What is a Solar Inverter?
A solar inverter is the part of a solar system that converts power from the solar panels (DC electricity) into usable electricity (AC electricity) for your home. It’s the heart of the system and needs to be chosen wisely to maximise energy efficiency and savings.
ABB is a Fortune 500 company operating in Switzerland, that manufactures robotics, power, electrical and automation technologies. In 2019 they announced they were exiting the solar inverter business, which is when Italian company FIMER acquired them.
