Were Smart Managment Modules used to shut down solar system in the event of a power outage available in 2016?

Thanks in advance.

SMMs are not to be used for solar disconnect, full stop. Needs to be a more positive shutoff than that.

SMM's have been around for a while, but like Birken said, should not be used to disco solar... If they fail, your solar remains connected to the gen and bad things can happen...
