Solar Inverter Options
The solar inverter for your PV system is a critical component. As with the solar panels, we are happy to install any suitably sized inverter you request. However to make your life easier, the following is our recommended selection of inverters. They have been chosen for reliability, value, warranty, and quality. Please remember that during the lifetime of your solar panels, the inverter will probably need to be replaced, so quality and warranty service, are critical factors to consider.

SMA Sunny Boy Inverters
Packed full of innovative technology. The Sunny Boy HF series, provides one of the highest yields, for transformer-based solar inverters, in this performance class.Its modern graphic display and wireless Bluetooth communication system, make the device highly user-friendly. With unrivaled build quality it is the Rolls Royce of inverters.
It comes with a standard 5 year warranty, that can be extended to a massive 25 years.
Higher financial benefits, through maximum yields, with an efficiency rating of 96%; one of the highest in it’s class.
Up to 1.5% higher energy output due to SMA’s OptiTrac system, which enables the solar inverter to react quickly and accurately to changes in conditions, e.g. shading.
Clear, user friendly, graphic display, providing relevant performance values, in an easy to understand format. Bluetooth interface means no unnecessary wiring, for a neat and tidy installation.
Monitoring apps & portals Included with all inverter systems
Whilst previously separate monitoring systems have been required, all of our suggested systems and inverters come with their own effective monitoring portals, that can be accessed via computer or mobile phone app. No separate monitoring device is required, just available onsite wifi.
Part of the selection criteria for the systems we recommend is their proven, reliable and intuitive and easy to use monitoring systems. Solar Edge has the ultimate monitoring portal, with even panel level monitoring capabilities, and both SMA and Solis have very user friendly systems.
