SolarTown’s selection of solar inverters gives you several options for converting energy from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) through an electrical switching process. Solar inverters are necessary in most solar panel installations. SolarTown also carries all of the inverter accessories you require, including wiring, fuses, and breakers.
You can choose from grid-tie or off-grid solar inverters. Grid-tie inverters generally operate without batteries, allowing you to feed your excess energy directly into your local utility grid. Most utilities accommodate net metering, requiring that your utility reimburse you for this energy.
Off-grid inverters are best suited for on-the-go or remote solar applications, as well as for those homeowners living where no net metering program is in place. With off-grid inverters, your solar energy is fed into batteries where it is stored until it is used.
