Not only does this improve system performance through precise maximum power point tracking, but it also eliminates any single point of system failure, resulting in significantly higher energy harvest over the system’s lifetime and increased return on investment.
In addition, Enphase Microinverters enhance the safety of the solar array by eliminating high voltage DC wiring from the rooftop.
Superior Performance, Superior ROI
In a central inverter-based solar system, any underperforming module can bottleneck the performance of hundreds of its neighbors, harming performance.
Microinverters eliminate the possibility of bottlenecked performance. Each solar module operates independently, maximizing the performance of the system and increasing the system’s lifetime energy production by 5-25%.
Greater Reliability, Greater Uptime
A typical central inverter unit processes the power of hundreds, or even thousands, of solar modules at once. Though this seems like a convenient way to operate a large solar system, it puts high levels of stress on the components in the inverter, resulting in frequent breakdowns. And, because central inverters process all the power for the array, any problem results in a complete system outage.
With microinverters, power processing is distributed across the solar array, eliminating any single point of system failure. As a result, systems installed with Enphase Microinverters are able to outperform central inverter-based systems and achieve an unparalleled system uptime of 99.8%.
In addition, Enphase Enlighten automatically diagnoses and alerts system owners and managers to potential problems in the array. This ensures maximum performance and allows problems to be easily addressed during routine maintenance (like module cleaning) or at the installer’s convenience.
Faster Installs at Lower Cost
In addition to simplifying the system design process, the Enphase Microinverter Systems lowers physical plant costs compared to a central inverter-based solar system.
With no large central inverter device to install, there’s no need for concrete pads, air conditioned huts or chain link fences. In addition, all wiring is standard AC, eliminating significant balance-of-system cost for expensive DC electrical components and large gauge wires.
Safer & Easier Management
Enphase Enlighten automatically diagnoses a problem with an inverter or a module and notifies you.
Not only does this protect against prolonged downtime, but it also reduces on-site diagnostics and troubleshooting. You’ll know exactly what needs to be fixed, and what equipment is needed to do so.
This ensures maximum performance and allows problems to be easily addressed during routine maintenance (like module cleaning) or at the owner’s convenience.
