The inverter is the “brain” of a solar array. It not only converts the electricity from direct current (DC) from the solar panel to alternating current (AC), but records energy production, communicates with the internet, and optimizes energy harvesting. Since the inverter is such a critical component, careful selection is imperative to maximize energy harvesting, reliability, and longevity. We have many reasons for choosing a microinverter over a traditional string inverter, especially in the Utah solar energy market. Efficiency, shading, modular design, snow, safety and no single failure point are all benefits we will explore.
One of the most frequent questions we are asked is what brand of solar panels we prefer to use. This is somewhat of a loaded question, as there are many different applications for solar panels, but below is some of our thoughts on choosing the best solar panel for your Utah solar home.
Often times when speaking with a homeowner or business owner we bring up what kind of return on investment they can expect from their Utah solar power system. It is amazing that many people don’t consider this when making the decision whether or not to install solar energy on their home or business.
Solar prices have fallen significantly over the past few years. That combined with the State and Government tax incentives have made Utah solar power a great investment opportunity.
