Inverters

An inverter is one of the most important pieces of equipment in a solar energy system. It's a device that converts direct current (DC) electricity, which is what a solar panel generates, to alternating current (AC) electricity, which the electrical grid uses.

Grid Tied

A grid-tie inverter converts direct current (DC) into an alternating current (AC) suitable for injecting into an electrical power grid. Grid-tie inverters are used between local electrical power generators: solar panel, wind turbine, hydro-electric, and the grid.

Hybrid

Stores excess solar energy during the day to be used in the evening to increase self-sufficiency. Backup mode - Functions like a normal solar inverter when the grid is connected and automatically switches to backup power mode during a grid outage.

Off Grid

Off-grid inverter needs a battery bank to function. Here's how it works: your solar panels feed DC power into the batteries. Then your inverter takes that power and “inverts” it, creating AC power for your home.
