make a fresh pot of coffee just as though there was no problem at all. The only concession I made was to switch the fish tank over from grid power to solar power so the little fishies could stay swimming. Power was only down a couple hours but it made me chuckle to see all the solar homes in the area that were without power because they are grid tied. Humorously enough(at least to me), one of my neighbors is having additional grid tied solar installed on his house right at this moment.
