YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> There are a few things you need to know if you are getting a 3-phase solar inverter and expect to add a battery later. If your home has a three-phase supply and you do not want or need micro-inverters then my recommendation is to use a three-phase solar inverter over a single-phase model. A three-phase solar inverter  takes DC electricity from solar panels, chops it up and sends it out as AC electricity shared across a three-phase supply. Most homes in Australia have a single-phase electricity supply. This means that they have one live wire coming in from the grid. This means three-phase homes can pull more power from the grid.  Handy for particularly big loads such as a: And of course a three-phase supply means you can send much more solar energy back into the grid compared to single-phase (three to six times as much depending on your local DNSP rules). Carefully (don’t touch anything!) look in your switchboard. Count the ‘poles’ on your main switch or meter isolator. If you have single-phase you’ll only have one. Three-phase ho...
