Mage Solar has released a 3 kW solar kit with both on-grid and off-grid capabilities, enabling it to be used as an emergency standalone energy source during grid outages.

Geared mainly towards the residential home or small commercial market, the kit contains the company's Powertec Plus modules, a pitched-roof mounting product, and balance-of-system components. It also includes an inverter with a charge controller unit to charge an existing battery system or to directly provide electricity to appliances, as well as other devices and communication equipment, in order to stay connected and operational after natural disasters.

The UL-listed device is especially designed to quickly respond to any power requirement and continue to provide electricity from the PV array to the home even when the grid is unavailable, the company explains. Traditional grid-tied PV systems usually lack this feature.
