There are many different reasons that Solar PV owners can benefit from upgrading to a SolarEdge system. The points below will help you get a better understanding of how it could help you…
If the Solar PV system is experiencing some type of failure or under performance, this could be an excellent opportunity for a system owner to consider to upgrade to a SolarEdge system. Shading on the panels, for example, could have a major impact on the performance of a string inverter.
By upgrading to a new inverter with increased efficiency such as the SolarEdge HD Wave inverter, you could potentially realise an increase in solar energy production, which in turn will increase the amount of Feed In Tariff (FIT) you receive.
The cloud based SolarEdge monitoring platform provides enhanced PV performance monitoring and yield assurance through immediate fault detection and alerts at module level, string level and system level. Naked Solar will be alerted to any faults on your PV system, probably before you even realise there is an issue.
SolarEdge inverters come with a 12 year warranty as standard as opposed to the 5 or 10 year warranty from most string inverters. The optimisers come with a 25 year warranty.
The SolarEdge system makes it straight forward to add battery storage to your PV array. 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.
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.
