There are two common types of solar inverters sold in the Australian market.
Microinverters are great if a panel is shaded or obstructed as the other panels still deliver maximum output. They are perfectly sized for every roof and can adapt to complex roof layouts.
String inverters are limited by the lowest producing panel.
Enphase (micro inverter)
The best solution if your roof has shade issues or obstructions!
This modular microinverter design means you can easily expand a system as it needs to grow.
IQ Microinverters are inherently safer because they operate at the same low-voltage AC power as your home.
Enphase systems never contain high-voltage DC power.
