Those inverters are garbage. Do not buy anything like that.
Thanks. The more YouTube videos I watch about them, the less I want one.

I think I will abandon solar for now. I learned that our utility has 30 MW of nearby solar farms and over 3,000 rooftop connections. Me messing with a few panels probably isn't worth it.
Get your self some roof top panels with a sunnyboy secure power supply grid tie inverter. That way you can have 120v 60hz AC power when the power goes out as long as the sun is out.
Best of all it doesn't use batteries.
Just don't get ripped off.

I think it's possible. I have level 1 too. By the way, I found some interesting and useful review about solar cars https://websolarguide.com/how-much-do-solar-cars-cost/
