Enphase Micro Inverters on a hot roof? Yes, they stand the heat!

Enphase microinverters generate less heat than other inverters, and they do a better job of protecting internal parts from heat.

When designing the IQ microinverters, Enphase engineers applied a decade of reliability lessons learned from over 17 million microinverter shipments. IQ microinverters use proven components and pass all measures of Enphase’s rigorous, million-hour reliability test.

The IQ range has also been successfully field-tested on rooftops in Australia and Arizona, two of the hottest places in the world in summer:

  • Zero Enphase Microinverters shut down due to high ambient temperatures
  • Less than 1% of Enphase Microinverters’ internal temperature readings exceeded 70˚
  • Zero Enphase Microinverters recorded an internal operating temperature close to or above the rated maximum of 85˚

Many customers ask our solar team about the performance of electronics on a hot Australian roof. It is a critical issue that microinverter manufacturers must overcome in order to deliver a quality product to market.

The industry-leading performance of Enphase products with zero heat-related failures is exactly why almost all Solaray customers choose to install Enphase Microinverters.
