So, how do solar panels work when the grid is down with and without storage?

One of the most consistent trends in photovoltaic (PV) technology has been the steady increase of power output ratings of solar modules. This increase in module power output is the result of advances in material science and the R&D efforts of both mono- and polycrystalline module producers, as well as the introduction and maturation of bifacial modules. Today, the average power output of monocrystalline modules is 375 W, and around 415 W for bifacial modules.

As a result, a growing number of Americans are turning to backup power during severe weather to keep their homes running.
