Enphase vs SolarEdge: which home solar inverter is best?
In a home solar installation, the inverter plays the critical role of turning the direct current from the solar panels into alternating current that the house can use. Broadly speaking, there are three types of inverter systems: microinverters, string inverters, and power optimizers. There are pros and cons to each of these, and situations where one type is more appropriate than another. While a quality solar installer will answer all of your questions about why they recommend a particular inverter, it’s always a good idea to have as much knowledge as possible so that you can ask intelligent questions.
