Many Solar PV owners may benefit by upgrading to a SolarEdge inverter system. The points below will help you get a better understanding of how it could help you…
If your solar panels are underperforming or faulty in some way, you should consider upgrading to a SolarEdge system. Shading on the panels, for example, can have a major impact on system performance, while a panel failure can be difficult to identify and harder to replace as panel technology moves on.
With SolarEdge, you can identify problems early and mix and match panels giving you freedom to replace easily. Most inverters won’t let you do this.
The cloud based SolarEdge platform provides real-time enhanced PV performance and yield monitoring through immediate fault detection identifying exactly where the problem is. Naked Solar will be alerted automatically to any faults on your PV system, probably before you realise there’s an issue.

If you get Feed in Tariff payments, upgrading to a new inverter with increased efficiency such as the SolarEdge HD Wave inverter, you could boost solar energy production, which in turn will increase the amount of Feed In Tariff (FIT) you receive.
Using reports from PV Sol software Naked Solar can show you a comparison between your existing set up and a SolarEdge upgrade, helping you make an informed choice.
PV systems are generally safe and advancements have made them even safer. With recent news about building fires that had PV systems installed, homeowners may be interested in enhancing their PV system’s safety. SolarEdge offers the most advanced safety features, such as arc detection and module-level shutdown.
Adding a battery to your solar energy set up is a pretty straightforward job with SolarEdge. With many inverters it can be a complicated upgrade. A battery such as the LG Chem can be easily added to your array meaning you can use more of the green energy you produce.
SolarEdge inverters come with a 12 year warranty as standard, while their optimisers come with a 25 year warranty. Most string inverters will only offer you a 5 – 10 year warranty. One of the many reasons why we highly recommend SolarEdge products.
Solar Edge is the market leader of optimised systems, apart from increased generation there are other advantages too:-
SolarEdge has the capability to identify faults and will then send an automated email to Naked Solar so we can quickly arrange rectification, less down time, more energy generation.
Many faults can be pinpointed by the SolarEdge system meaning investigation time is greatly reduced. Instead of a full scaffold and 2 man team for a day, thanks to SolarEdge’s capability to pinpoint a fault it’s usually 1 man with an access tower for 1 hour.
If you have a panel failure it can be difficult to source a suitable replacement as panel technology moves on. Not with SolarEdge, you can mix and match panels giving you freedom to choose.

The inverter has a 12 year warranty, 2 years longer than any other in the industry. The optimisers have a 25 year warranty and SolarEdge cover the costs of replacement too, so you can have piece of mind knowing that everything is covered.
SolarEdge has arc fault detection, another feature unique to SolarEdge. Firefighters can also spray water on a SolarEdge optimised system because when the system is shut down the DC voltage is safe due to the optimisers isolating each panel from the next.
