The American Gridtie Independence 3000 allows you to make use of your existing gridtied solar panel array(s) when the grid is down. It can be paired, though AC coupling, with a gridtie system with a maximum of 3000 watts of solar panels.

The American Gridtie Independence 3,000 watt Backup Power Package enables a change from grid dependence to grid independence.

The package includes a Magnum MS4448PAE sinewave inverter, inverter remote controller, battery monitor, white battery enclosure with 2 shelves, eight UPG 200 aH batteries, cabling for inverter and maintenance-free AGM batteries.

The Magnum inverter is on "standby" until the utility company goes down. With any interruption in the grid power, the Magnum inverter comes alive to create a local grid inside your home or building. Your gridtie inverter will continue to operate with full output to allow normal operation of your critical loads. When grid-power returns and stabilizes for 5 minutes, the Magnum inverter defaults back to the grid to keep your critical loads running. Meanwhile, the gridtied solar panels never know the difference.

See the Battery Add On below to turn your grid tie system into an off grid system that will power your home in style.

This is essentially a small offgrid power system. Read Load Evaluation Worksheet to understand how to determine which critical loads you will be able to power. If you need to expand capacity you can add more solar panels and batteries, and those will qualify for an additional tax credit.
