Hi, I have had two quotes both by leading solar companies who have suggested somewhat contradictory products for my proposed solar installation.
One says ‘don’t worry about string inverters, go with a micro inverter’, the other suggested that micros are not ideal and a string inverter with Optimizers would work best. Both were solar edge inverters. Our roof is mostly west facing and there is some shading at different times of the day. The company suggesting the string inverter with Optimizers advises 11, 365w panels can be fitted on current appropriate roof space, their competitor wants to fit 13, 300w panels with a micro inverter. We work full time only home on weekends and not looking at a battery at this point. Can anyone shed light on which might be best?
