Pros of the Enphase IQ7+
No String Sizing Requirements
With micro-inverters, you don’t have to worry about how many panels you group together. This means they are less impacted by shading. They are also easier to expand. Start with one panel and one IQ7+ if you want. This allows you to offset a portion of your utility bill as soon as possible, then expand the system as budget allows.
One thing you really like about the IQ7+ is how extremely easy they are to install. There’s an input for your panels and an output to chain the Q cables from unit to unit, with the last one plugging into your junction box.
From the junction box to your breaker panel, you’ll install standard household AC wiring, which is much easier and cheaper to install compared to the DC wiring used with string inverters and optimizers. This can save you a lot of time, money and hassle messing around in your attic.
It’s also dead simple to tell at a glance whether your system is functioning properly, thanks to a light on the unit that changes color based on its status:
- Green: Everything is working.
- Yellow: Micro-inverter works, but is not communicating with IQ Envoy monitoring system.
- Red: Micro-inverter is not working and panel is not producing power.
Compatible with 60-cell and 72-cell panels
Standard solar panels contain either 60 or 72 cells. Since there’s no difference in performance or cost-per-watt between the two options, it’s nice to have access to both when designing your system. The IQ7+ is configured to work with both options.
Since 72-cell panels are physically larger, you’ll be installing fewer panels and micro-inverters. That means less racking material, fewer holes in the roof, and fewer connections to hook up, which makes installation quicker and easier on the whole.
The IQ7+ comes with a standard 15-year warranty. If one of your micro-inverters ever malfunctions at any point in your system’s lifetime, you’re covered for a free replacement. No maintenance fees or hidden ownership costs to worry about.
We recommend the IQ7+ in the following scenarios:
- You want to start small and expand later
- You want a system that is easier to install
- You need a system that is highly shade-tolerant
