Optimizing Your Energy from Solar Panels from Scientific American

Optimizing Your Energy Harvest for Each and Every Solar Panel


A friend recently sent me this Scientific American article that I hope you will find interesting.  There a big technology they don't mention:  Microinverters.  Microinverters optimize energy output panel by panel, allow you to have any number of panels, remove a single point of failure, and don't need hundreds of volts DC to operate.  They have lots of advantages to consider (See other articles on microinverters:  A Simple Way to Get More Electricity from Your Solar Panels - Microinverters and Another Major Advantage for Microinverters ).  They are not for every installation, but your installer should choose the right tool for the job and often for homes this is microinverters.
