How a Solar Power Geelong Company is Increasing Solar Panel Efficiency Through Australian Micro Inverters


GEELONG, Australia November 2014 – Installing solar panels is an affordable and environmentally friendly option to power residential and commercial buildings. However if any part of the solar installation is in shade or part shade, the overall productivity decreases to what the lowest working panel is producing. This is where micro inverters can help.

Australian micro inverters increase the efficiency of solar panelling by working independently from each other. Consequently, a panel in shade is no longer a setback. In fact, micro inverters strengthen energy productivity when a roof is not north facing or has multiple roof applications.

So what are micro inverters? In technical terms, a solar micro inverter converts direct current (DC) from a single solar panel to alternating current (AC). The output from several micro inverters is then combined and often fed to the electrical grid.*

But put simply, the advantage of installing micro inverters is that they’re able to isolate each solar panel from the entire system without upsetting the total power production. This is particularly convenient if one or two solar panels (in a complete installation) are covered in debris. As a result, micro inverters are between five and 25 per cent more effective than string converters.

Since micro inverters are smaller in size, they’re less inclined to break down because of heat as they don’t have the same cooling requirements that large string inverters do. Micro inverters are also flexible and installation is limitless; users can integrate as many as they prefer to an existing system without losing power ratings.

Solar power Geelong company – City to Surf Solar Plus – is helping customers with tricky roof positions maximise the sun’s energy by offering micro inverter installations. The company has been installing solar power since 2008, providing clients in Geelong and surrounds with clean and green energy solutions. City to Surf Solar Plus also provides solar system maintenance and power monitoring, and uses only the highest quality solar inverters.

The family owned and operated business is Clean Energy Council accredited for grid-connect and standalone solar power design and installation. It has extensive solar experience with over 800 solar power installations in the Geelong region.

A past client of the solar power Geelong company, Jan Dorelat says, “From the initial phone call to completion – it has all happened so quickly and smoothly. We certainly made a great decision in choosing [City to Surf Solar Plus]. My new obsession is watching the inverter readout as the sunlight changes.

“We had heard horror stories from people of delays and poor workmanship when dealing with other companies. Thank you [City to Surf Solar Plus] for making this such a pleasant experience. My only question now is ‘why didn’t I do this months ago?’”
