Micro Inverters

DIY Solar Micro-inverters

Micro-inverters offer a cost-effective way to start producing solar power. These systems generally consist of a small grid tie inverter that connects directly to a single solar panel and produces AC power on it‘s output. The unit is intelligent enough to produce the power at the exact voltage and phase of your existing grid power. The end result is that your home consumes all the solar power your system can produce and only after this do you begin using your municipal supply.

You can begin with a single micro-inverter and panel combination and can add as many of these systems to your grid as you like and at any time. They are totally scalable, so you can start with a mere 500W worth of panels and over time build your system up to a significant 5kW system capable of running your entire household!
