Not all roofs are created equal.
Roofs have multiple aspects, made from different materials, have different shading issues, so many things impact how much usable space is available for solar power. That’s why when your roof is a little more technical we choose to use a Solar Edge system. The easy answer is that Solar Edge is a brand of inverter, but like I said that’s the easy answer. Solar Edge is a whole system. It allows us greater options for your solar installation. We can easily install on multiple roof aspects, we can easily add panels as you grow, you can monitor every panel individually. You can easily integrate a battery or even an EV (electric vehicle) charge point.
SolarEdge invented the power optimizer which revolutionized the way power is harvested and managed in a solar system.
A SolarEdge systems consists of power optimizers, inverters and a monitoring platform.
Recently, SolarEdge has expanded its portfolio to include panels, batteries, e-mobility, critical power and automation machines. This makes SolarEdge one of the largest diversified solar technology companies in the world.
Panel level optimisation is essential because it maximises output from every optimised panel in the solar system.
Power optimizers mitigate against poor solar panel performance caused by thermal mismatch, soiling, manufacturing tolerance, different panel orientations and partial shading.
Furthermore, the power optimisers monitor the performance of each panel and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal for enhanced, panel-level performance monitoring
Each power optimiser is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down panels' DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down.
In summary, the power optimiser gives you the power to do more with your solar energy.
Single Phase Inverters
The Solar Edge single phase inverters with HD wave technology is a multi-award winning product.
It is the latest generation of single phase inverters achieving record breaking 99% efficiency. This means more energy production for greater energy savings.
It comes with a market leading warranty of 12 years which is also extendable to 25 years.
Three Phase Inverters
A battery ready hybrid that allows direct connection of multiple Solar Edge Batteries.
The new residential three phase inverter features new technology that allows the same superior design freedoms that is a hallmark of Solar Edge’s inverter technology.
SolarEdge offers free energy monitoring from its mySolarEdge app. Users can easily track solar production, consumption and self-consumption at any time.
The app provides enhanced performance monitoring down to the individual panel level.
With the mySolarEdge app, users can;
- Gain real-time visibility on energy use and production
- Track system performance and compare production over time
- Control home appliances remotely
- Set smart schedules to maximise energy savings
- Manage electric vehicle charging
The bottom line is that the mySolarEdge app allows users to measure and manage solar energy more effectively.
SolarEdge’s StorEdge storage solution enables homeowners to maximise self-consumption and increase energy independence.
In addition to optimising self-consumption, StorEdge can also provide backup power to pre-selected loads when the household suffers from grid interruptions.
The StorEdge inverter also allows for large numbers of solar panels to be connected not only to power the home’s appliances, but also to charge a home battery, even in wintry or cloudy conditions. This market leading feature provides useful flexibility when sizing a system to meet the household’s energy needs.
Designed to automatically use excess PV power in order to increase solar energy usage, SolarEdge’s smart energy products allow users to decrease their electricity bills, improve energy independence, and enjoy automatic on-the-go device control.
Full visibility and control of all products is available via the smart energy mobile application and the monitoring platform.
