We used Enphase 215 watts on the earlier house, and M250 on the Canadian Solar panels. We have some shadowing issues on our roof, so micro inverters seemed best. The Envoy -S monitoring system gives us an excellent view into the workings of the system. Between the original 32-inverter system in 2013 and the present 24-inverter system installed in early 2016, we have had zero failures.... read more
With the Enphase microinverters we are able to see the production of our system in real-time. We can also see the historical production and the production of each panel. We really love these connectivity features. They work flawlessly, but we don''t have to worry about issues because they have a 25 year warranty.... read more
Work great, Happy that each panel has its own inverter.
Really advanced compared to everyone else and came with a 25 year warranty.
I have had no problems. They are performing as expected.
I know less about what is good and not good in this area. I do think micro-inverters are the way to go. I think they require less solar input to begin producing electricity. The monitoring options are great. Lot''s of data; even enough for a retired engineer.... read more
