Is Your Solar Inverter Faulty?
Solar Inverters are complex pieces of equipment, and like all electronic devices can go wrong. But sometimes when it looks like the inverter is faulty it is actually a problem with other parts of your grid connected solar system.
No lights on the inverter?

If nothing happens, contact us. It may be that your inverter is faulty, and cheap inverters will often look dead, and not have any error messages.
If there are no lights, and nothing showing on the screen it may also be there is no DC power getting to the inverter. This is very easy for us to check, a visit from us will enable us to diagnose your problem.
