I've seen 2 quotes - 1 for a system with Enphase microinverters, and another with a SolarEdge optimizer system. The Enphase system is a bit more expensive. Is one really better than the other?

Our company feels that micro-inverters are better. Optimizers add more equipment which means more things to go wrong. A string inverter is a single point of failure and you add multiple points of failure that by introducing optimizers. Installers prefer optimizers because it keeps their costs down while giving the impression that the optimizers match the ability of the micro-inverters. Micro-inverters, from enphase anyway, have a 25 year warranty. Spend the extra and go with the micro-inverters – any difference in price will be reduced by 30% because it will be eligible for the FTC.
