    I have 4.3 KW on a 3 KW Sunny Boy and overall it generates the same as my 4 KW inverter with 4.1 KW of panels

    very pleased with system, it seems that 6kW panels on a quality 5kw inverter works great, but would not do it with a cheaper inverter. The sunnyboy link was very confidence building that its an acceptable solution.
