This inverter generator was already selling at $3900 with free delivery and lift gate before Honda Holiday sales kicked in. I just ordered the generator for $3799 free delivery and lift gate.

There is an option to pay by check with will save you another 2% off the cost but I did not take that option since it extends the time before the generator ships.

Hey, I need some info on setting up a grid tie solar system. I got 2 acres of land and want to get something that is expandable. Maybe start with 4-6 panels and build out. Any tips on what to look for?

I'd also like a generac 16kw generator. They seem to have the best prices when zoro tools has a 30% off coupon. Have you found any better deals?

Whats with this generator? Why wouldn't I just put 3 or four smaller ones in parallel?

How are you going to sync them? If you try to parallel AC and they are out of phase you're looking at a pretty good arc and likely to blow one or both up.

I'm no expert on this topic. I had solar panels since 2011 and micro inverter panels cost a lot more back then. I think most people are purchasing solar panels with micro inverters built on the panels to avoid getting limited by solar tie-in inverter, which is what I have. best I can achieve is 5K watts output with that inverter.

Why this generator: uses an inverter, fuel injector (not carburetor), surge output is 29.1Amps on a 240/30amp circuit, only have to deal with one unit. I found only parallel units that had a 120/30amp circuit, no FI equip, could only handle a max of 4000watts, and you could only attach two units. Granted, I did not spend much time searching for this type of solution.
you might want to look at Telsa's powerwall 2 instead of getting a 16KW unit.

It's inverter, and it has 240V output. Very rare combo. 3 or 4 smaller inverter gens in parallel might get you the wattage, but it wouldn't be 240V so you couldn't just plug it into a generator inlet and run your house ... with this you can. If you want a large 240V inverter generator, this and the Yamaha EF6300iSDE are basically your only two options, and they both cost a mint. Having said that, this isn't a bad price for this generator, but it's only like $200 off, so it's not super-slick either.

Personally I'd go with a low THD traditional generator, unless you have a pressing need for something that's quieter than that. Costco sell a very nice 7000 running / 9000 peak watt dual-fuel low THD generator for $800 normally and ~$600 when on coupon sale that I wholeheartedly recommend for limited home backup use if noise isn't an issue.
