Why do we use SolarEdge?

SolarEdge is an inverter with an optimizer attached to each solar panel.  This allows the SolaEdge to combine the benefits of module level generation that microinverters provide with a smart string inverter.  The combination means the inverter can see each solar panel and regulate the power output to “optimize” the system output.   This inverter also has the ability to keep DC voltages at a safe level.   SolarEdge is a relatively new entrant to the market, but has proven to be a reliable and forward-thinking company who keeps pushing energy optimization forward.  Their solar monitoring portal is easy-to-use and allows customers to easily watch their system generating electricity from the sun. SolarEdge

Along with their 25-year warranty, their environmental policy states: “The quality objective of SolarEdge is to ensure total customer satisfaction. It is the company policy to achieve the objective by developing and continually improving our products, services and quality management system to consistently meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of our customers.”

We believe you will love SolarEdge as much as we love how easy they are to install and use.

Product Warranty

“SolarEdge includes a 25 year warranty for power optimizers and a standard 12 year warranty for inverters, extendable to 20 or 25 years. We manage a rapid RMA process and generally ship a replacement unit within 48 hours at no cost, given the reported defect is eligible for coverage under the Limited product Warranty.

The warranty extension is available with a one-time payment fee and must be activated within 16 months of inverter shipment from SolarEdge.”

 

Residential Solutions

Solar energy systems include PV panels and inverters. Traditional string inverters have a number of significant drawbacks. SolarEdge DC optimized inverters overcome these traditional concerns to offer more energy, better maintenance, and enhanced safety.

More Energy

Traditional Inverter

SolarEdge Solution

  • MPPT per entire string – all modules receive the same current, regardless of their individual MPP
  • MPPT per module – current & voltage adjusted per module
  • Weak modules reduce the performance of all modules in the string or are bypassed
  • Maximum power from each module individually
  • Power losses due to module mismatch
  • 2%-25% more energy from the PV system

 

Constraint-Free Design

Power optimizers enable installation of:

  • Strings of uneven lengths
  • Modules in multiple orientations and different roof facets in a single string
  • Modules in shaded areas

More modules on the roof

More power, More revenue & More aesthetic

rooftops

Cost-Saving Maintenance

Module-level performance monitoring & remote maintenance lead to:

  • Less trips to site
  • Less time spent on site
  • Higher system uptime

Free module-level monitoring for system lifetime

Real-time full insight to system from anywhere

  • Easy access via web browser and mobile device

 

Enhanced Safety – SafeDC™

  • With SolarEdge, whenever AC power is off, DC wires are de-energized
  • Power optimizers shut down the DC voltage in the PV wires to protect installers, maintenance personnel, and firefighters
  • The SolarEdge inverter solution meets the advanced European safety standards

SolarEdge inverters are certified to IEC 60947 as a disconnection means between a PV inverter and a PV generator, and to VDE 2100-712 for safety for firefighting or maintenance.

Future Compatibility & Warranty

  • Low-cost inverter replacement out of warranty
  • 40% less than traditional inverters
  • SolarEdge flexible design allows modules of different power classes and brands in the same string
  • No need for expensive module inventory stocking
  • 25-year power optimizer warranty, 12-year inverter warranty, lifetime free monitoring
Commercial power optimizers
600W, 700W
 Commercial inverters
15kW, 16kW , 17kW, 25kW, 27.6kW, 33.3kW

Enhanced Safety

  • No high VDC during installation or maintenance – power optimizers and DC cables automatically de-energize when inverter is disconnected or grid power is shut down
  • Remote monitoring instead of diagnostics work at dangerous heights
  • Only inverter certified to IEC 60947 as a disconnection means and to VDE 2100-712
  • Better suited for future insurance requirements
