Solar Inverter Shade Covers, also known as Solar Inverter Covers, are an important accessory to any rooftop solar system.
Many people are unaware that solar inverters should be installed in a fully shaded location. Exposing solar inverters to direct sunlight can cause it overheat, reduce performance, decrease it’s lifespan and void the inverter warranty.
The inverter is the “heart” of a rooftop PV solar system, constantly pumping electricity through the “veins” of the house. They’re critical to the efficiency and effectiveness of the electricity produced. As tough and resilient as they are, care needs to be taken when choosing a suitable location to install the inverter.

If your inverter has been installed in direct sunlight or exposed to the elements, there is suite of high quality, manufacturer approved inverter covers available to protect your inverter and ensure it operates as intended for the years to come.
Solar Inverter Shade Covers
When choosing an inverter cover it is important to assess the features of the cover and determine what value you are getting for your money. A solar inverter is an expensive piece of electronic equipment that should never be protected with a sub-standard inverter cover.
Does it block direct sunlight and allow for adequate natural airflow? Has it been approved by the inverter manufacturer? Is it aesthetically pleasing? Will it last for 20+ years exposed to the elements? Is it designed to suit the inverter? These are the questions you need to ask.
