Inverters

Solar panels may be on top, but it’s the inverter that does all the real work. The solar panels on your roof absorb sunshine in the form of direct current (DC) power. The inverter converts that DC power to alternating current (AC), the form of electricity your home can use. The two types of inverters we commonly use are micro inverters and string inverters. The efficiency of your inverter is much more important then the efficiency of your solar panels. For this reason, we have partnered with some of the world’s leading advanced technology providers.
