Solar Inverters

Inverters are an important part of any solar installation; they are the brains of the system. Although the inverter’s main job is to convert DC power produced by the solar array into usable AC power, its role is only expanding. Inverters enable monitoring so installers and owners can see how a system is performing.

Inverters can be broadly classified into three major types:


  1. Off-grid/ Standalone Inverters – works independently of the grid and requires battery storage
  2. On-grid/ Grid-tied Inverters – are dependent upon the grid
  3. Hybrid Inverters – incorporate both battery and grid connection and have an inbuilt solar charge controller


While buying an inverter for home & business, here are a few basic things that you should look at:


  1. Types
  2. Efficiency of the Inverter
  3. Features
  4. Warranties
  5. Pricing
