In my case StormWatch seems to keep my PW reserve at 100% (instead of my normal 20%) so PW are not used when grid is on (like at night when PW's power the house)Most people have PWs configured this way because it's a requirement of the tax credit. However, Storm Watch is intended to be the exception to this rule, allowing grid charging for adverse events.
So during a power outage - should I physically turn off PWs at say 20% to preserve power for restart when solar is available? - Is it best to just use switch on sides of PWs? And then stagger startup load using breakers in my electrical panel?
