    if you shut your main breaker off your inverter will shut down.the inverter has to see power in your outlet to operate.

    Hi Jeff, its about time someone did vids the right way. Simple but very explanatory. My question is when the power from the power company go out could you shut the main breaker off and then resume using your own power source. If not short of a battery set up what do you need? Having your own power is kind of the point during outages.

    Jeff, great job explaining things in your vids. When the power is out from the power company you say this shuts down. I suppose that is for safety to the lineman??? What if you shut your main breaker off? Can you then resume powering your own stuff?

    they are for wind and solar.you don’t tie them into a battery bank.they plug into a gfi outlet only.

    Hey Jeff you are very informative, can you tell me if you can tie a grid tie inverter into a battery bank fed by your wind generator or are they just for solar use? Thank you for your time.

    it drains the batteries down to 14 volts then the inverter shuts off.
    we have a voltage regulator that replaces the batteries coming out.this will solve the problem.

    Hey jeff one question. when we run our turbines through batteries what happens when the turbine is not turning .does it drain the batteries untill the GTI shuts down then come back on only when turbine spins thanks for your time

    NO YOU CANNOT plug your turbine into the killowatt meter in a wall outlet.you’ll get electrocuted,and a fire will result.

    if you have wound your own coils and made your own motor (3 phase) for a VAWT could you plug that kilowatt meter into a wall and then plug your turbine into it directly and see how much it’s putting out?

    normally you you have 2 wires from your turbine,positive and negative,just hook them to the inverter.sometimes you have to run a turbine thru 2 12 volt batteries in series to get 24 volts,the inverters start at 14 volts.the 2 batteries are to protect the inverter from voltage spikes from the turbine unless you use a small turbine like a 200 watt job.

    great job in showing how it work Jeff!
    Can you show us how to do that with the wind turbines as well?

    With the grid tie hooked up and running does it accordingly reduce the electric meter tabulation?
