Enphase Micro Inverters are the new technology in solar and the way of the future! It’s no surprise they are one of the most popular products with our customer. With an individual inverter for each panel a modular system that is less likely to break down and is easier to expand later is achieved. They come at a slight premium but the advantages far exceed the price difference.
Advantages of the AC Enphase Micro Inverter System –
No single point of failure, Each module works independently.
No high voltage DC is safer, generates less heat and reduces risk of product failure.
Longer manufacturer Warranty period.
Higher output efficiency.
Better performance on cloudy days, winter or where affected by shade.
System produces more power in low light levels starting earlier and shutting down later in the day.
No panel output mismatch due to panel degradation with age.
Design flexibility. Panels can face more directions and in smaller numbers.
Easier to expand later. Extend without duplicating a second system.
Neater Installation without the large inverter on the side of the house.
Consumption Monitoring allows you to see your usage as well as production on any smart device from anywhere.
Truly Battery ready, no more to pay, not just battery compatible.
System Integration. Connect your old system to the new one and store power into batteries from both.
Starting from the humble Solax Boost Range of single phase inverters from 2kW to 5kW which provide premium quality at an affordable price without the fancy software (which can be added for a small fee) these are a popular choice for affordability and smaller installs.
The single phase Solax Hybrid Inverter is battery ready and offers a future proof solar solution ready for major brands of batteries like LG Chem and Tesla Power Wall.
Offering the highest level of reliability, it doesn’t have the history of high fault rates, failure or product recalls that other brands around this price point which often are not truly battery ready anyway. It does have all the technology you are looking for in a hybrid inverter for the same price which makes it excellent value when comparing products.
SolaX X-Hybrid Three Phase battery storage inverter has the ability to install multiple inverters in parallel, scalable battery storage for large residential and commercial applications.The inverter is equipped with a built-in EPS (Emergency Power Supply), has multiple communication options and can be controlled remotely.
The SMA brand is probably the most well known in the solar industry and has a great track record for it’s quality and reliability. It still remains one of the most popular choices for industrial and rural applications, particularly where there
may be communication problems with some of the newer technology, the system size is large or there are site limitations.
Traditionally A German product, the red single phase units up to 5kW are now made in China with App based monitoring while the blue three phase range from 6kW up are still made in Germany
They are not Hybrid inverters and therefore are not compatible with most battery products without retro fitting a SMA Storage Inverter later.
While you can add a battery it’s not what you would call plug and play and will incur some additional costs.
The Redback Smart Hybrid Inverter consists of a 5kW inverter and battery enclosure which integrates with up to 13.2kWh’s of energy storage.
The System offers hybrid capability, offering an uninterrupted power supply and backup power all in one.
The System’s advanced software allows you to store, monitor and manage your home’s solar energy, maximising your self-consumption and providing market leading return on investment.
The compact, elegantly designed and robust unit can be mounted either inside or outside your home.
