Inverters - Solar, Generator and Grid -Power in a box- for load shedding
Get off the Eskom power Grid
Get off the Eskom power grid by connecting you house or business to solar energy. Power your entire house including your fridges, pool pump, and smaller heaters by using a hybrid inverter and Deep Cycle batteries.
You need a solar inverter or a hybrid inverter to connect to a solar panel.
Hybrid inverters allow you to connect to the grid, a generator or to a solar panels.
Up to 6 hybrid inverters can be connected together to have 30KVA supplied to your house or factory. Usually only one 5KVA hybrid inverter is needed to a standard house.

Solar power for houses and factories
Solar panels and deep cycle batteries will provide your home or business with enough power during the day.
"Power in a box" inverter or battery centres
Battery centers provide power in a box. It is clean noiseless boxes which provides enough power for a TV and several lights. You can get 4 hours or more from the Power Box / Battery Center.
The advantage is that no installation is required and it is portable. The battery centers also have a solar power input to charge the batteries by means of solar panels during the day.
Please search for "Battery centers" on this site.
Deep cycle batteries
Deep cycle batteries are required for all inverters. The batteries should last 7 years or more.
Solar panel break even point
The repayment period, by using solar panels, is estimated at 7 years taking costs escalations into account.
2400VA / 1440W inverter with 2x 12V 100Ah battery
This is ideal for a LED / LCD TV and a light. A 55" LED LCD or OLED TV consumes up to 100Watts (0.45Amps). The Battery will run that TV for 440 hours and more.
3000 VA / 2400W pure sine wave inverter
This inverter will run a fridge, a TVs, a few lights and small appliances (kettle or toaster)
These 5000VA can be connected together to expand the power being delivered for larger households. 9 units provides a whopping industrial 45,000VA!
5000 VA / 5000W / 8000VA / 8000W pure sine wave inverter
Earth leakage problems on parallel inverters
Ensure that all communication and current sharing cables are connected as in the instructions (both communications cables and both current sharing cables), update the firmware so that all inverters are running the same version.
Inverter Live and Neutral output wires cannot be connected to any of the input wires. Neutral wires can be a problem as electricians might take shortcuts in their installations.
Are inverters reliable?
A 150l geyser that uses 3000Watts will take 2 hours and 40 minutes to heat water to 65 degrees. This places a heavy load on a 4000W inverter, especially if other devices are used as well. Geysers are not recommended on inverters.
