At Cuthill Electrical Contractors, we’re passionate about helping homeowners unlock the power of solar energy. 

One of the key decisions you’ll face when designing your solar panel system is choosing the right inverter. Inverters are the workhorses that convert the direct current (DC) electricity produced by your solar panels into usable alternating current (AC) electricity that powers your home. But with two main inverter options micro-inverters and string inverters – selecting the best fit can feel overwhelming.

This guide from Cuthill Electrical Contractors breaks down the key differences between micro-inverters and string inverters in easy-to-understand terms. 

By the end, you’ll be well-equipped to choose the inverter solution that best suits your needs and maximises your solar power potential.


String Inverters: The Traditional Powerhouse

Think of a string of Christmas lights. When one bulb goes out, the entire string loses power. String inverters operate similarly. Multiple solar panels are wired together in series, meaning the DC electricity produced by each panel flows through a single string inverter. This central inverter then converts the combined DC current into AC electricity that feeds your home.

Microinverters: Powering Each Panel Independently

Microinverters are like tiny superheroes for your solar panels. These compact units are mounted directly behind each panel, converting the DC electricity produced by that specific panel into AC electricity on the spot.
