Enphase is the industry’s leading microinverter manufacturer. Pioneers in the technology, they have created some of the most efficient and cost-effective microinverters in the world, dominating the market share globally.
We are proud to be the official “Enphase Preferred Installers” and highly recommend these products that are the most advanced inverter technology on the market.
What is a solar panel inverter?
While the solar panels get all the credit, it’s really the inverters that do the hard work.
They are the “brains” of the photovoltaic system, taking the raw, DC electricity that the solar panels create and converting it to safer, usable AC electricity.
Inverters play a crucial role in how the system performs, optimising the amount of power coming out of the system, and more importantly, the quality and safety of the electricity generated.
This is why choosing an inverter might be the most crucial decision you’ll make when it comes to your home solar system.
What’s the difference between a microinverter and a standard inverter?
A standard inverter (sometimes known as a string inverter) is one single inverter attached to your solar panels. Usually, 6-10 solar panels are wired together in a circuit and the standard inverter collects their electricity and changes it from DC to AC.
Microinverters are slightly different. Instead of having one big inverter at the end of a string of panels, each panel has one small microinverter attached to it.
This allows each solar panel to be monitored and optimised individually, generating more power overall. This type of microinverter set-up also means that if one solar panel fails, the others carry on as normal, an important advantage when it comes to multi-panel systems.
As pioneers of technology, Enphase is widely regarded as industry leaders.
Their systems offer the most advanced inverter technology on the market, resulting in higher production, greater reliability, and unmatched artificial intelligence.
Enphase microinverters undergo the most rigorous product testing of any manufacturer, a highly refined design and testing process which results in one of the most robust and trust-worthy inverters available.
Coming as part of every Enphase microinverter system is an incredible web application to help you track your energy production, monitor your system’s health, and share your data with family and friends.
With Enphase MyEnlighten you can check your system’s status at-a-glance without scrolling and still dive into the specific details of health and performance.
One tap takes you to energy production graphs and overviews of your energy consumption and storage with a simple, easy-to-use interface.
Bring your home solar system to the next level
Enphase microinverters have many advantages over traditional inverters.
Because they allow each solar panel to operate independently, the overall performance of the system isn’t negatively affected by one bad panel.
Shading, dust, and debris may decrease a single panel’s ability to produce electricity, but the other panels will continue to perform to the maximum ability.
This simple design is easy to install and manage, and can significantly boost your home electricity production.
