SolarEdge invented an intelligent inverter solution that revolutionized the way power is harvested and managed in a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. The SolarEdge direct current (‘‘DC’’) optimized inverter system maximizes power generation at the individual PV module level while lowering the cost of energy produced by the solar PV system.
Addressing a broad range of solar market segments, from residential solar installations to commercial and small utility-scale solar installations, the SolarEdge system consists of power optimizers, inverters, and a monitoring platform.
Since beginning commercial shipments in 2010, SolarEdge has shipped approximately 1.3 Gigawatt (‘‘GW’’) of inverter systems and products have been installed in solar PV systems in more than 70 countries.
- Optimal energy yield:Application of the SolarEdge system, by means of module level MPPT, almost inevitably leads to an optimal energy yield. Because of this, the pay-off time is often shorter and a higher yield is achieved for a given
- Maintenance:The SolarEdge system guarantees cost-effective maintenance by monitoring system performance at module level and remote problem solving. The SolarEdge system facilitates automatic warnings in case of system problems and offers a (mobile) web portal with virtual presentations of the entire system.
- Design:The SolarEdge system makes maximum use of space possible with a minimum design time. Different types of solar modules of different power classes can be applied in different orientations and pitch even in a single string.
- Safety:The system guarantees automatic shutdown of the DC of each module during installation, maintenance and in emergencies.
SolarEdge offers a complete, flexible and safe system, with a standard 25-year warranty on optimisers and a 12-year warranty on inverters. The SolarEdge system is only suitable for solar energy systems consisting of at least 8 solar modules.
