DIY Solar Micro-inverters

Micro-inverters offer a cost-effective way to start producing solar power. These systems generally consist of a small grid tie inverter that connects directly to a single solar panel and produces AC power on it‘s output. The unit is intelligent enough to produce the power at the exact voltage and phase of your existing grid power. The end result is that your home consumes all the solar power your system can produce and only after this do you begin using your municipal supply.

You can begin with a single micro-inverter and panel combination and can add as many of these systems to your grid as you like and at any time. They are totally scalable, so you can start with a mere 500W worth of panels and over time build your system up to a significant 5kW system capable of running your entire household!

Our flagship microinverter, the bestselling MI-600 microinverter handles two PV modules simultaneously with dual MPPT.

  • Maximum Power Output: 600W (from two solar modules)
  • Individual MPPT for each panel
  • Peak Efficiency: 96.7%
  • Dimensions: 220mm x 170mm x 28mm
  • Weight: 3kg
  • Up to 14 solar modules (7x MI-600s) in a string with a 20A breaker
  • 10 and 25 year warranties available

The kit includes:


○ MI-600 micro-inverter
○ 2 x 270W Tier 1 solar modules
○ 8 x Powarsnap clips
○ 4m Solarsrut bracket
○ Handy installation booklet

Easy to install

 Just follow the simple instructions provided in the included booklet. You will need to have a qualified electrcian check the system and do the AC connection for you.

    Good day For safety in case of Escom failure, is change over switch included to prevent feed back from this system into grid? Where are your offices? Answer:
    Hi Jack, grid tie systems shut down automatically in the event of a grid failure, i.e they don't work at all when there is no mains power present. This is a legal requirement and the functionality is built into every legal grid tie inverter. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Hi Guys,Just to make sure I understand, if I purchase the kit and install it now, I can add more micro-inverters later or more PVs into the string to produce more DC and in turn more AC out on the same micro inverter? Do you get a 2 KW grid tie inverter that as time goes by I can just add more and more panels until it is "full"?Thanks guys.Regards Answer:
    HI Craig. Yes, you can continue adding microinverters indefinitely. Yes we have one available here: https://www.solar-shop.co.za/inverters/104-solis-20kw-mini-4g-single-tracker-grid-tie-inverter.html Regards Solar Shop Support

    Hi 2 questionsReplus 300-EU Can you limit the output by switching in or out various panels ( grid feedback prevention ) Does it work on its own without need of power line comms devices etc Thanks Answer:
    Hi John, no you can't prevent back feeding with this inverter. The inverter itself works on its own. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Hi please forward the installation booklet to me. Is the MI-600 the Hoymiles type? What can I use to monitor how much I’m saving on this micro inverter and what is the cost? Answer:
    Hi Ralph, you can find the manual here: http://www.hoymiles.com/Download/MI-500%20MI-600%20MI-700%20Microinverter%20User%20Manual-R1.pdf You can use this device to monitor all your microinverters: https://www.solar-shop.co.za/micro-inverters/185-hoymiles-microinverter-dtu-0712885416899.html.

  • Asked by Hein
    on 20/11/2018
    Is all connectors and wiring included or must this be separately acquired for the AC link? If it is expandable the wiring should be able to carry the amperes (20 amps)? Answer:
    Everything is included to the point where you need to run your AC cable. The AC cable is not included since each installation will be different as you can daisy chain multiple inverters together and have a single ac cable running from them all. The AC cable should then be of the correct size as determined by your electrician. Typically 6mm for these installations. Regards Solar Shop Support
  • Asked by Chase Meredith
    on 25/01/2019
    What would you have to do to make it not feedback into the grid? Answer:
    Hi Chase. You would need to buy the Data Transfer Unit, (https://www.solar-shop.co.za/micro-inverters/185-hoymiles-microinverter-dtu-0712885416899.html) which among other things, can control or stop any power export from happening. Only one DTU is required per installation, i.e. whether you have one or 10 microinverters, you would still only need one DTU. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Good dayWhat else do I need to connect this to my house system and prioritize production?etc.. Answer:
    Hi Wilfried, you'll need some AC cable and a circuit breaker to connect the kit to your DB. The connection must be done by a qualified electrician. Regards Solar Shop Support

    question 2 : how about sin wave synchronisation ? How does this happen ?regards Wilfried Answer:
    Hi Wilfied. Synchronisation (frequency, voltage, etc) with the grid is done automatically by the unit in accordance with the South African NRS097 grid code for which it is certified. This is a standard function which any decent grid tie inverter. Regards Solar Shop Support.
  • Asked by Herman
    on 14/02/2019
    Does this micro-inverter have grid-tie limiting? I.E. does it prevent prepaid meters from charging you when the system is overproducing power? Answer:
    Hi Herman. No, not on an individual level. If you wish to limit export you will need to buy the DTU unit. This will limit export and also allow web based monitoring of the system. You only need one DTU per installation. Regards Solar Shop Support
