The purpose of a solar inverter is to change the direct current (DC) electricity that is generated from a photovoltaic panel into an alternating current (AC) that can be used by in-home appliances and the electricity grid. Because all photovoltaic panels produce electricity in Direct Current, an inverter is required for all solar power systems to make the electricity usable.

The solar inverter is often one of the most expensive parts in an alternative energy system. Because of this, most people underestimate the need for a solar inverter and purchase one that handles a smaller capacity than necessary in order to save money. One of the recommendations to avoid making this mistake and keep the up-front costs of a solar energy system down is to initially purchase fewer solar cells and add the rest depending on your energy needs rather than cutting your cost on the inverter.

There are many Solar inverters Australia companies that are competing in the solar inverter market. While there have been a lot of American-made inverters in the past, it's been discovered that they're not always operating at their advertised efficiency, resulting in several companies going out of business.

One of the biggest issues of having a solar power system is efficiency. The cost of building and installing a system is often expensive, and those who are willing to make the investment want to be sure to get their money's worth. Not only do the solar cells need to convert the sun's energy to electricity efficiently, but the solar inverter has a responsibility in efficiency as well. Solar inverters Australia companies are working to improve the efficiency of their products in order to make the products more marketable and attractive to those interested in solar power.
