Whether your solar panel inverter has unexpectedly stopped working or you simply need to replace your solar power inverter to a more efficient one so you can invert more electricity and make use of your solar array more, it doesn't really matter.
Before we talk about the cost of a solar inverter replacement, let's talk about your solar inverters and the role they play in solar photovoltaic panel installations.
Essentially, it is your solar inverter that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) which can be used in your Pickering home. Here's how it works:

So, now you're probably thinking that replacing your solar inverter is pretty important if you have noticed problems with output, it's outdated, or you want to be able to store more electricity for future use rather than wasting it.
But did you know there are different types of solar inverters? And the type, along with other factors, could significantly affect the amount of money you'll spend on replacement and installation...

String inverters will also cost quite a bit to have them installed correctly by a professional team of installers like ours at Panelit Solar. And again, different factors will affect the price range of the job.
But on average, the cost of a replacement string inverter in the UK, including wiring and installation costs, is likely to be between £500 to £1500, depending on the efficiency of your solar inverter. Cheaper, more common inverters will cost less than a newer inverter capable of up to 99% efficiency when inverting from DC to AC, for example.
Depending on the type of inverter and its location, a replacement should take no longer than a day or two. Micro inverters are slightly more difficult because of all the wiring and connecting of each individual inverter to the solar panel and then to any batteries you have installed as part of your system.
String inverters will take less time, but their location may prove tricky for replacement, and the connectivity of each panel may prove difficult, so in these cases installation may take a while longer.
Each job is different, but it shouldn't really go beyond a day or two.
