It is an efficient and cost friendly device that uses PV rays to change direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). Unlike string inverters, there is no use for separate central inverters. Each individual panel will have a microinverter installed on to maximize energy conversion. In addition, they also lesson the severity of the negative impacts on partial or complete shading.
  • Why Microinverter is better?
    More safe; More productive; More reliable; Smarter; Easier to maintain.
  • What happens if the house is sold?
