As the cost of solar panels continue to go down and efficiencies continue to rise, it is time to consider the efficiencies of other solar array components and how to achieve the greatest results possible.
Introducing the Enphase M250 Microinverter. Solar inverters convert direct current (DC) from the solar panel into alternating current (AC) for practical electrical use. The Enphase Microinverters attach directly to each solar panel allowing maximum efficiency by independent functioning and individual monitoring. These plug-and-play inverters permit solar panels on different roof slopes and placement in different directions. If shade covers a couple panels only those panels result in a reduction of energy production. The rest of the solar array continues to operate at maximum efficiency. The two videos included in this article better illustrate the advantage of using microinverters to optimize your electrical energy production. The following represents information directly from the Enphase website:
“The Enphase M250 Microinverter is optimized for high-power solar modules. Our 4th generation technology delivers reliable, high-performing systems at a great value. Plus, with Integrated Ground (IG), the M250 Microinverter does not require GEC, eliminating the cost and time associated with installing a copper grounding wire or WEEBs.”
