Morning all,
I'm after a bit of advice before purchasing a new solar array. I've been looking at battery systems for a while but find that many of the hybrid inverters look at the battery unit as back up. Does anyone know or can advise is there such an inverter in the UK that can charge / feed the house during the day and then auto swap over to battery at night; if battery is depleted; could swap back to grid etc.

There seems to be a sol-ark in the US that does this but can't find much info in the uk on this type of principle.

Any help would be appreciated.

You have posted your question in 2 forum areas which makes it unclear what you are trying to do - Off-Grid or Grid-Connected.

Until this is cleared up can everyone just comment on the thread,31413.msg352514/topicseen.html#msg352514

This will make it easier for one of the volunteer moderators to clear up the dual posting as and when they have time.

Thanks RIT, I'll leave this one locked for now, and either delete or unlock later.
