A solar panel inverter converts the direct current (DC) electricity generated by your solar panel system into alternating current (AC) for use in your home or premises. Inverters will usually do this with 93-96% efficiency, but some newer inverter models can achieve an efficiency rating between 97-99%. This integral part of your solar panel system is constantly working to generate as much electricity from the sun as possible, and is therefore likely to be the first element of your system that will need replacing. Depending on the quality of the inverter, they can last anywhere between 5 – 15 years before requiring replacement.
Does Your Solar Inverter Need Replacing?
Is your inverter:
Generating less Power?
Is your generation meter showing that you are producing less energy – or none at all? A drop-off in productivity is usual as systems age, but a sudden decline may mean that your inverter is starting to fail.
Have Your Bills Started to Increase?
If you are now having to pay more for power, you may be generating less electricity through your solar panel system than you thought, with a resultant increase in the electricity you have to purchase from your supplier.
Inverter Error Messages
Error messages or warning lights generated on the solar inverter give an indication that the system is not working correctly. You need to have these issues corrected quickly to ensure the system remains safe in your home or premises.
New Solar Panel Inverters
We can replace your failing solar panel inverter. The price of a new solar inverter is dependent on the size of your solar panel system and the type and quality of the new inverter required.
