For our solar installs, we serve the entire Bay Area as well as the Central Valley areas directly to the east. This includes southern Santa Clara County, where the city of Morgan Hill is located. Here, we installed 19 Japan Solar all-black 280-watt panels. These panels are paired with 19 Enphase microinverters. We expect this customer’s solar system to produce 9971 kilowatts of electricity, enough to offset their electrical consumption.
With Enphase microinverters, each panel literally has its own inverter. If in the rare chance a microinverter were to fail, production will still be at 94.7% until the microinverter is replaced. In contrast, if a single central inverter were to fail, that means 0% production until the inverter is replaced.
And the the customer can monitor their production online – by the panel, on any device.
