Now’s not the time to put your feet up and get a little shut eye. If Homer Simpson’s troubled years at the helm of a power plant are any indication, plant managers who aren’t proactive experience significant trouble down the road. The hard work may be done and the system’s producing power, but solar systems are long-term investments that require consistent monitoring and maintenance.
Hot rods and solar – it’s all about more power. You’ll never hear complaints about having too much power, just ask Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor. Getting the most power out of a solar system has another thing in common with muscle cars: it’s all about what’s under the hood.
The Sunny Island’s Digital Input feature allows for seamless transition between grid and generator operation during grid failures. Follow along as the Solar Academy’s Mike Mahon demonstrates proper wiring and functionality of this key feature.

Module stringing and the question of how many and in which orientations, voltage windows and, lest we forget, available roof space, play pivotal roles in system design. To properly design a system, it’s imperative to know how stringing impacts the total power delivered to an inverter.
