Off-Grid Inverters

Looking to go off grid and power your house with a solar energy system? If you plan on using appliances and lights that use AC (alternating current) electricity you will need an inverter. Solar panels convert sunlight directly into DC electricity which is then stored in deep cycle batteries. In an off-grid solar system it’s the job of an inverter to convert the DC electricity to AC electricity.

We offer a wide variety of off-grid inverters from modified sine wave inverters that are best for simple systems to pure sine wave inverters that necessary for electronics and inductive loads. And we have huge selection of sizes from 100 Watts all the way up to 7000 Watt off-grid inverters.

What's the difference between a modified and pure sine wave off-grid inverter? Read more below or check out the inverter section of our series on going off-grid.

Off-Grid Modified Sine Wave Inverters

  • Best for simplest systems
  • Typically inexpensive
  • Fine for older TVs, incandescent lights, motors with brushes
  • Generally not good with: electronics, audio, induction motors, rechargeable batteries or digital clocks

Off-Grid Pure Sine Wave Inverters

  • Mandatory for grid-tied systems
  • Preferred for off-grid homes or larger solar systems
  • Generally more expensive (but prices continue to fall)
  • Necessary for electronics, florescent lights and dimmers, inductive loads to operate at their best
