SolarEdge for Residential Solar Power Use

SolarEdge logo

1. More Solar Energy

Illustration

Traditional Inverter

  • MPPT per entire string - all modules receive the same current, regardless of their individual MPP
  • Weak modules reduce the performance of all modules in the string or are bypassed
  • Power losses due to module mismatch
vs

SolarEdge Solution

  • MPPT per module - current & voltage adjusted per module
  • Maximum power from each module individually
  • 2%-25% more energy from the PV system

2. 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

3. 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

4. Enhanced Safety - SafeDC™

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

The 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 in cases of firefighting or maintenance.
