The Best And Most Robust Inverter On The Market

I work as an electrician and have installed a few different brands of inverters including the Sol-Ark 12k. The Sol-Ark 12k is by far the most technologically advanced and user friendly inverter I’ve installed. It has a charge controller that works with different battery types. It can be integrated with a Tigo transmitter. Has an option for peak shaving and has a option to connect a generator. So when I decided to install a solar system on my own property, I chose Sol-Ark. Also, the tech support is great! I had an issue with the wifi dongle and a five minute call to tech support fixed the problem. Highly recommend Sol-Ark.
