South Miami has a new residential solar mandate,
. . . that solar power be installed in newly built homes, or
. . . those subject to major renovation.

The damage caused by hurricane Irma and the associated grid failures should make solar arrays installations more popular, at least the kind that can be operated standalone.

Doing without grid electricity for a few hours isn't that big of a deal for most people most places, but an extended outage can make places like Florida uninhabitable for some people, as shown by the nursing home deaths reported in the media.

It's not just air-conditioning that's affected, but sewage services and water supply too.

While I'm sure that if the wind damage is severe enough or the flooding deep enough a standalone capable solar might not help, for some it sure would.  See https://insideclimat...-lights-running
