Can I use an on-grid V-TAC solar inverter during a power outage?

No, standard V-TAC on-grid solar inverters are designed to shut down automatically during a power outage for safety reasons. This is done to prevent the exported solar power from potentially endangering utility workers trying to restore the grid. However, with additional equipment such as V-TAC batteries and a backup power system, you can have a V-TAC hybrid inverter that provides power during outages.
