Smart Panels, Power Optimisers & Inverters

About SolarEdge

Sometimes a traditional ‘string’ inverter isn’t the best solution. For example, if there is shading or panels need to be installed on more than 2 different directions/angles. In such cases, a SolarEdge inverter with Power Optimisers is the answer. Since 2009, SolarEdge has taken Australia by storm with revolutionary technology that allows each solar panel to maximise its performance, significantly increasing output in all weather conditions. Known for their long warranties, safety features and monitoring advantages, SolarEdge is a trusted brand that we recommend for our customers with more complex installations. In fact, SolarEdge is the second most common solar inverter installed globally, having shipped over 15 million Power Optimisers and having the most systems installed in the USA (considered to be one of the leading solar markets globally).

Power Optimiser Information

Like micro-inverters, Power Optimiser’s are attached to each solar panel to increase output and allow you to individually monitor each panel. Power optimisers are an excellent solution for more complex installations where there may be partial shading, tilted panels at various angles and/or panels facing multiple directions.

  • Warranty25-year product warranty
  • Efficiency – Higher efficiency than micro inverters (98.8% weighted efficiency vs Enphase IQ7A 97% weighted efficiency)
  • Cost – Usually more affordable than a micro-inverter system
  • Monitoring – Remote monitoring software allows the output of every inverter to be separately monitored
  • Safety – Automatic panel DC voltage shut-down
  • Increased Output – Minimise loss due to mismatching panels
