What is the difference between string inverters and microinverters?

 

Key Metrics String Inverters Microinverters
Functionality Converts DC to AC for all solar panels connected in a string Typically converts DC to AC for each individual or a group of two panels
Efficiency Lower efficiency in partially shaded conditions More efficient than string inverters, especially in partially shaded conditions
Cost Cheaper High upfront cost but deliver higher lifetime value
Installation Installation is complex and time consuming Installation is easier and safer
Point of failure If one inverter in a string has a failure, the entire string will stop producing electricity, leading to larger losses affecting the rest of the system If a microinverter stops working, then only the panels connected to that microinverter will stop working, without affecting the rest of the system
