Yes this back up power system can be used with a gas generator. This can be used with up to 8 batteries only. You would want to contact a local certified electrician for wiring options.

Reduce energy bill?

In the case of connecting a solar panel to this backup system, are appliances fed from the subpanel using power provided by the battery bank? That is to say, is a portion of my electric bill offset by the solar panel?

Staff Answer
This 3600 Watt Back Up Power System is designed to provide power when utility power goes down. The batteries can be charged from utility power, a generator, a wind turbine, or by solar panels. When the utility power goes out, this system will automatically switch to battery power until utility power is restored and stable. Then, it will switch back to normal operation. When in back up mod the appliances are running off battery power. This system is not designed as an energy saver.
