AC Solar

AC Solar

In addition to traditional central solar string inverters we are pleased to be able to offer a new product called AC solar as an alternative. This innovative new product is huge step forward in both safety and flexibility of system design and installation and is set to gain an increasing presence in the solar market in light of the recent changes to installation of conventional DC systems.

These systems consist of a single inverter called a micro – inverter connected to each panel that produce 240 Volts AC on the roof, eliminating the need to run higher voltage DC cabling to a single inverter. The panels are then connected together to produce the required output in kilowatts. All of the necessary DC connections are done on the roof greatly minimising the potential for a DC arc. A cable is run directly to your switchboard and not to a central inverter.

Some key advantages are:

  • Far safer than conventional systems. High voltage DC cable in roof is no longer needed
  • Greater flexibility in design. Panels can be on different roof orientations
  • If a single panel or inverter fails or is party shaded it has no affect on the remaining system
  • Faster installation time and less parts required. No DC fuses or circuit breakers
  • Individual monitoring of each panel to easily identify performance and problems
  • Systems can be easily expanded
  • Almost any panel and micro – inverter combination is possible giving greater price flexibility
  • No need to run earth wires to exposed metal railing and panels , unlike traditional systems
  • Longer manufactures warranties up to 25 years as opposed to 5 –10 for string inverters
