I am looking for a small grid tie solar inverter to take care of all the little loads on the house i.e. 300watts (house in stand by).  I like the idea of using a small grid tie inverter like the soladin plug in on or this

I am happy with only 100-300 watts and dont want to island the circuits as some of them have high loads when we are in.  In the winter I hope to have the Lister put putting away in the shed which will take care of the larger loads, its just the Summer time when the lights are off and someones home lol.

Advice welcome.

Check what your nominal mains voltage is, as this is 230VAC +5% which is only 241.5VAC. I know mine sometimes will cut out and go through its startup phase if it gets to this voltage.

You may need to check it regulary throughout the day for a whole week in case your supply is affected by industrial loading.

So if your voltage is close you may find it works OK in the week but not at weekends when the factories are closed.
