Solar Power Inverters – Meeting Commercial Solar Energy Needs

As explained in our Solar Inverters section, a solar power inverter is a vital device needed to maximize solar energy system production. It is also at the heart of providing data for solar power production monitoring and troubleshooting when needed. For Southern Light Solar, finding the best solar inverter is as important as the solar panels. High efficiency panels can be negatively affected by improper power management including solar power inverter selection.

Designing solar power management for commercial buildings presents added challenges. The solar inverter converts and manages the generated power no differently from any other setup, large or small. Yet, for efficiency and cost effectiveness good designs aim to minimize the solar power components count even while maximizing energy production that inherently increase solar panel numbers.

Commercial solar power inverters should therefore be built for larger capacity. With that increased power per device comes increased need for reliability. Power production generates heat by its nature, and full cycling from low to high energy output means components need to withstand higher wear and tear.

Maximizing Commercial Solar Energy Production

In order to design and install the most effective and productive solar energy systems, Southern Light Solar regularly reviews the latest in solar power technology. We frequently modify our portfolio of solar power inverter products in an effort to find the best fit for the most customers.

Commercial solar systems typically are sized at 100 kW and as large as 1+ MW. The commercial inverter portfolio often will be different from the selections offered for home solar. Additional factors impact our choices to make sure that our final complete solar energy system designs are as productive and cost effective as they can be. Some of the features and factors we look as we steadily research product developments include the following:

  • Reputation for reliability under severe conditions and high cycling applications;
  • Supply, service, and support to make sure we are able to meet deadlines and rare in-field problems are resolved as fast as humanly possible;
  • The resulting portfolio gives us a proper range of design capacity. Solar power inverters and solar panel strings connected to them must be mated within specifications. Large capacity inverters should never be overrated for their application.
