What is the difference between a string-inverter and a micro-inverter?

Most systems use string-inverters but in certain situations mirco-inverters can be a better choice. Micro-inverters convert power from a single solar module, so one micro-inverter is required per panel. Whilst this makes them a more expensive option, they can be a better choice if shading is a problem on site. This is because a string inverter system can only perform as well as its lowest-performing panel. So if shade impacts one panel’s performance, every other panel operates at the same reduced capacity.
