What's the difference between micro inverters and optimisers? Finn Peacock September 24, 2020 11:50 Updated Follow We have a breakdown/analysis of the two here. Related articles I have received a quote for a solar system using a regular 'string' inverter and for a solar system using 'micro inverters'. Which is better? What panel brands do you trust? How much energy will I lose from clipping with 270W micro inverters on 330W panels? What inverter should I buy if I want to add batteries later? Since no one lives at home during the day, I would hardly save anything on the electric bill. So do you suggest buying a battery? Comments 0 comments Please sign in to leave a comment.
