Cutting Edge Power’s Flagship Rebel Solar Generator is the only full-featured 120/240 Volt Solar Generator whole-home solar generator on the market due to its rugged 240V split phase inverter!

The Rebel is a 120V/240V pure sine solar generator specifically designed to replace a gas generator, and has the following advantages over gas generators:

  • More Reliable: Fully automated: No start-ups, No fill-ups
  • Zero routine maintenance: No oil changes, no filter changes, and no fuel additives.
  • Energy Independence: Solar power isn’t related to the economy like gasoline is. A solar generator system will be resilient through hard times of natural disaster recovery and uncertain times.
  • Safe to use indoors and extremely quiet (some lead acid batteries may require ventilation). 
  • Easily connects to your home's breaker box via transfer switch (optional). 


The Rebel is outdoor rated and weatherproof.  The pure sine low frequency inverter is at the heart of its extreme rugged reliability.  And it can plug directly into your home’s main circuit panel via our generator transfer switch.  It's perfect for homes, RV's, cabins, well pumps and any other 240V or 120V applications.

Why does it have a low frequency inverter?

  • Weighing about 3 times more than a high frequency inverter, it’s definitely not to save on shipping costs!   (Our 6,000W inverter weighs 85 lbs)

Low frequency inverters are extra heavy duty.  They use powerful transformers (lots of copper!) which makes them more reliable and sturdier than the cheap high frequency inverter’s MOSFETs, which use electronic switching and are more prone to damage, particularly at high power levels.

  • Low frequency inverters have a much higher tolerance for harsh and humid environments, making our solar generators ideal for use in emergency situations.  Plus, our Rebel's inverter has conformal coating on the PCB, further reducing the potential water/moisture damage to the electronics.
  • Low frequency inverters have a higher surge output than high frequency inverters. (300% surge versus typical 200%)
  • The surge rating of 300% is for a full 20 seconds! Most inverters have a surge rating of about 10 milliseconds to 2 seconds.

All electronics are mounted inside which means there’s no exposed wiring and the sensitive components are protected from the elements.  Exterior connections are waterproof and designed for outdoor use.

We went sensor crazy and each Rebel includes a minimum of (4) temperature sensors to maximize the lifespan of the inverter, charge controller and batteries (if equipped).

Being able to supply your own battery, or use our battery makes this solar generator one of the best and least expensive options on the market.  Cutting Edge Power solar generators are completely modular with connections to add more batteries in the future.  


Rebel Hardware Features:

  • Industrial temperature controls on each MPPT charge controller(s) and inverter(s) keep critical components cool even in the summer heat by using smart fans to cycle air.  The fans turn off to save power when they aren't needed.
  • Pre-wired and ready to go: The same familiar connections as a typical gas generator.
  • Pre-wired and ready to go: Plug your solar panels directly into the pre-wired solar panel connectors.  No crimping, splicing, or extra wiring needed.
  • Totally modular:
    • Exterior 3/8” post terminals for connecting as many additional batteries as you need.
    • Easily add multiple solar panels to speed up charging.
    • Car charger and faster wall chargers available for purchase.  Integrated 240V AC charger included as standard on the Rebel.
  • Critical connections made with the best marine grade 200°C rated silicone insulated wire we can find, and always crimped or soldered in Houston, TX.
  • Locking mechanism allows padlock to prevent theft / vandalism.
  • Large, sturdy wheels for use on smooth surfaces or off-road.  Extendable metal handle for ease when rolling.


Rebel Software features:

  • Modern and Efficient MPPT charging. 
  • Continuous monitoring via Bluetooth app.  
  • Automatic battery recognition for 12/24V Flooded, AGM and GEL batteries.  Lithium batteries are manually set up at the Cutting Edge Power factory.
  • Simple menus with a Large Back-lit LCD display. The display shows system status, solar input current, solar input voltage, battery voltage, and battery state of charge (%).  The menu rotates through these parameters automatically, so a wireless camera can be used to remotely monitor them.
  • Temperature compensation for better battery charging in cold or hot ambient temperatures.  A minimum of 4 quiet and high-speed cooling fans are independently controlled by their own temperature sensor to maximize the lifespan of your Rebel's inverter, charge controller and batteries (if equipped).
  • Battery temperature sensors on each inverter(s) and charge controller(s) to maximize battery lifespan by adjusting charge and discharge rates.
  • Built-in 240V battery charger to charge via L14-30 input at 240VAC to DC batteries at up to 1,440W (Requires 240V split phase AC input only, not 120V.  For 120V chargers, search for "Wall Charger" or "WC".  Depends on battery chemistry.)
  • All of the industry standard protections like reverse solar polarity protection, reverse battery polarity protection, battery over-discharge, battery over-voltage, and a 30A circuit breaker on the 12V sockets.
  • Supported by Cutting Edge Power, headquartered in the USA, with experienced technical support and a large array of accessories on our website.
  • Programming and setting adjustment can be made via Bluetooth:

Rebel Optional Features (Wind & Solar version):

  • Basic wind controls: Easy wind turbine connection with 3 phase AC wind turbine input via quick reusable connectors.
  • 400W and larger options: Basic wind controls plus built-in wind turbine brake to stop/slow the blades when raising or lowering your turbine.
  • 400W and larger options3 phase AC to DC rectifier pre-wired for charging your battery with a 3 phase wild AC wind turbine.
  • Temperature controlled high-flow fans for autonomous operation.

Rebel Advanced Features:

The Rebel Advanced Features are not intended for beginners or novice users.  However, all it takes is a little bit of reading and some patience to become an advanced user.  The following features can be accessed on all Rebel Solar Generators.  They are described in detail in the Rebel Inverter Manual, but feel free to ask us if you have any questions.

  • Automatic transfer switch operation: This is similar to a conventional UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) used with computers and electronics.  This requires the Rebel's 240VAC input AND 240VAC output to be continuously connected to your home or building.  Note: The Rebel's "Input" is sometimes referred to as "Shore power" or "shore connection".  With this feature enabled, your home or building will continuously run on power from the grid until the grid goes down.  Within 8 milliseconds of the grid going down, power will be transferred to the Rebel's inverter/battery off-grid system only.  Visit Rebel Inverter Manual section 2.5.5 for more details.
  • Gas Generator Auto-start for backup charging: (Only works with gas generators that have auto-start function).  When the Rebel's battery voltage drops to 10.0V DC (21.0V DC on 24V models), the Rebel will send a signal to start your gas generator.  The gas generator will remain on until the batteries are fully charged.  This allows you to maximize your free solar/wind power, but still have the reliability and dependability of a gas generator.  The auto-start feature is completely automatic, so no more waking up in the middle of the night to start up the generator!  Visit Rebel Inverter Manual section 2.5.13 for more details.

Combining these two features equips your home or business with the most cutting-edge backup power system available on the market.  The system takes advantage of the best of both worlds; free and reliable solar power as primary, but still the option of falling back on traditional gas generator power.  These two advanced features (along with Rebel's other features) will provide a fully automatic backup system that you will never have to think about!

This generator is a beast!

I purchased this generator to run my 230v well pump that draws water out of the ground. I connected my water system to it and it ran the system easily! I’m very happy with my purchase and with the amazing customer service I have received in helping me get things set up.

A Great Company

The product runs as it should. Well put together, high quality wiring and other materials. I believe that they need to develop a better system of instructions and troubleshooting, but their customer service representatives have been quick to answer emails and do their best to troubleshoot the few issues I ran into. I would recommend this product!
