Enphase Energy is releasing a solar power system that has mini-inverters on each solar panel. This will allow the user to view performance on individual panels. Very cool. Now you don’t have to wonder which panel is under producing or failing.
The inverter is typically a large gadget (looks like a big car audio amplifier) or set of gadgets that you have in addition to the solar panels on the roof.
This technology WILL be the future and is headed in the right direction. The start-up company has already raised 6.5 million in funding. The company has already launched beta units with Solar installer Borrego Solar.
