So I have all these solar panels generating a stack of electricity, with a box that converts the electricity to mains/grid power.
Each Monday unless there's been a heap of rainy days, I will run all my servers and Internet gear directly from the solar panels for 24 hours.
This serves a few purposes!

First, it will save me around $2.75 for the day :)
Second, it means I am more green and friendly to the planet
Third, it means I can test the setup regularly and in the event of a real emergency I have a guaranteed 24 or more hours of electricity.
And finally, it is just a plain straight up very cool and groovy thing to do :)

There should be no interruptions to service when doing this as there is a UPS system in between mains/grid power and solar power, so when I do the switch over, it won't shutdown anything.

Enjoy the site folks, now partially run by the Australian sun!!
