Benefits of Micro Inverters
Micro Inverters offer many benefits over traditional string inverters.
AC Current from the Panels means Higher Efficiency!
Alternating current (AC) power is safer and more efficient than direct current (DC) power, which is why this is the type of power that your local utility supplies. Converting the DC power generated by your array at each individual panel instead of bringing it to a central inverter first means there is less wasted energy.
Mix and Match!
Grow your system over time with micro inverters! Add additional panel and inverter combos at your convenience without worrying about using mismatched panels. Unlike central inverters, micro inverters don't require you to use the same panels for your entire system, so you can focus on adding panels that fit your space and budget requirements.
Central inverters are bulky and heavy. A microinverter mounts to the back of the individual solar panels, making it easier to handle. Generating grid-compatible AC current at each panel also means that thinner wires can be used in your system.
One Inverter per Panel means each panel performs to its maximum!
Micro inverters provide MPPT technology at each individual solar panel making the entire system more efficient. If one of your solar panels loses production due to shading, debris or a defect, your entire system is not affected.
