What is an inverter?

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 fed into the grid (electrical power lines). Long lasting solar power systems require a high quality inverter. Low quality inverters have unfortunately failed in the New Zealand climate.
