How to go off-grid with a grid-tie inverter
Updated: May 7
Do you own an on-grid-solar power plant or you are planning to have one? And you have lots of questions regarding the operation of a grid-tied solar inverter. One of the questions that lots of people ask is whether can a grid-tie inverter be used off-grid.
In this blog, I will guide you on how you can go off-grid with a grid-tie inverter.
I have been in the solar industry since 2015 and I have learned lots of things about grid-tied inverters that most people don’t know.
But first I am going to answer one of the most creative questions I have ever heard which is “Can a grid-tie inverter be used off-grid?”.
A solar grid tie inverter requires a reference power source to produce electricity from solar panels. In absence of Gird power, generators (or Home inverters) can be used as a reference power source but they need protection from the excess power generated by the solar power plant. Excess power is generated when the load demand is less than the power generation. With ZED Advance you can protect your generator (or Home inverters) from the excess power and use your grid tie inverter off the grid.
I am installing ZED Advance since 2016 and never found any complaints from any of my clients. ZED Advance is compatible with most of the grid-tie inverters available.
The performance of ZED Advance is beyond acceptance I never need to replace any of my devices.
Here is the step by step process of
How to go off-grid with a gird-tie inverter.
