We'll endeavour to update this comparison table frequently as more of these products become available in Australia, and specifications and prices of existing hybrid inverters change.

Please note prices displayed above are our best estimate of retail pricing incl GST, unless specifically noted otherwise – but these are only estimates.

What is a hybrid inverter?

A hybrid inverter (also known as a multi-mode inverter) is capable of managing the electricity output of solar panels and charging a battery system; while also operating with mains grid supply. Given this extended capability, prices tend to be higher than a standard string solar inverter.

Hybrid solar inverters represent a true 'battery ready' inverter setup, as described in our article on the truth about battery ready systems.
