SOLAR INVERTERS BRANDS
They are as good but just don’t have the big name. In fact we get to use Sungrow and Zeversolar quite a lot too. But Solax and ABB are in there as well.
The Fronus Primo ranges from 3kW up to 8.2kW whereas the Symo runs from 3kW up to 20kW. Both have free Wi Fi so you can see what your PV is doing on Solar Web. That's a free app you get when you log in on line. And in fact both of them can link up with the Smart Meter too...Read more
We have the one phase Sunny Boy and three phase Tripower range in our stock. There are 1.5kW up to 6kW single phase units and 3kW to 12kw three phase models. All have the great Wi Fi “Web Connected” app free as standard. You can trust their 5 year local warranty too. ...Read more

Solis is now a big player in PV solar. It’s a tough game to be in, but Solis has the goals on the board. Solis is a brand on the move on the global stage, and so has made its mark here too. It has taken over 20 years of hard work to build a great PV inverter range.....Read more
Solar Inverter Overview
The inverter is in fact the core of your PV system. Its core task is to change the DC power from the panels then to AC power. It then finds the right volt range that works best with the panels. The inverter will smooth out the power, and make it good for use in your home. An inverter may come in a range of types and sizes, also cost.
The one you see the most of is in fact a string inverter. But there are micro inverters as well, that you may have seen or heard of. This is where each panel has its own "IC" chip, that adjusts out put. So it’s like a little "brain" that each panel has. And they work like this for each panel that is on your roof. It’s a great thing to have for places that get shade, so we do use them when we need to.
But we like to do things the easy way. Well, why make things hard when they can be easy?! So a string inverter is the best way to go if we can. As we know, things tend to improve in solar all the time. But don’t forget if you have more parts, then there are more things to go wrong. So stay with simple if you can.
As we know, the day of the battery is here. Well, almost. We feel there is still some way to go with them, and don’t think they're a good deal right now. So we are a bit hesitant to get on board just yet. But if you have a question about them, just ask. We’ll be more than happy to help.
