Top 4 Best & Affordable Hybrid Inverters in 2023

Top 4 Affordable Hybrid Inverters
Table of Contents

With the latest announcement of stage 6 load shedding South Africans are now looking for more affordable backup power solutions. 

There are quite a few Hybrid Solar Inverters on the market but most of them are completely out of budget for most South Africans looking to go off the grid. 

Fortunately, Off Grid Power Solutions (Part of Goscor Power Products) offers a range of high-quality and reliable hybrid inverters for sale without breaking the bank. 

If you found this page it means that you already know what a hybrid inverter is, if not here is a quick explanation:

A hybrid solar inverter converts DC (direct current) electricity produced by the solar panels into usable AC (alternating current) electricity for your home or business. It then manages the flow of energy between the solar panels, batteries, and the grid, depending on the energy demands and availability. 

This enables you to use solar power even when the sun is not shining, and store excess energy for later use.

Here are our picks on the top 4 affordable hybrid inverters

What can I power with a solar inverter?

For the purpose of this example, we will assume the use of an inverter with a maximum power output of 1 kW (1000 W), as well as a battery. However, we will focus exclusively on the inverter’s peak output and disregard the battery’s role in the scenario.

Product Wattages may differ by product brand and specifications.

ProductWattageComment
LED Light5wYou will be able to run 200 x5w LED Lights
1.7L Kettle1850wYou will not be able to run this kettle as the wattage is higher than our inverter max output.
50” QLED 4k TV145wYou will be able to run 6 4k TVs
335L Fridge240wYou will be able to run 4 fridges.

How do I choose the best size inverter for my house or business?

Choosing the most suitable inverter size for your setup will largely depend on your power consumption. To determine the appropriate inverter size for your home or business, the most straightforward approach is to calculate your total power usage.

Example: If you run 20 LED lights that require 5w of power, you will be consuming a total of 100w of power. (5w x 20 LED Lights = 100w)

By adding up all of your appliances you can easily determine what size inverter you require. You should also take note that not all of the appliances will be running at the same time. 

For most households, a 5kw hybrid inverter will be sufficient. 

Can my hybrid inverter work without a battery?

A hybrid inverter can operate with or without a battery, so it is not strictly necessary to have a battery for a hybrid inverter to function.

However, the main purpose of a hybrid inverter is to integrate renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, with the electrical grid, and to store excess energy in a battery for later use. 

Without a battery, the excess energy produced by renewable sources will be sent back to the electrical grid, which may or may not be financially beneficial for the system owner, depending on the local regulations and electricity rates.

Therefore, while it is not required to have a battery for a hybrid inverter to function, it is recommended to have one to fully utilize the potential of the system and maximize the benefits of using renewable energy sources.

Can I install the inverter myself?

The installation of an inverter depends on various factors, such as the type of inverter, its size, the wiring required, and the electrical load you intend to power.

It is important to note that an inverter installation can be a complicated and potentially dangerous process, especially for larger systems or those that require extensive wiring.

For this reason, it’s always recommended to have a licensed electrician or a professional installer do the installation to ensure it’s done safely and correctly. The electrician will also provide you with a COC certificate.

A professional installer can also ensure that the inverter is properly sized and wired to meet the specific electrical requirements of your home or business. Additionally, many manufacturers including Off Grid Power Solutions require professional installation to keep their warranties valid.
