What I was trying to say is that I don't understand how you get power from an inverter to power household wire. The main feed that would usually go back to a panel in a house would obviously have to go back to the inverter instead but I don't understand how a 14/2 wire or 12/2 depending where your at, hooks up to an inverter? is their usually a spot for it? or would you chop one end off an extension cord plug it into the inverter and just wire the chopped end into an electrical box with your switch?(this would be taking the power from the inverter and feeding your light circuit) This question has to do completely with off grid wiring as there is no panel or anything.

Side note: I do plan on using DC, This AC thing is just something I wanted to figure out. I found some really good articles on That really helped me understand the low voltage dc lighting options.
