How big is the string inverter, how much space is required for it and where is it placed?
• A typical string or central inverter might take up about 300cm2 of space.
• A string inverter system has only one inverter, usually located next to your switchboard. This inverter connects to all of the panels in your array via one or two strings of wires, which send all solar-generated energy to the string inverter. The size therefore depends how many panels you have.
