No solar energy system is complete without a solar inverter. Though their function as a DC to AC power inverter may seem simple, they are far more than that. As well as being the heart, solar inverters are also the brain of your solar power system. They will often include a variety of safety and control mechanisms.
These work to ensure that your solar power system is not only working at the highest levels of efficiency possible but also that it will stay at those levels for a long time to come, and that if issues do occur, they do not spread and harm other parts of the system or home.
What inverter you choose will heavily depend on what it is a homeowner is seeking to achieve with their solar energy system, and the size that they want from it, such as choosing a hybrid inverter to use with a battery, or microinverters to make the most of little roof space, or space prone to shading.
