Sol-ark 12k Solar Inverter
The Sol-Ark 12k inverter has an entirely new range of use than its sister Sol-Ark 8k inverter. This all-in-one pre-wired inverter system features new capabilities such as systems gains and true three phase. It is the most efficient and cost-effective inverter in its class by a long stretch, just see the inverter comparison chart below.

Sol-ark 12k Overview
This solar inverter can be used off-grid or on grid and is expandable up to 72 kW! With 20kW peak power, it is truly limitless. Applications include parallel stacking (see video below), grid sell, meter zero, time of use, smart load, AC coupling, & peak shaving.
The Sol-Ark 12k is a pre-wired system that contains the inverter, charge controller, and more, all in one package; no fuses, breakers, or combiner boxes necessary! With minimal additional hardware required, your install stays simple and low-cost.
Sol-Ark inverters also do not have expensive battery restrictions like other solar inverters do, and can be used with a wide variety of 48V battery chemistries, from lead to lithium.
Highly Accelerated Life Testing
Proven to last well beyond the standard 10 year warranty
Engineered, Serviced, and Tested in the USA
Talk to a US Based Engineer 7 days a week
No Glitch Switch (4ms)
Fastest transfer time in the industry.
The best applications for the Sol-Ark 12k are off-grid, big gains, and time of use. For smaller scale systems, we highly recommend the Sol-ark 8k. Contact us for help figuring out which inverter is right for you!
- Grid-Tied Mode – Sell power back to the Utility to reduce your electric bill
- Meter Zero Mode – Zero your electric bill without adding an additional smart meter
- Time-Of-Use Mode – Use solar and batteries to minimize grid power usage when it’s most expensive
- Smart Load Mode – Use a programmable output for high-power off grid loads or grid
- Time-of-use loads – to run only when there is optimum solar – use excess PV power when batteries are full
- Off Grid applications – battery agnostic
- AC Coupling – retrofits to existing grid tie systems
- Battery backup
