The inverter is the crucial part of any solar power system but is often overlooked as it’s less visible than the solar panels on the roof.
It’s the smarts of the system, optimising constantly to ensure maximum energy efficiency. Unfortunately though it’s usually the first component to fail as it works harder than any other part of the system.
That’s why it’s vital to choose the right inverter – both in terms of the right brand and the right model to suit your system and needs.
The brands we choose to work with are Fronius and Enphase – two of the most highly-regarded inverters on the market.
Fronius are widely thought of as the leading inverter brand on the market. Established and manufactured in Austria since 1945, Fronius now offer tech-support and service & repair right here in Australia, producing the highest-quality inverters tailored for local conditions.
Optimisation is paramount in maximising your investment and Fronius inverters do not disappoint. They are devoted to maximising your self generated power and therefore reducing energy costs.
Efficiency of Fronius inverters averages 97-98%.
With an integrated energy management function, the Fronius SnapINvertor can control the power flow directed to a specific electrical appliance based on the power production of the PV system. This automatic load shifting optimises self-consumption of generated solar power, fast tracking payback.
With the Fronius ‘smarter, lighter, more flexible’ SnapINvertor range offers Wi-Fi System Monitoring and is smart grid ready. Fronius’ state of the art monitoring allows you to have full overview of your photovoltaic system and total control over its output and function – at home and on the road.

Penrith Solar Centre now offers the ENPHASE IQ 7 & IQ7+ Micro inverters. This system is the world’s most technologically advanced inverter system. This micro inverter features higher efficiency and power, all whilst having less components than its predecessor. With the inverter undertaken 1 million hours of testing, the 7th generation of Enphase Micro inverters delivers maximum safety and reliability.
Whether it’s a leaf, dirt, or a cloudy day, obstructions happen. All the time, to every system. With micro inverters, only the individual panel is affected, while the others keep performing to their fullest.
A string inverter system can only perform as well as its lowest-performing panel. So if shade or a pile of leaves hinders one panel’s performance, every other panel operates at the same diminished capacity.
- 1 million power-on hours of rigorous testing
Enphases industry leading R&D and manufacturing standards include our 1 million power-on-hours of rigorous testing before any micro inverter generation.
Reduced part count and no moving parts but 5 million ASICS means less wear and tear, greater durability and greater flexibility as grid requirements change.
- Modest internal temperature rise
low voltage reduces thermal cycling and component stress, a primary cause of wear-out in other inverters.
- IP67 enclosure
The double insulated polymeric Q 7 enclosure is resistant to dust and capable of withstanding water immersion between 15 centimetres and 1 metre for 30 minutes.
PV system design philosophy has a significant impact on both prevention and suppression of fires. With its all AC design, the Enphase IQ system mitigates the risk of fire by avoiding distribution of high DC voltage and high DC current altogether.
Be safe and install Enphase.
