Why use one micro-inverter per solar panel?
The Enphase Micro-Inverter system is the world’s most technologically advanced inverter system
for use with grid-tie, or utility-connected, solar electric systems.
Introduction to Enphase Energy Micro-Inverters... NOW EVEN LOWER PRICES!!
Shading on one panel won't affect the output of any other panels, allowing you to get the most power from your system and the most bang for your buck.
Expand your system easier and cheaper by simply adding another panel and another Enphase micro-inverter to the array!
Enphase Micro-Inverters save you time and materials.
One of biggest advantages to using micro-inverters is that instead of sizing (and therefore limiting) your inverter to a specific number and overall wattage of solar panels, with Enphase, you use one micro-inverter per panel. To increase the size of your solar electric system, you can simply add single (or any number of) panels of different wattages and even different manufacturers. You simply add one micro-inverter per panel.
With the Enphase Micro-Inverter system, you do not have to invest in another larger inverter when you are ready to expand; just add one micro-inverter per panel.
Ease of Design and Installation
Solar electric systems using Enphase Micro-Inverters are simple to design and simple to install:
Enphase Supports a Great Online Monitoring System called Enphase Enlighten.
- There are no string calculations necessary.
- Individual solar panels may be installed in any combination of module quantity, type, orientation and age.
- Each micro-inverter quickly mounts on the solar panel racking, directly beneath each panel.
- Low voltage DC wires connect from the solar panel directly to the co-located micro-inverter, eliminating the risk of the installer’s exposure to lethal 600VDC power.
- Watch a training video here. See Installation pictures.
By registering for Enphase Enlighten, a web-based monitoring and analytics system, you can monitor each solar panel in your array from anywhere you have internet access.
The Enlighten website provides a wide range of information on your system and the individual solar panels. A graph of the solar array provides info on each module, including current and lifetime performance.

Enphase Micro-Inverters Maximize Power Output.
With the Enphase Micro-Inverter System, if one of your solar panels is shaded, or damaged, you do not affect the output of the rest of your solar array. All panels perform to their greatest capacity.
Each Solar Module has its own Enphase Inverter.
An individual Maximum Peak Power Point Tracking Controller (MPPT) controls the output of each solar panel. This insures that the most available power from each panel flows into your system, regardless of the performance of the rest of the panels in the array.
The Micro-Inverter concept insures that there is no single point of failure in your solar electric system. Enphase Micro-Inverters are designed to operate at full power at temperatures as high as 65 degrees C (150 degrees F).
