Solar panels are not the only component that you should be researching about while considering installing a solar rooftop at your property. Solar power inverters play an equally important role in a solar system; they convert the electricity your solar panels create into a form that can be used by the appliances, lighting, and other electronics that run on electricity (Inverter converts Direct Current to Alternate Current). Carbontrack concludes, the solar inverter works as a middleman, and without it, the power collected by the panels would be worthless. Thus, it is important to purchase all the solar system components with careful research.
How long will my solar inverter last?
Solar panels usually last for 25-30 years and thus prove to be a worthwhile investment in the long-term. But how long do solar inverters last? Solar Inverters usually come with the warranty of 10-15 years. That is because they genuinely have a lot of work to do. There are different types of inverters available in the market and each have a different lifespan based on their usage.

According to an article published by PV Australia, micro inverters have a higher life span than the string inverters. Inverters might go dead at the end of their warranty times and it might be the time to replace them.
