gstar's New TriStar MPPT 600V Controller with DC Transfer Switch was on display at Intersolar north America 2015. This device, along with batteries and other components, can be applied to existing grid-tied solar systems to allow persons to switch on critical backup power in the event of a utility power outage. The vast majority of owners of solar systems have discovered to their dismay, that their existing systems will not work during a grid outage because the system's AC inverter will cease to operate, and power from the solar array is left stranded. Until now, if people wanted backup power, they had to consider purchasing and installing a fuel generator or installing an AC coupled solution, or some other solution that resulted in environmental concerns, excessive costs, or installation complexities. The Morningstar solution represents a clean, quiet, affordable, and scalable solution to this problem.
