Hybrid Inverters

Hybrid inverters do it all: they function as an off-grid inverter, delivering power from a battery bank; function as a grid-tie inverter so you can sell or net-meter your renewable energy system’s excess electricity production; and automatically switch from grid-tie to off-grid mode to prevent blackouts when the grid goes down.

Unlike an off-grid inverter, which constantly stores excess renewable energy in batteries, a hybrid inverter stores excess electricity only when necessary (or when you tell it to). A hybrid inverter gives you complete control over your renewable energy system’s power – use it, store it, or feed it to the grid. It’s the most advanced inverter type available, and it may be more than you need. If you aren’t sure, give our Tech Desk a call at 800-919-2400.

"Modern brand-name inverters are extremely reliable. The household-size models we sell have failure rates well under 1%. Efficiency averages about 85% - 95% for most models, with peaks at up to 97%."
