    So I am Assuming that the devastating solar flares that nasa has warned IS coming in the next 2 years would just fry all solar panels? Since the falling magnetic particles can destroy our grid(Hey Tesla theeres your wireless power transmission that you wanted to use as our infrastructure)..

    So I assume all our grid ties would be fried but wind turbines would not be destroyed assuming it was only one large blast of electrons??

    Yes this is a very deep thought and has already happened on a small scale :ugeek:

    Sounds like the fastest arriving storm took 17 hours to reach us so in theory we would have a warning to cover our panels and unhook them from the grid correct?

    Then if you were totally disconnected from the grid...You could rune a true sine wave inverter into a circuit and you r grid ties would read its "heartbeat pulse and fire up feeding your panel :geek: :ugeek:
