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 panel owners can benefit from upgrading to a SolarEdge inverter system.
What are the benefits of SolarEdge Inverters and Optimisers
With traditional string inverters, the output energy of your system, is effected by the weakest operating Solar panel. This is because they are all directly interlinked. However, when using a SolarEdge inverter with SolarEdge optimisers, each panel works independently. As a result dirt, leaves or shading 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.
Compared to traditional string inverters, SolarEdge offer one of the best solar inverters on the market. This is because 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.
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. With the new release of the SolarEdge Energy Bank adding energy storage to your SolarEdge system couldn’t be simpler.
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. You can also choose to install SolarEdge panels, which have prebuilt in panel optimisers, or add their panel optimisers to the solar panel of your choice.
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 most string inverters come with a 5-10 year warranty, SolarEdge inverters come with 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.
