Re: Enphase inverters?

yes we will be carrying those in all likelyhood.  search the term "enphase" in the forum (top of the page, right of community tab) to see other threads regarding the new inverters.  if you go to their website they have more info and videos. 

cheers,

Re: Enphase inverters?

When I saw these I thought my dream had come true. But after speaking with a tech rep and he explained that I would have to run a seperate 240 or 208 line into my home to use the things. I mean there must be quite a bit of a demand for something in the low end at this price , about $200 for this 200 watt inverter? If I recall I thought about actually using a variable step down xformer to match my 120v line voltage but since there were at least 2 phases I gave up.

BTW: Just a thought from an Old time ET. Would a variable step down xformer's(240 to 120) inductance cause an IV phase shift and confuse the inverters lock on the grids frequency. I could just see this thing constatntly going on and offline thinking the grid was out of sync.

Re: Enphase inverters?

you can always use an sma 700.  it will be more expensive, but it will meet your 120vac output requirement.
