    Is it possable to hook up two inverters, each 120 volts into my
    household system to get 240 volts? I am running a lister 3 cyl 15kw
    generator during the day and a 1500 watt inverter at night running off
    batteries charged by the generator. I have most of the house hooked up
    to one side of my breaker panel, and just the 220 hooked up to both
    sides, when I switch over to inverter, I shut off the 220 breakers to
    make sure I don't overload the inverter, tho I don't think having one
    leg dead on the 220 would allow current to flow. don't know.. So, Can
    I hook up one inverter to each side of my breaker box and use 220 to
    run my well pump? If so, I can get some higher power inverters to do
    that. I don't have the funds to get a pure sine wave 220 volt
    inverter, so am stuck with the cheap 200.00 ones from coleman.
    I thought about trying it, but don't want to fry the inverters and
    than have to buy new ones.
    Thanks for any info

    Not possible unless they can be phase syncronized.

    Why don't you simply pay your electric bill. :)

    27,000.00 to get electricity to my house. Would you give me a loan for
    that? If you would, I will GLADLY pay my electric bill!!

    Your problem is better presented on Try it.

    Most 220v motors are also 50Hz
