DC to AC Inverter Products and Information

The storage batteries used in alternative energy sytems store DC (direct current) power. Most modern appliances operate on AC (alternating current) power. DC to AC power inverters allow you to enjoy the convenience of AC power while using renewable energy power sources.

We have inverters available from Samlex, Xantrex, StatPower and Power Star, in both true sine wave and modified sine wave models. One of our inverters should meet your needs, whether you just want a microwave in your summer cabin, or you have a year-round alternative energy system for a large home.

True sine wave inverters produce the highest quality inverted power, as good as or better than utility power. Any appliance will run properly on a quality true sine wave inverter. Modified sine wave inverters are less expensive, and will run most basic appliances very well.

Check with your appliance manufacturers to see which type of inverter you need, or contact our support staff. We’ll be glad to help you decide what size and type of inverter is best for your demands.
