Commercial Rooftop Solar: The Challenges & How to Solve Them

Many people tend to believe that a 50-60kW inverter would be more suitable for a commercial PV system. But is bigger is better when it comes to rooftop PV?

Smaller inverters around 24kW are easier to get up a flight of stairs or other limiting access ways. 24kW is big enough to be cost effective and easier to install.
