What's the difference between micro inverters and optimisers? Finn Peacock January 23, 2018 11:17 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 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? Can I add batteries to a microinverter based solar system? 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.
