Who are SolarEdge?
SolarEdge are one of the leading brands within the solar industry, offering inverters and power optimisers. In 2006, SolarEdge’s innovation revolutionised the way we manage Solar PV systems. Their technology also changed the way we could capitalise on our solar generation. As a result, they are an essential part of Solar history, and many solar PV owners can benefit from upgrading to a SolarEdge inverter system,
What are the benefits of SolarEdge Inverters and Optimisers
Individual Solar Panel Performance
With traditional string inverters, the output energy of your system, is effected by the weakness operating Solar panel. This is because they are all directly interlinked. However, when using a SolarEdge inverter in your solar panel system, each panel works independently. As a result, shading, dirt or leaves on a single panel, will not impact the entire systems performance. This means more power can be generated, resulting in more savings on your electricity bill.
Greater Panel Efficiency
Compared to traditional string inverters, SolarEdge inverters are more cost effective, reliable and efficient. SolarEdge inverters have a recording breaking 99% efficiency. In comparison, most string inverters have an efficiency of 93-96%. As a result, your solar panel system will generate more energy, leading to a quicker financial return.
Solar Battery Ready
Adding a solar battery to your solar panel system couldn’t be more simple with SolarEdge. SolarEdge inverters and power optimisers are compatible with any AC coupled battery. This means you can upgrade your Solar PV system with a battery, such as the Growatt 6.5kWh at any time. What’s more, a SolarEdge system is also suitable for a solar compatible EV charger such as the Zappi. Overall, through a SolarEdge system it is easy to keep the majority of the green energy you produce at home.
With a SolarEdge system you can produce more power, due to its design flexibility. You are no longer limited by panels in partially shaded areas, nor arrays in multiple orientations or panel mismatching. This design flexibility means you can maximise your PV power. Furthermore, you can choose a layout to suit your desired aesthetics and energy needs.
SolarEdge comes with its own monitoring platform. This means you can access your solar systems real-time data 24/7. This includes your systems technical and financial performances. For example, individual panel performance, battery charge level, and energy consumption. This doesn’t require any extra hardware, and comes already integrated into your SolarEdge products. Essentially, this means any faults or failures are easier to detect. Furthermore, you will also receive automatic system alerts, which can be troubleshoot remotely. This monitoring platform is free to use for 25 years. The same length as your warranty for SolarEdge products.

SolarEdge offers advanced safety features. For instance, SolarEdge Inverters can automatically disconnect high DC current through your cabling. This reduces risk levels in cases of emergency and maintenance. In addition, SolarEdge offers arc detection and module-level shut down. These features can prevent possible fire risks.
A SolarEdge system is easier to maintain. Firstly, because SolarEdge has the capability to identify faults and send automated alerts to your solar panel installers. Secondly, because SolarEdge monitoring can pinpoint panel failures, reducing the time it takes to investigate system issues. This leads to both a reduced maintenance cost, and down time, allowing for easier rectification and more solar energy.
Furthermore, if a solar panel ever needs replacing, with SolarEdge you have the freedom to choose any panel you like, as you can mix and match.
Whilst a most string inverters come with a 5-10 year warranty, SolarEdge inverters come was a leading 12 year warranty. While their power optimisers come with a 25 year warranty. One of the many reasons why the team here at Deege Solar highly recommend SolarEdge products.
