Are Enphase Microinverters Right for Your Home?

Solar panels may get the glory, but it’s the inverter that does all the work in a solar PV system. Tucked beneath each solar panel, micro inverters are responsible for converting the direct current produced by your solar panels into alternating current your home can use.

With such an important role in safety, efficiency, and reliability, it's no wonder homeowners insist on using Enphase microinverters.

Enphase is the world's leading supplier of solar microinverters with 940,000 Enphase systems deployed to more than 110 countries.

The newest advancement in inverter technology, the Enphase IQ7 micro inverter, is a powerhouse. It is available in multiple configurations, engineered to meet the needs of residential and commercial systems.

Don’t let the lighter and more discreet form factor fool you. With the IQ7 micro inverter series, you get consistent high power production, even when panels are shaded or soiled. That’s not all. The Enphase microinverter burst mode helps produce energy even at sunrise and sunset. Now that’s powerful!

The IQ7 micro inverter is proven safe and reliable, thanks to more than one million hours of testing and an all AC design that eliminates dangerous high voltage DC on your roof. And in the event the grid fails or spikes, the IQ 7 microinverter allows for rapid shutdown to prevent your solar PV system from energizing the grid and risking the safety of others.

The advanced performance found in an Enphase IQ7 microinverter can even help with aesthetics. By producing more power, you can choose to install less panels, which can provide a more discreet rooftop installation. It is also easier for your for your solar installer to install and maintain

Frequently Asked Questions

Can FPL or my HOA prevent me from switching to solar?

The Florida Solar Rights Act is a law that forbids any entity—including homeowner associations—from prohibiting the installation of solar or other renewable energy devices on Florida buildings.

An association may require approval of a system installation and may establish restrictions for installations. However, any such restrictions must be reasonable, not arbitrary, and applied in a uniform manner for all association members. Also, any restrictions must not have the effect of impairing the performance, or increasing the cost, of a solar system.

In particular, a homeowner association may not prevent the installation of solar collectors on the roof of a home. The association may determine where on the roof the collectors may be installed, so long as the collectors face within 45 degrees of due south.

Finally, any requirement(s) that a system be screened from view by trees, fences, ground mounting racks, or a remote roof location that is hidden from the street, will generally violate the statute.

  • Solar panels and specific back-up battery systems qualify for a number of rebates, tax credits and incentives.
  • There is a cost associated with solar energy because you are paying for your system. 
  • Financing enables homeowners to make the transition with $0 upfront costs
  • Systems often cost the same amount monthly as your current FPL bill
  • Solar puts equity in your home because you own the system and increases the value a minimum of 4.1% - click here for the Zillow case study

Does solar increase my home value?

Not only can adding solar panels to a home save energy costs and help the environment, it also can potentially increase a home’s value. In 2019 Zillow found that homes with solar energy systems sold for 4.1% more on average than comparable homes without solar power. For the median-valued home, that translates to an additional $9,274.

The sale premium varies substantially by market. In Riverside, Calif., for example, homes with solar-energy systems sold for 2.7% more than comparable homes without solar power—a markup of $9,926 for the median-valued home in the metro. In the greater New York City metro, solar-powered homes have a premium that is double that of Riverside. At 5.4%, that’s an extra $23,989 in value for the typical home in New York. In three other coastal metro areas—Los Angeles, San Francisco and Orlando, Fla.—homes with solar power can fetch a premium of around 4%.
