What is Multimode inverter?

Also referred to as a hybrid inverter. A type of inverter capable of operating as either off-the-grid or grid-tied inverter. Batteries compatible with multimode inverters can be added to rooftop PV installations. Such inverters are more expensive compared to single-mode inverters. Another drawback is that hybrid inverters are compatible with a limited range of battery types.
