Upgrade your solar panel system with a Solar Micro Inverter!

 

What’s the difference between a Solar Micro Inverter and an AC Conventional Inverter?

 

While both these systems work well to generate solar electricity for your home, a solar micro inverter is a miniaturised version of a conventional inverter which allows for more flexibility within your home solar system. Micro inverter solar systems are also newer and use more advanced technology.

What’s the main benefit of a Solar Micro Inverter?

 

Apart from its minimalist aesthetics, the key benefit of using a solar micro inverter vs a traditional solar inverter means that the output of each solar panel works independently, whereas with a conventional inverter if one panel is affected in some way, the output of every panel will be reduced.

 

What’s the cost difference?

 

While a micro inverter solar system has a slightly higher initial outlay, it is argued that you will getter a better return on your electricity generation due to each micro inverter being installed on each solar panel individually, therefore, maximising the output of each panel.

Are solar micro inverters worth the extra money?

Micro Inverters are used for overcoming very specific challenges and deliver value for money when used for these challenges. Contact us to discuss whether a solar micro inverter system is right for you.

How much does a solar micro inverter cost?

Micro inverter systems are generally 20-30% more expensive than a standard solar system

Are solar micro inverters better than standard solar panel inverters?

Micro inverters are better when you have extensive shading or a multi-faceted roof. For other situations, a standard solar system may be better suited.

Are solar inverters covered by insurance?

Solar inverters are covered under the homeowner’s building insurance policy.

Which type of inverter is best for solar panels?

Fronius and SMA inverters are considered the best available, although most reputable solar inverters carry similar warranties these days. Just be careful of the cheap solar systems with their cheap inverters which do not last.

What is the difference between a string inverter and a micro inverter?

Micro inverters operate so that each solar panel has its own single inverter which converts DC to AC power while string inverters generate power from the panels that are all connected together in a “string”.

How long do solar inverters last?

Most solar inverters have 10-year warranties and are expected to last 20 years.
