Inverters


Micro Inverters

Pros for micro inverters:
1) Very scalable, you can start with just a couple of panels and add more at any time.
2) Panels don’t have to face the same direction.
3) Panels don’t have to match.
4) Installation is very simple.

Victron | 48v Multiplus-II Inverter Charger | 3000 va Output 120v
If you want to build a simple, low cost, battery backup system or a 120V off grid system for a boat, RV or cabin, this is a great solution. I’m using this inverter controller for my home backup and it works great. It was easy to install and is easy to expand to 120V/240V by adding an additional inverter later.

Victron 48V MultiPlus-II UL1741 3kVA 120V Inverter 35A Charger
This is the exact same inverter as the standard Multiplus II except it is UL listed. If you need to get an inspection, you will want this version. One difference between the two is it has a larger wiring compartment, which is worth the extra $70 in my opinion.

Victron | Quattro Inverter Charger | 48v Input | 10000va Output 120v
The Victron Quattro 10000 is 96% efficient with only 60 watts of idle draw! Competing “transformerless” inverters claim higher efficiencies, but they fail the moment they are presented with the inrush of a motor load, such as air conditioners, and air compressors.
