Micro Inverters

The advent of the new generation micro inverter has opened an exciting era in small PV systems. It is now possible to install single panel grid-tie PV systems in apartments, condos, and small homes. For the cost of a little as a single PV panel (Nominally $500 for 200 watts) and a single micro inverter (Nominally $200), a PV system can be added to a home.

Micro inverters mounted on each PV panel provide solutions for sites with shading issues or complex roofs with arrays mounted in more than one orientation. For example, in difficult installations where a shadow passes across the array during the day, a string inverter reduces production from all panels on the string. Micro inverters minimize the impact of the shadow on power production by isolating…
