Green wire from inverter

I''ve wired the AC side of a 1200W inverter to an unused generator breaker on my AC panel. The panel has physical interlocks preventing the inverter from being paralleled with shore power so it is a good location. My question is what to do with the green saferty ground wire. If I wire it with the other safety grounds, will I be tying my DC and AC systems together when I'm on shore power and the inverter is not in service? The inverter has a case ground that is supposed to be tied to the DC ground bus.
