Solar requirements for 1.2kW Air-conditioner load

Hi, can i get a suggestion on the best kind and spec of inverter and batteries to carry a 1.5HP Air-conditioner load.

Hi if you do a simple conversion in google (1.5HP = 1.2kW). To generate 1.2kW under variable weather conditions I would recommend at 3-4kW of solar panels as I’m sure your home will also have other appliances, lights, fridges etc also running. A 3kW inverter would be suitable but depending on your location it might be worth going bigger if you can afford it. Oversizing solar is a common practice due to the low cost of solar panels in Australia and additional subsidies.

Thanks. That was helpful.
