Did you know that solar microinverters last significantly longer compared to central inverters?.
That is the reason why microinverters typically come with a warranty of 20-25 years and remain functional 10-15 years longer than central inverters.
A microinverter is an electronic equipment used in photovoltaic cells for changing the waveform of current. It converts power from a single solar module from DC electricity to 240v AC electricity and is attached to each panel in a solar system.
A microinverter is also known as a solar microinverter.
As a solar installer, providing microinverters to customers besides the traditional string inverters is likely to diversify your business. Microinverters are more efficient and easy to handle; thus, many customers prefer buying them.
In this post, we have listed the top 12 leading microinverter manufacturers in China, and you can buy microinverters from these companies at wholesale pricing. Check out the list, and decide for yourself.
