Enphase Microinverters

Enphase Microinverters


Your Energy Solutions highly recommends Enphase Energy series of microinverters. The Enphase IQ8-Series microinverters come with an industry-leading 25-year warranty and are capable of pairing with solar panels up to 540-watts

Enphase Energy’s IQ8-Series microinverters are forward-engineered to work with battery-storage systems.

Each Panel Gets a Microinverter

  • Each solar panel fastens directly to an individual microinverter out of site, on your roof
  • All solar panels connect together in “parallel” instantly converting DC energy to AC energy, operating at 240 volts.
  • Microinverters are great for all residential PV applications and are an excellent value.
  • Enphase microinverters eliminate any single point of failure, guaranteeing your system uptime, reliability, and production. If one microinverter fails, the others continue to produce power without issue.

Industry-Leading 25 Year Warranty

  • All Enphase microinverters carry an unsurpassed, industry-leading, 25-year OEM warranty.

Ideal for All Residential Solar Installations (NOT just where shade exists)

Many inexperienced installers mistake Enphase for being the recommended product for installations where transient shade is present. Though microinverters are the best approach for those installations, they also harvest more power than any other any other type of inverter system in the solar industry.

  • MPPT (Maximum Power-Point Tracking): Enphase microinverters give increased energy production resulting from MPPT harvested at the panel level. Enphase MPTT can can result in as much as 26% more power production compared to any other type of inverter system.
  • Microinverters are also ideal for applications where solar panels receive transient shade from immovable objects such as nearby trees, chimneys, or adjacent structures.
  • Unlike central inverters, if one panel is shaded, only that shaded panel sees a drop in production. It does not affect production of other panels in the system.

Great for Multiple Roof Orientations

  • Microinverters are essential for PV solar systems with panels on multiple roof sections facing different directions. Enphase microinverters eliminate any possibility of “string mis-match”, inherent to regular string inverters.

Panel-Level Monitoring

  • “Enlighten”, the Enphase monitoring platform, enables real-time data and analytic measurements for production of individual solar panels as well as group performance. This platform is accessible from any computer, tablet, or smartphone, and in our opinion, is the best monitoring platform available in the industry.
  • The Enlighten portal allow you to track historical production information for every solar panel individually, down to real-time 5 minute increments. This level of monitoring ensures solar panel warranties can be met by panel manufacturers and enforced by consumers.
  • Panel level monitoring also allows YES, as your installer, to remotely diagnose any potential issues.

Number of Supported Microinverters

The maximum number of microinverters (and solar panels) supported depends on the size of your main panel (in amps).

Main Electric Panel Size IQ8PLUS IQ8M IQ8A
100 Amps
125 Amps
200 Amps
400 Amps

In the event you need a larger system than your home’s Main Electric Service Panel (MSP) can accommodate, YES proves in-house MSP upgrades. Contact Us to have one of our certified electricians inspect your home’s electrical system and provide you a quote. MSP upgrades are eligible for the 30% federal tax credit when installed in tandem with your new solar electric system.

Max Solar Panel Rating: The maximum solar panel size recommended before it’s more cost effective to go with a higher efficiency microinverter.

Max AC Output: Solar Panels produce electricity in Direct Current (DC) while homes, businesses, and the grid is wired in Alternating Current (AC). The inverter coverts DC to AC. This value is the maximum “useable” electricity that can be produced.


Clipping typically only occurs in the summer afternoon when solar irradiance is highest, and it happens when the AC-power rating of a solar panel exceeds the AC-power rating of the microinverter it is paired with. Why would you design this way? Simply put: faster ROI due to a lower cost system.

 This should also be considered on shaded project sites, as the electrical characteristics of the solar panel will be significantly less.

Determining if clipping should be built into your system requires a custom cost-benefit analysis. Contact us today and determine if it’s right for you. 


For buildings with a smaller Main Panel size, it may be advantageous to go with a smaller capacity microinverter to allow for more panels and a larger capacity solar panel to maximize production.

Going Solar with Enphase

Enphase is a highly-recommended way to go solar. Our energy consultants will help size your system, including determining which combination of solar panels and inverters that maximize production, reliability, and savings.
