Wholesale Solar Inverters for sale

Besides solar panels, there are other components like solar inverters that are critical for both consumers and businesses. Particularly, if you are a solar installer, adding solar inverters to your inventory will help your business grow since users need this equipment to maximize and regulate the solar energy of their solar system. 

Solar power inverters have a crucial role to play in a solar system as they convert the electricity of solar panels to make them usable for running various appliances, lighting, and other electronics at homes or businesses.

Before buying solar inverters and supplying them in your local area, you need to be aware of all the functionalities of solar inverters, and the different types of inverters available. Thereafter, you can compare solar quotes on our site with various inverter types.

Why Inverter for PV Systems?

When the solar photovoltaic (PV) systems collect the sunlight, electrons inside the solar cells are activated, which then produce direct current (DC) energy. Then circuits within the cells capture that energy for use at households and offices. 

This is where your business can make its mark by supplying solar inverters to users. Most homes and offices use alternating current (AC) energy, not DC, so the energy that their solar panels generate is not useful in itself.  

Solar inverters convert the direct current (DC) output of panels to the alternating current (AC) on which most residential and commercial appliances run. In short, the inverters work as the mediums between the solar panels and the residential and commercial buildings’ electrical setup. Without the inverter, the power generated by the solar system is kind of useless. 

In simple words, the whole process is when solar panels capture sunlight and converts it into energy, which is sent to the inverter, which turns the DC energy into AC energy. After the energy conversion, solar electricity can power all the appliances and electronics. If the solar panels produce more electricity than required, it goes back into the grid.

Types of Solar Inverters

There are mainly three types of solar inverters — string inverters, micro-inverters, and power optimizers. All these inverters have a different system. However, they have the same function, which is collecting DC power from batteries and convert into AC, though with different levels of efficiency. As a solar installer, you can guide your customers, which type of inverter is suitable for their home or office. Here are the details on each type of inverter:

String Inverters 

String inverters are standard centralized inverters. Usually, a majority of small solar systems use string inverters or “centralized” inverters. In a solar PV system that comes with a string inverter, all the solar panels are connected together into “strings.” 

When the panels generate energy, it all goes to a single inverter, which is generally placed in a residential building, in a garage, or in the basement. The inverter will convert all the electricity from solar panels into AC electricity to power a property.

String inverters are the most economical among other options and are a proven inverter technology. These inverters are also the easiest to maintain as they are easy to access. 

If a solar system uses a string inverter, it will produce limited electricity. It means using string inverters with a solar system can create a bottleneck when it comes to producing electricity. In fact, overall production of electricity may go down drastically even just one or two panels are in the shade or do not operate properly.

Power Optimizers

Power optimizers work as an option to pair with a string inverter. This type of inverters is considered a compromise between string inverters and microinverters. Just in the case of microinverters, power optimizers are placed on the roof next to individual solar panels. However, systems that have power optimizers still send energy to a centralized inverter.

Power optimizers do not convert the DC electricity into AC electricity at the solar panel site. Rather, they prepare or condition the DC electricity by fixing the electricity voltage, and at that certain point, the electricity is sent to the string inverter. A system that pairs power optimizers with a string inverter is considered more efficient than that uses a stand-alone string inverter.

Similar to microinverters, power optimizers are capable of improving the efficiency of a solar panel system, and they are cheaper less than microinverters. Power optimizers also provide the benefit of monitoring the performance of individual solar panels. The systems with power optimizers can still generate sufficient electricity even if one or two panels are not functioning or underperforming.

Microinverters

Microinverters are high-performance inverters for complex solar systems. Typically, microinverters are “distributed” inverters. Solar PV systems with microinverters have a small inverter installed for each individual solar panel. 

Instead of sending energy from every panel to a single inverter, microinverters convert the DC energy to AC energy on the roof itself.

Microinverters are located on the roof near the solar panels, due to which these inverters are more efficient than string inverters when it comes to converting energy. Solar systems with microinverters can still generate electricity, even if one or two panels do not perform properly. 

Microinverters also enable to monitor of the performance of specific solar panels, which makes it easier to identify solar production issues if they crop up. 

The cost of microinverters is significantly higher than string inverters and can be more challenging to maintain or repair if any problem occurs because they are located on the roof.

Distributors

Solar Products Distributors

Distributors are those companies working as big warehouses that served as the middlemen between the consumer/customer and the manufacturer. Typically, in distribution, a company is handling the sourcing, stocking and logistics but nowadays they are also helping manufacturers in product designing and solving other business conflicts. 

Aside from other industries, distributors also play a vital role in the solar industry. Solar distributors become long-term partners of solar manufacturing companies and even solar contractors. They are not only serving as warehouse facilities but partners that also provide strategic solutions to help solar companies achieve their desired outcomes. Solar distributors assist solar manufacturing companies by storing. handling and shipping their solar products to their buyers. On the other hand, they help solar contractor companies in outsourcing high-quality solar products. 

These solar distributors are the ones who deal with homeowners who want to go solar, businesses that work with the solar industry and solar installers who offer solar system services to both residential and commercial customers. But on top of that, the solar distributor’s main role is to maintain its commitment to outsourcing and handling high-quality products and delivering them to customers at a good value. 

Up to these days, many solar distributors have been operating and helping many solar companies in distributing their products. So, if you are looking for the most trusted and reliable solar distributor, you can easily find one by checking out solar outsourcing companies that provide easy access to reliable information, news, data and a list of solar suppliers and distributors near you.

India’s Solar Energy

Indian solar power or solar power in India is a rapidly growing industry and ranks among the world’s top three nations in solar energy production. The country’s solar installed capacity was 30.071 GW as of July 31, 2019.

India has the lowest capital cost per megawatt (MW) to install the solar power plants, which makes the country the cheapest producer of solar power. The Indian government has set the target of 100 GW capacity for 2022, and so far it has reached 30% of that target.

One of the tropical countries in the world, India receives solar radiation of almost 3,000 hours of sunshine throughout the year which is equivalent to more than 5,000 trillion kWh. The main reason why the country is an ideal place to generate electricity from solar energy. Some states in India that have a great potential for tapping solar energy due to their location include Orissa, Andhra, Bihar, Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Punjab.

However, India as a rapidly growing economy with almost more than 1 billion population is also facing a large amount of energy demand. When it comes to electricity production and consumption, India stands on the fifth spot worldwide. As the production of electricity continues expanding over the years the population of the country is also expanding continuously, the reason why energy supply must be prioritized to increase the inability to match the country’s needs and demands. Until now there is still more than 72 percent of the population living in villages and half of the villages live in a home without a supply of electricity.

Almost 53 percent of the power being produced in the country is coming from coal however, it was predicted that the coal reserves of the country won’t last beyond the year 2040 to 2050. With this, India focused its interest more on renewable energy, energy efficiency and power conservation. To meet this rising demand, they think solar energy is the best form of energy to generate in order to fulfill the country’s energy needs and also served as the bridge of the demand-supply energy gap.

Solar power in India is considered as one of the fast-growing solar industry worldwide. In fact, India ranks among the world’s top three nations in terms of solar energy production. As of August 2019, the country managed to achieve a solar installed capacity of 30.709 GW.

Furthermore, India has the lowest capital cost per megawatt (MW) to install solar power plants all over the globe, the reason why the country is considered the cheapest producer of solar power. The Indian government already reached the 30 percent target of the planned 100 GW capacity target for 2022 which was achieved four years ahead of the scheduled. This 100 GW solar capacity includes 40 GW from rooftop solar along with this a 100 billion US dollar target investment. The rooftop solar power accounts for 2.1 GW wherein almost 70 percent of it is commercial or industrial solar power. As of now, India has established almost 42 solar parks for the promoters of solar plants.

India was able to expand its solar generation capacity by 8 times, from only 2,650 MW in May 2014 to over 20 GW as of January 2018. In the year 2015 to 2016, India managed to add a solar capacity of 3 GW,  another 5 GW from 2016 to 2017 while over 10 GW was added in its solar capacity by the year 2017 to 2018 with the average current price of its solar electricity dropping to 18 percent below the coal-fired’s average price.

Moreover, India is also developing an off-grid solar power for local energy needs aside from its large-scale grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) initiative. Solar products have significantly helped Indians to meet their rural needs and at the end of the year 2015, less than one million solar lanterns were sold in the country that reduced the need for kerosene. In the same year, there were 118,700 solar home lighting systems installed while the national program provided 46,655 solar street lighting installations. In addition to that, almost 1.4 million solar cookers were also distributed in India.
