Once we have calculated our power needs and decided the wattage of solar panels we need, it is time to select the appropriate solar inverter. As mentioned in my previous post, solar panels product DC current, which needs to be converted to AC to run our appliances.
What is the difference between solar inverter and a traditional inverter?
Solar inverter has inbuilt solar charge controller, which is needed to charge the batteries from generated solar power. If you already have a traditional inverter, you can purchase a charge controller and use the existing one for solar power setup. No need to buy a solar inverter.
Latest solar hybrid inverters have an option to charge batteries from mains if there is not enough solar power is produced.
