    Had 2.02kw stystem in stalled 2nd dec.
    Have sunny boy 1700 invertor on system. noticed that invertor maxed out at 1680watts. Should i have had bigger invertor installed by my installer?

    Is 130kw in this period ok for gerenation? 35 deg pitch. sw facing and in north east scotland.

    All seems good to me.

    Yield will get better month on month from here on in.

    By June you'll be giving it the furry lipstick.

    Trust me.

    PVI 2.0 power one would be my choice but thats the thing we all like different inverters...

    I'd have probably gone for it too, but it's hard to justify the extra size.

    Why would it have been your choice?

    Lower kick in with voltage? Is that such a big thing? Does it really offer any yield advantage?
