 +> Inverter chargers generally prefer conventional generator and not inverter generators. This is because they control the amount of power they pull from the generator just adjusting your island frequency. Inverter generators do not handle an external actor trying to adjust the frequency and will rigidly keep 50 or 60Hz until they trip. -- therealrimwarren((https://www.reddit.com/r/SolarDIY/comments/tv41bj/options_for_generator_on_an_off_grid_system/i381dv2/))
