The inverter is the “brain” of a solar array. It not only converts the electricity from direct current (DC) from the solar panel to alternating current (AC), but records energy production, communicates with the internet, and optimizes energy harvesting. Since the inverter is such a critical component, careful selection is imperative to maximize energy harvesting, reliability, and longevity. We have many reasons for choosing a microinverter over a traditional string inverter, especially in the Utah solar energy market. Efficiency, shading, modular design, snow, safety and no single failure point are all benefits we will explore.
Solar power is now easier and more affordable than ever to install on your home or business. Here’s a quick overview of how solar works:
