There are a variety of Inverter manufacturers on the markets. The top two we install regularly are SMA and SolarEdge. Both are fantastic products with great warranties. Depending on the situation, we may recommend one over the other.
*All information is taken directly from the manufacturer's websites.
The SolarEdge DC-AC PV inverter is specifically designed to work with the SolarEdge power optimizers. Because MPPT and voltage management are handled separately for each module by the power optimizer, the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Consequently, it is a less complicated, more cost effective, more reliable solar inverter with a standard 12 year warranty, extendable to 20 or 25 years. The fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (>97% weighted efficiency) independent of string length and temperature.
Secure Power Supply (SPS)
The inverter is equipped with a secure power supply by means of which an external socket-outlet can be connected to the inverter. The socket-outlet provides current from the PV plant on demand in the event of a grid failure.
Easy to Read Display
The display shows the current operating data of the inverter (e.g., current power, daily energy, total energy) as well as events or error messages. The power and energy are displayed as bars in the diagram. Tap on the screen to light up the display.
The inverter is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Setting new heights in residential inverter performance. Its transformerless design means high efficiency and reduced weight. Maximum power production is derived from wide input voltage and operating temperature ranges. Multiple MPP trackers and OptiTrac™ Global Peak mitigate the effect of shade and allow for installation at challenging sites.
