I get asked this all the time (Adam Rizzo, one of the founding partners of Palomar Solar). Why does Palomar Solar prefer Enphase microinverters over central inverters in residential applications? We were just like most solar contractors when we started out. We started with central inverters right about the time Enphase was coming to market. One of the partners at Palomar installed one on his home not convinced of this new technology. It wasn’t until about six months later when we received a call from a customer who was having trouble finding anyone who would install Enphase. We took it as the perfect opportunity to try it out and we have not looked back since. Why?
