Grid Interactive question
I have 1850 watts of solar panels and a Xantrex xw solar charge controller running 24 volts. I would like to get an inverter that can feed my house the power that it needs during the day without using the grid, unless there is more demand than the output of the panels. I want any extra power to be charging my batteries, not grid tying. I have a smart meter that wont turn backwards. So I loose any power that is feeding back into the grid. As the sun sets , I would like the batteries to supply the house loads until it drops to a low voltage setting. Then the grid will supply all house loads for the rest of the night, until the morning where the cycle starts again. What kind of inverter, if any, will do what I am asking? I am looking at 1500 watts of new panels and 48 volt battery pack. I just want to make sure that I get the right inverter and then I will match the other components to it.
