No. The cheapest price per watt is usually just that. The lowest cost solar materials are rarely, if ever, the best. We went into solar to install the very best solar materials available. Our customers and solar manufactures love our method.
- Dangerous high voltage DC solar has many drawbacks like a single point of failure issues. None with Enphase.
- Only 10-year warranties on most other systems. 25 years of parts and labor with Enphase.
- Solar is much safer and reliable with Enphase microinverters.
We don’t offer leases because our average system offers an ROI of 4 to 6 years. Purchasing is a way better deal than paying a leasing company for the next 20 years. Unsecured solar loans are easier to get approved for and you will own your own solar power plant in a fraction of the time. All our panels and inverters have 25-year warranties. The solar panels made 30 years ago are still working at 90% efficiency. We convert the dangerous DC power to Safer AC energy up on the roof, keeping the High Voltage DC far away from homeowners and installers permanently.
Only if you are using the older DC string or central inverter (big box on the wall) system. The higher wattage panels are more expensive plus often larger and harder to handle. The higher wattage panels are required to overcome the inefficiencies of old DC string inverters. There are add on gadgets designed to make DC string inverters (SolarEdge/Maximizers or Optimizers) more like the new AC micro-inverters. AC is safer with no single point of failure. DC is a much more dangerous energy source requiring metal pipe and extensive grounding plus danger labels all over your system. The panels regardless of manufacture are all basically the same. There is no Yugo vs Lexus comparisons. Salespeople will say different but It’s like comparing Toyota and Honda. We have tried many brands and other than frame color black or silver and color/shape of the cells Mono or Poly, they are all essentially the same. Roughly the same size, same weight, same efficiencies-all are very very close. It’s the inverter that makes the AC difference, not the wattage or the size or brand of the DC panel. The biggest differences in the panels are their warranties (all still similar). We are currently installing Solaria solar panels paired with the appropriate IQ7+ AC power Microinverter. String inverters come with a standard 10/12 year warranty. Enphase microinverters come with a standard 25-year warranty. Remember it’s not the higher wattage DC panels you want, it’s the highest wattage AC Micro inverters you want. AC power is what you use in your home. Selling DC watts is a sales tactic. The inverter has always been the weak spot in solar energy. Micro-inverter based systems address several issues with older string inverter-based systems while improving monitoring and shading issues. The sun produces more energy in one second than human beings have produced in all of our history. In less than a week, the sun sends out more energy than we could make by burning all the natural gas, oil, coal, and wood on Earth. This is why we believe that solar energy is the obvious solution to many of our energy needs today and for decades into the future.
