Description

One of the  most reputable inverters on the market  the Goodwe ES 4.5kW Hybrid inverter just does it all.
Ahead of its time, the Goodwe came on the market just as Hybrid inverters were becoming popular, with  thousands of units sold every year  and with little to no issues it's the SolarAdvice's go-to when suggesting an affordable, reliable and robust option.
What makes it so special?
The biggest advantages are the ability to have  essential and non-essential loads , this enables you to add one essential load that consists of the lights, fridge and appliances you want as a first priority. The non-essential load can consist of bigger appliances such as washers, dryers, geysers or pumps for when you have excess power coming from the Solar array it can start powering those as a second priority.  This is perfect for those wanting to run an energy sufficient household .
You also have 2 MPPT inputs that allow you to have  2 solar arrays independent from each other , this is especially good for sun coverage on roof structures that get different exposure strength during the day. Eliminating the inefficient panel issue you can have with the single string option.
Not only is the inverter fanless making it silent, but you can also install it outside undercover in a dry area out of the way.

How Does The Hybrid Inverter Work?

The Hybrid inverter gives you the best of both worlds, not only does it act like a Grid-Tied inverter, but it also gives you the freedom of an Off-Grid inverter.

Often when wanting to go solar we think of  "Off-Grid" and independence , but what if you can do that and fall back to the grid if for a period or even a moment you needed extra power? Then a Hybrid inverter is an  ideal solution , you can have your cake and eat it too, plus it's cheaper!

Here are the different arrangements that you can have:

 

As you can see you can use this inverter as a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) for when the grid goes down, or you can use it as Solar solution and you can use the backup system for night time use. Perfect for those looking to start with a backup in order to deal with Load Shedding, then upgrade to a Solar solution later by adding panels.

 If you're looking for an automated solution that you will never need to manually intervene with, this is your perfect power companion .
