This is one of the questions that people keep asking which is a better backup system for electricity between solar-inverter system and generator. Ogad Technological Team Lead has come up with some list of advantages why solar-inverter system is a great backup system for electricity against generator. From my research and years of experience using both generator and solar-inverter system i have come to this conclusion on which system is safer, better, reliable, maintenance free and noise free.
However, installing solar-inverter system might be expensive but it worth installing compare to buying a generator that requires a regular fuelling with the increase in fuel. The following are the listed advantages of installing a solar-inverter system to buying a generator.
Solar-Inverter Systems are Safer to Generator
Solar-inverter systems are safer and reliable to use and maintained than generator for backup. When using a generator in house where we have children you will be so careful of where you put your fuel and you can even ask the children to keep away from the generator but it is not for Solar-inverter system. The system is clean and reliable to use. In a country like Nigeria where our fuel price is not stable, you keep spending more on petrol/diesel or storing fuel in your apartment because of scarcity which is very dangerous because fuels are highly flammable. Solar-Inverter system those not require any fuelling. Inverters produce no fumes but generator emits fumes that are dangerous for the health of an individual and also the environment.

Solar-Inverters System have Low Cost Maintenance
Relative to generator, Solar-inverter system is easy to run. Most, if not all generator requires monthly maintenance compare to solar-inverter systems. The cost of professional repairs, regular fuelling and maintenance makes the usage of a generator very expensive. Solar-inverter system requires no fuelling. After the installation it is as good as you using it for as long as it will last you. From research i had discovered that solar-inverter system is one of the cleanest sources of energy we have on earth.
Solar-Inverter Systems are always Silent
I have this neighbour which usually constitute nuisance in the neighbourhood with his generator before he eventually subscribed to our renewable energy system, it is very aggravating whenever he switches on the generation which causes noise pollution in the environment. That is he’s little way of notifying his neighbours that he is around. Generators are noisy when turned on and it can be very annoying especially when you have neighbour that has no regard for people. Solar-inverter on the other hand produces almost no noise.
Inverters are turn on automatically when Grid/Power is cut.
Ogad Technological Solutions are one of the top affordable solar-inverter systems in Nigeria and we have installed different type of inverter for different clients across the country. Inverter systems are designed in a way that it is meant to come up automatically when the grid/power went off. This is a prove of an uninterrupted power supply in which generator does not have such ability; you have to switch them on manually before your power/light can be restore.
From the above listed advantages of solar-inverter system to generator, you can agree with me that solar inverter is a must have every individual especially those who reside in Nigeria. Kindly contact us or whatsapp us for your affordable solar-inverter installation anywhere in Nigeria.
