It’s a term you’ve probably heard before. But exactly what is an inverter?

Here’s a quick and easy explanation. 

An inverter is a backup power unit. In Ethiopia, most people use a generator. An inverter accomplishes the same goal, and is a viable alternative to a generator. 

Whereas a generator runs on fuel, an inverter runs on a battery (or multiple batteries depending on the size of your inverter). 

The inverter’s job is to take the stored energy from a battery (which is DC power) and convert it the type of power which your house/office runs on (which is AC power). 

Inverter vs Generator

They accomplish the same goal, but inverters and generators are very different. For example, an inverter is much smaller, requires no fuel, and is environmentally friendly. There are a lot of reasons to choose an inverter instead of a generator in Ethiopia.
