Nope.

The UPS' are the inverters.Not only that but they do AVR (automatic voltage regulation) and battery monitoring as well.

step 1 : set up whole house UPS.
step 2 : add a battery bank.
step 3 : solar panel and external charge controller.
step 4 : actually test a UPS in a 'continuous conversion' setup.This is a big maybe.

...but were on step 1 now , and it's a big one.

I've got pics but no way to host em....I'll get em up as soon as I can.
