Hi all, I'm just ordering a solar panel/battery system which will be linked to the grid and have become aware of a safety feature called "anti-islanding". As I understand it if the grid goes down then the solar panel/battery system are shut down to prevent electrical current going back into the grid and endangering personnel working on the grid.

The consequence is that should the grid go down you also have no access to your battery or solar panel power.

I'm guessing this is a feature of the inverter and was wondering if there are any available that would isolate you from the grid but not turn off your in house power.
