.Why use Microinverters?
a "conventional" solar PV system you will size and buy a "normal"
inverter to convert the DC electricity the PV panels produce into AC
electricity that your home or business use.Scalable System - Reduces upfront costs
mean you have to know how big a solar system you want to install now but also
keep in mind that you might want to upgrade the size of the PV system
sometime in the future. If you wish to install a 1 KW system now, you
will need to buy an inverter that can handle 1 KW of PV panels, but if
you think you might want a larger system in a couple years from now you
either have to buy a larger Inverter now or just buy the 1 KW inverter
and buy another when you decide to increase the system size.
Enphase system are smaller inverters and each solar PV Panel you install has
its own Microinverter. This means if you only install one PV panel
then you only need one small Microinverter. Then for every Solar PV
panel you install you simply add another Microinvertor.
This removes the need to decide now how big a PV system you might need years from now.Built In Monitoring
Enphase M215 Microinverters have a lifetime built in monitoring
system. Once you purchase the Envoy Gateway the performance of each
module can be monitored individually. Click image below for larger
The micro inverter is a modular system, each PV Panel you install works independently.
means if one module stops working or you get shading on one panel then
the rest of the system will keep working normally. With a
"conventional" inverter if you get shading on one panel the
performance of the rest of your PV system will drop to match the lowest
The new Enphase M215 comes with a Manufactures 25 year limited warranty (PDF
) which now matches the warranty on the PV modules themselves.

The wiring system of the Enphase system greatly simplifies the installation of the PV Modules.
