As consumers and service facilitators continue to turn to independent energy sources, primarily wind and sun, to power everything from homes and RVs to entire communities, parks, plus medical and military structures, energy inverters, or adaptors play an important role in the performance, efficiency and safety of independent energy systems and devices.
Ranging in size and application from simple solar yard lighting to portable and emergency backup systems, energy systems that are not connected to the utility grid share one common factor: a storage battery which collects and releases energy as DC or direct current electricity.
By contrast, municipal electric utility grids run on AC or alternating current, that is, anything that plugs directly into an electrical outlet in your home or business. For practical reasons, alternating energy works better for long distances. Because DC electricity can’t readily be directly utilized in our mobile focused lifestyles, inverters are essential to convert DC into AC electricity.Read More
