Power inverters convert DC voltage from a battery to AC voltage used by appliances in our homes and offices. Power inverters are alternatives to a power generator when it comes to supplying backup or standby power during power failure. Standby power is now critical in Nigeria because of epileptic power supply in the country. Find power inverter prices, dealers and some reason why power inverters may be preferred over petrol-driven electric generators for backup power supply.


Power Inverters are not as popular as electric generators in backup power applications. This is largely due to higher costs. In fact, a power inverter is a more expensive alternative to a power generator

Power inverter prices may be high, but it has some benefits that can make it worth every kobo you spend on it.

It is also important to note that power inverter prices is now getting lower in Nigeria (compared to years back), though prices of inverter battery is still an issue. Checkout Power Inverter Prices in the next section

Inverter Installation Cost

Installation cost will vary depending on the level of work required. If you just want the inverter to operate in parallel to your mains supply more like a UPS or AVR, this will cost 10,000 Naira or below.

This is usually the best way to connect inverters of 1KVA and below. However, if you want the inverter to share mains cabling via switchover, more like power generators the cost will be higher.

The switchover method is recommended for inverters of 1.5KVA and above. Installing a power inverter costs from 15,000 to over 30,000 Naira depending on the level of work.

Wall mounted inverter installation costs more with price starting at 15,000 Naira.

Benefits of a Power Inverter

Here are a few benefits of power inverters:

Inverters offer noise free operations

Power Inverters have silent operations. Unlike generators that make a lot of noise disturbing you and your neighbours, Power Inverters make very little noise that you can barely hear any sound.

All you hear from is the fan and the clicking of relays. Therefore, if you want silent operation in your home or business you should consider a power inverter.

No need for petrol or diesel

One great benefit of a power inverter is that it does not require petrol or diesel. This singular capability comes with many benefits.

First, it eliminates the risks associated with refueling generators or improper storage of fuel.

Many homes, businesses, and markets in Nigeria have been razed by fire from improper storage of fuels.

Another benefit of the fuel-free operations of power inverters is convenience, no need to visit filling stations everyday in search of petrol.

Power inverters receive power from batteries. All you need to do is to charge your inverter battery.

Therefore, if you want convenient and reduced risk operations buy a power inverter for your standby power.

Power Inverters offer Zero emissions

Because power inverters do not need petrol and do not have an internal combustion engine, they do not emit dangerous gases during operations.

This means that you can keep a power inverter inside a room within the building just like your UPS, without any risk of suffocation.

Deaths from generator operation are now a common occurrence in Nigeria. Improper mounting of generators usually causes these deaths.

If you live in an area, where it is inconvenient to properly mount a power generator, then you should consider a power inverter.

If paying a bit more for a power inverter can reduce the risk of suffocation from dangerous gases then they are worth the extra cost.

Zero emission may also appeal to you if you are concerned about global warming, and you need to be. Power Inverters are greener than generators. Therefore, if you prefer a greener world then you will prefer a power inverter.

Inverters offer Lower running cost

Because power inverters do not require fuel, they run with almost no input aside from charging your inverter batteries.

Although, power inverters have huge purchase/capital cost (yes inverter prices may be considered high), the recurrent cost is low.

In fact, in the long term an inverter may be cheaper than a generator, especially in countries like Nigeria where people rely on generators to supply most of their power.

Imagine spending 2000 NGN every week for 3 years. That adds up to 312,000 Naira in three years. Add maintenance cost and total cost could be hitting 400,000 Naira or more.

So, though Inverter prices are high they involve very little running cost, especially if you buy a good one.

For example, I imagine I save over 100,000 Naira per year in fuel costs since I bought my Power Inverter about more than three years ago.

Un-interruptible supply

Power Inverters can be connected in such a way that once a power failure occurs, the system switches automatically to battery mode.

This provides convenience. No need to do anything, power inverters will switch from battery mode to mains mode as the need arises. UPS are also built-into some power inverters to provide faster response time.

With such inverters, you can connect sensitive devices like computers directly to your wall sockets. No need for a separate UPS for your computer if you are using a power inverter with built-in UPS.

More about Power inverters

Power Inverters convert energy stored in batteries to AC electricity used by most appliances. Pure sine wave power inverters are very popular and recommended but are more expensive.

A square wave power inverter generates square waves, which can cause problems when running some devices like TV and radio.

Square wave inverters creates frequency harmonics which can result in humming sound from your radio and TV and colour clarity problems on your TV.

Have you ever attended a seminar to learn how to build power inverters? That inverter is likely to be a square power inverter.

Square wave inverters are cheaper and easier to build than pure sine wave inverters and may be used in some applications to save cost. However, pure sine wave power inverters are preferred for the home electronics.

Pure sine wave inverters use filters to filter out all harmonics leaving only pure 50Hz sine wave. This filtering adds to the cost of pure sine wave inverters.

Therefore, when buying a power inverter make sure you choose the right type. Square wave inverters are okay for charging batteries.

Power inverters offer fluctuation and noise free operations. Inverters also offer automatic switchover to battery mode during power failure. Power inverters will automatically switch back when public power returns.

It is recommended you choose a sealed inverter battery, which require no maintenance except for dusting it, occasionally. Sealed maintenance free batteries are more expensive but are safer and easier to use.

Inverter batteries can be charged with your public power or with electric generators in places with inadequate public power supplies.

Solar panels can also be used to charge inverter batteries via solar charge controllers. Note that there are power inverters specifically built for solar operations. Therefore, if you want to build a solar energy system, buy solar compatible power inverters.

Good power inverters come with overload and short circuit protection, protecting your appliances and inverter from damage.

Power Inverters are available in single phase and 3-phase models. There are also single phase to 3-phase power inverters.

Applications for Power Inverters

A Power inverter can be used in industrial, office, and home applications. Here are some applications where power inverters can be used:

  • Medical equipment in hospitals & clinics
  • Telecommunications equipment
  • IT
  • Broadcast
  • Hotels
  • Home use
  • ATMs
  • Industrial

Power inverters are available that can provide power ranging from 800VA to up to 1000 KVA.
