Well the first reason you wouldnt see any power, might be because there is nothing there for the solar panel to store what it makes, "Batteries"
Then you get into a lot of other things, like the amount of power it is making, does the solar panel go to a DC to AC Power Inverter. It must then be
regulated in how much Volts it is letting through the Power Inverter, So If you we're to grab those panels, you would still need to know what to do
with the power it is making, Ive found that an easy method is using some of those battery backups that allow you to close your computer and such
already has most of the components in them, to make a very usable power inverter, cant exactly show you how, because most are different, but will work
Good luck. I think this storm might actually wake some people up, that the power is not a guarantee, and must be looked at with respect, If you want
power all the time Make it yourself.
