Morningstar Solar Charge Controllers & Inverters

Is your system less-than-perfect? Ultimately, the health of your batteries will tell you that. But that’s a hard and expensive way to learn! Instead, learn how choosing the right solar charge controller up-front can make or break your off-grid system.

This webinar is conducted each month to introduce individuals to Morningstar and off-grid solar. It is also appropriate for experienced professionals who are looking for a refresher, or to have their pressing questions answered by one of our engineers. Attend this webinar to receive One NABCEP CE credit and  learn about:

  • Battery charging stages
  • Differences between PWM and MPPT controllers
  • Effects of oversizing PV arrays
  • Efficiency variations with output power
  • Electronic and environmental protections
  • Controller/inverter features and accessories
  • High voltage charge controllers
