To get optimum price and efficiency from an Inverter, It must be large enough to handle the total amount of watts you will be using at one time. Start by listing all of the appliances etc that you use and their wattages in our Online Solar Energy Calculator. This form will display the number of watt hours you use in a day. In order to properly size an inverter, consider which of those loads you will be using simultaneously and add up their wattages only. For example, if you will be using the 1500 watt microwave at the same time you will be running 100 watts of lighting and also running a refrigerator that will draw 500 watts of instantaneous power, you will need an inverter that can handle at least 2100 watts (1500 + 100 + 500). Once you have identified a minimum wattage, you will select an inverter that has the same nominal voltage as your battery bank (12, 24, or 48 VDC).
