Inverters

Convert between systems to connect to our network

An inverter is a device that converts current between direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC). DC is created by devices such as solar panels and batteries which is converted by an inverter to provide AC power to devices in your home. An inverter is required if you want to connect to our AC network and sell your excess generation.

Inverters should have safety features that disconnect the generating equipment if there is an outage so that electricity doesn’t backfeed to our staff through the grid when we are trying to fix the issue. They should also regulate the voltage to ensure that our network stays within regulatory limits.

The Clean Energy Council has a list of inverters that meet AS/NZS 4777 and IEC 62109 standards.

Inverters generally connect to the following:

Solar

Harness the power of the sun.

Wind

Harness the power of the wind.

Batteries

Store your energy to use at a better time.
