What is a Micro Inverter?


Check out our new comic video to find out what a micro inverter is and why it’s different from its big brother, the string inverter.

    Hats off to Leonie Blume and her creative genius for coming up with a super fun and informative way to explain what a micro-inverter is within a photo-voltaic system. Even people that want to jump on the solar wagon start to glaze over when these systems are explained to them by enthusiastic solar geeks. A series of these brillant video’s from SMA would be used and shared worldwide to educate and excite a new generation. Thanks a Million !!!
