Inverters

A solar inverter is a critical component in a photovoltaic system, converting the variable direct current output of a PV panel into a utility frequency alternating current that can be fed into the grid.

NWT Solar will recommend the right inverter for your installation and budget. All components sourced from outside the UK are proven and meet the standards set for UK installations.

We recommend Solar Edge systems, which involve the installation of power optimisers to ensure that the maximum amount of electricity is delivered even when some areas of the array are subject to shading.

This technology also includes a module-level monitoring system that tracks the output of each panel to highlight any issues. The online portal allows you to monitor the output of your system with a computer or smart phone.

The nature of solar string inverters means that factors influencing the output of an individual panel will influence other panels within the string.   Solar Edge technology means that this is no longer the case.
