Frequently Asked Questions
While Fafco Solar does not promote the use of fossil fuel burning generators, we realize that it is often a cost effective and desirable solution to utility power outages, particularly during hurricane season. If your home has an existing whole house or critical load generator with a transfer switch (manual or automatic), we can install a grid-tied solar electric system without any problem. The solar electric system will supplement utility power and sell excess power back to the utility company. When an outage occurs, your generator will supply power to your home and the solar energy system will shut down to prevent injury to utility employees who are working to restore power to your neighborhood.
