Solar Electric Systems just can’t be beat when it
comes to Grid Tied or Emergency Power. Quiet, no fuel,
minimal maintenance, and fully automatic.
A Grid-Tied batteryless system will only produce power
for your home, when the gird is on, thereby reducing
what you buy from the utility. When the grid goes down,
your solar panels/inverter will stop producing power.
This protects the grid from being energized by an
inverter that is “islanding”, that is producing power
and sending it out to the loads in the immediate
vicinity of the inverter, such as your neighbors. It is
unsafe to energize the grid when the utility is down and
all sine wave inverters we sell are certified by UL and
IEEE to protect against “islanding”

An Emergency Power system (it has batteries)
using a Sine Wave inverter, will still produce
power to lower your consumption from the
utility, (after the batteries have been
charged), and depending on the inverter, you may
even be able to “sell” power, spinning your
meter backwards, (which creates a credit for
you).But when the grid fails, you will still
have power to run the selected loads in your
home, from the batteries, until they are
discharged. Now when the grid fails, the lights
will stay on and you do not need to immediately
start your generator. Depending on battery size
and your load, the battery may provide hours, or
days, of Emergency Power, w/o needing to start a
will charge the batteries during the day, and the
inverter can also charge the batteries using utility or
