The generator is normally fitted with an auto start system that suits solar integration, as the starting & stopping of the generator is controlled by the solar inverter. The purpose of having a backup generator for a solar system is to charge the batteries if they are getting low due to cloudy weather or rain, and some solar systems load share onto the generator if extra power is required. Not every generator is suitable for solar system backup power which is why we recommend discussing your requirements with us when making your decision. Our range of quality 1500rpm diesel generators are designed to give you reliable backup power, as well as being economical to run.
