Off-grid inverters are essential for harnessing all that hard-earned renewable energy your system will produce. Providing the interface from your battery bank to standard AC plugs, many of our off-grid inverters also accept an AC source from a generator or even the power grid, doubling as battery chargers to keep your deep cycle batteries charged and ready. As such, with the addition of a battery pack and DC load center, these inverters make for a highly effective "UPS" (uninterruptible power supply) to keep select circuits hot in the event of a power failure. This can be a far more cost-effective technique than attempting to power your whole house from a battery bank. While these inverters can't bank energy on the grid, they can be used as the UPS, and with the addition of a transfer switch and a grid-tie inverter with a "secure power" feature, you'll be the only one on your block not running a generator in case of extended power outages!
