Types of solar inverters at Menlo Electric

  • Microinverters

Microinverters are a type of inverter that are installed directly onto individual solar panels, converting the DC electricity generated by each panel into AC electricity. This allows for greater flexibility and optimization of energy production, especially in installations where shading or panel orientation varies. Microinverters also offer enhanced monitoring capabilities, allowing for detailed tracking of each panel's performance.

  • Hybrid inverters

Hybrid inverters combine the functionality of a solar inverter with that of a battery storage system, allowing for the integration of solar energy with energy storage solutions. These inverters enable homeowners to maximize self-consumption of solar energy, store excess energy for use during periods of low sunlight, and provide backup power during grid outages. They offer versatility and resilience, making them suitable for both grid-tied and off-grid applications.

  • On-grid inwerters

On-grid inverters, also known as grid-tied inverters, are designed to synchronize with the utility grid. They convert DC electricity generated by solar panels into AC electricity for immediate use in the home or for feeding back into the grid. On-grid inverters do not typically include battery storage capabilities, as they rely on the grid for backup power and energy balancing. They are ideal for maximizing energy savings through net metering arrangements.

  • Off-grid inwerters

Off-grid inverters are designed for standalone solar power systems that are not connected to the utility grid. These inverters convert DC electricity generated by solar panels into AC electricity for use in the home or facility. Off-grid inverters often include built-in battery charging capabilities to store excess energy for use when sunlight is limited. They are essential for providing reliable power in remote locations or areas with unreliable grid access.

  • Three phase inverters

Three-phase inverters are designed for larger residential or commercial solar installations that require three-phase AC electricity. They are capable of balancing power across three separate phases, ensuring efficient energy distribution in systems with higher power requirements. Three-phase inverters are commonly used in larger homes, businesses, and industrial applications to optimize energy production and distribution.

  • Single phase inwerters

Single-phase inverters are suitable for smaller residential solar installations that operate on a single-phase AC electrical system. They convert DC electricity generated by solar panels into AC electricity for use in the home. Single-phase inverters are compact, cost-effective, and easy to install, making them a popular choice for residential solar systems. They are ideal for maximizing energy self-consumption and reducing electricity bills.
