Inverters take the electrical from the solar panels which is DC and converts this to AC for your home to use. A centralized inverter will be used when there are no obstruction issues with panels, micro-inverters will used if there are shading or obstruction issues. The micro-inverters allow each panel to operate interdependently of each other to help maximize production.
