I call those "modified square wave" inverters - hi! Mine is a 3 kW sine
wave inverter. I haven't come across any RFI from it. I don't have PV
panels but may add them in the future. I need to replace the battery for
the inverter before winter. For lengthy outages, my generator is an
"inverter" type that also outputs a sine wave. While I wouldn't think of
having a non-sine wave inverter, I should mention that all my UPSs are
not sine wave! Hopefully they never have to operate for more than a
fraction of a second.
