You have decided to go solar. Great! Now you might be asking yourself; what are the components of a solar system? What does an inverter do? Why is it important? Which one is right for me? These are common questions and at SMA, we have the answers.
As explained in this brochure, a solar panel collects photons emitted by sunlight. Solar panels collect those photons and generate energy from the sun. They send it to the inverter, which is the component that changes the electricity created by the solar panels from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC so the energy is usable in your home.
However, not all inverters are the same. Choosing the right one for your home system is extremely important.
Maximized inverter performance leads to more energy production and yields better returns for your solar project. In other words, the right inverter will generate greater lifetime savings on your utility bills.
