What are Solar Inverters?
If the solar panels are the “workhorses” of a solar power system, the inverter is the “brains” of the outfit.
A solar inverter is one of the most important elements of the solar electric power system. It converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panel into alternating 240V current (AC). This AC electricity then can be fed into your home to operate your appliances.
The electricity that is not used in your home is then either fed into the grid (electrical power lines) or into home battery storage. New hybrid inverters include an integrated battery management system.
Long lasting solar power systems require a high quality inverter with a robust convection cooling system. Low quality inverters have unfortunately failed in the Australian climate.
Why we choose SMA Inverters
With its German engineering and design, SMA is the chosen European PV inverter manufacturer brand in the Australian solar market*.
Over 750,000 SMA inverters have already installed across Australia alone, producing more than 35% of all solar electricity in the country.
100% of SMA inverters are comprehensively tested before leaving the factory to ensure reliable operation for the life of the inverter.
