Maximising Solar Energy Output: Factors to Consider When Selecting a Solar Inverter for your Australian System

When selecting a solar inverter for a solar energy system, there are several key factors to consider:

  • Efficiency: The efficiency of an inverter refers to the amount of energy that it can convert from DC to AC. Higher-efficiency solar            inverters will waste less energy and produce more usable power. 
  • Power Rating: The power rating of an inverter refers to the maximum amount of power that it can handle. It is important to                  choose a solar inverter that can handle the maximum output of your solar array. We recommend you consult a solar expert to              determine what solar capacity your home or business requires to help determine what inverter power rating you need. 
  • Type of Inverter: There are different types of inverters available, such as string inverters, microinverters, and central inverters.            Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages and the one you choose will depend on the specifics of your solar panel                array and your energy needs.

  • Number of Phases: It is important to ensure that the inverter you choose is compatible with the number of phases in your                    electrical service. Single-phase inverters are suitable for residential use, while three-phase inverters are typically used for large              residential, commercial or industrial applications.
  • Monitoring and Control: Some inverters come with advanced monitoring and control features, such as remote access and                    real-time monitoring. These features can be useful for monitoring the performance of your solar energy system and making                  any necessary adjustments.
  • Durability and Reliability: Inverters are an important part of your solar energy system and need to be reliable and durable.                Look for inverters that have been tested and certified to withstand the environmental conditions of your location and have a                good warranty and after-sales service. 
  • Compatibility: It is important to ensure that the inverter you choose is compatible with your solar panels and that it meets any            local building codes or regulations.
  • Price and ROI: The cost of the inverter is also an important consideration. You need to make sure that the inverter you choose            will provide a good return on investment over time. Read more: Solar Bill Savings - How Much Will You Save on Your Power                     Bill With Solar?
  • Battery Compatibility: More homeowners are choosing to future-proof their home by installing solar batteries. If you believe              batteries might be an option for you either now or in the future, you need to consider a solar inverter with battery                                    compatibility. This prevents you from having to upgrade components down the line, saving you both time and money.
  • Site Considerations: Consider your site's specific features to help determine which solar inverter would be best for your                       property. Consider shading (from roofs, surrounding trees, other buildings, or antennas) as well as whether your property has               multiple roofs. These factors can all influence which type of solar inverter you should opt for. Read more: Solar Shading - What              Impact Does it Have on Your Solar Energy Production?
  • Safety: Safety should be at the forefront of your decision-making when it comes to selecting components, especially solar                      inverters. Consult an expert for site specific safety advice while still maximising your solar energy output. 

Ultimately, the best solar inverter for your solar energy system will depend on your specific needs and budget. It’s important to do your own research and consult with a professional solar installer to determine the most appropriate inverter for your system (we can help with this! Contact us here).
