Solar Edge is a leader manufacturer of power inverters for residential PV systems and distributed power applications.
SolarEdge is a global company and a leader in PV inverters, power optimizers, and module-level monitoring services. With their invention of an intelligent inverter solution, it has transformed the way power is harvested and managed in solar photovoltaic systems. They have addressed a broad range of solar market segments, from residential to commercial and small utility-scale solar installations.
SolarEdge continues to improve grid-tie solar power generation. In each system, a DC to DC Power optimizer is paired with each solar panel that allows each one to operate on its own and at its highest efficiency. The SolarEdge system has a lot of benefits when designing your own system. For instance, there is no need for string sizing, different string lengths can be accommodated, panels don’t have to be facing the same way and it can provide up to 25% more energy production in systems with shading issues.
SolarEdge inverters are designed to work with their optimizers. Their power optimizers handle the MPPT and voltage separately for each module which makes their inverters only responsible for DC to AC inversion. Because of this, it allows them to be less complicated, more reliable and cost effective with a standard 12-year warranty that can be extended to 20 or 25 years.
