If you're like me and don't even know where to begin when it comes to learning about generators, here are the basics of generators as they apply to living off the grid. And please note, this is an extremely basic overview of some of the things you (okay, me) might find useful to know about generators.
Instead, your off grid electricity energy comes from an alternative energy source like wind, or in our case, solar panels and a generator. That's why when you use a generator to power your home systems, you'll need an inverter. An inverter is an electrical device that converts/inverts DC voltage to standard household AC voltage.
