How do I decide which system is right for me?
For protection from long outages, include a generator or solar panels in your Xantrex system. Shorter outages can be handled by a battery-only system. Solar panels are significantly more expensive than a generator, but can provide year-round electric bill savings and require no fuel or maintenance.
Xantrex top-of-the-line systems, using sine-wave SW Series inverters, come in three power output levels and integrate easily with a generator for automatic starting and system recharging. Several lower-cost Xantrex systems are intended primarily as battery-only systems. Your Xantrex dealer can help you select the system that best meets your needs and answer any additional questions.
