Solar Edge Grid Connect - Residential Solution 

Solar energy systems include PV panels and inverters. Traditional string inverters have a number of significant drawbacks. SolarEdge DC optimized inverters overcome these traditional concerns to offer more energy, better maintenance, and enhanced safety.

More Energy

Traditional Inverter SolarEdge Solution

  • MPPT per entire string - all modules receive the same current, regardless of their individual MPP
  • MPPT per module - current & voltage adjusted per module
  • Weak modules reduce the performance of all modules in the string or are bypassed
  • Maximum power from each module individually
  • Power losses due to module mismatch
  • 2%-25% more energy from the PV system

Constraint-Free Design

Power optimizers enable installation of:

  • Strings of uneven lengths

  • Modules in multiple orientations and different roof facets in a single string

  • Modules in shaded areas

More modules on the roof, More power, More revenue & More aesthetic rooftops

Cost-Saving Maintenance

Module-level performance monitoring & remote maintenance lead to:

  • Less trips to site

  • Less time spent on site

  • Higher system uptime

Free module-level monitoring for system lifetime

Real-time full insight to system from anywhere

  • Easy access via web browser and mobile device

Enhanced Safety – SafeDC™

With SolarEdge, whenever AC power is off, DC wires are de-energized

  • Power optimizers shut down the DC voltage in the PV wires to protect installers, maintenance personnel, and firefighters

  • The SolarEdge inverter solution meets the advanced European safety standards

SolarEdge inverters are certified to IEC 60947 as a disconnection means between a PV inverter and a PV generator, and to VDE 2100-712 for safety for firefighting or maintenance.


StorEdge™ Solution with Backup

SolarEdge’s StorEdge DC coupled storage solution automatically provides homeowners with backup power in case of grid interruption, and allows home owners to maximize self-consumption for maximum energy independence. Unused PV power is stored in a battery and used during a power outage or when PV production is insufficient. When there is a power outage, a combination of PV and battery is used to power important loads such as the refrigerator, TV, lights and AC outlets, day or night. The solution is based on a single inverter for PV, storage and backup power. 

 

StorEdge™ Power Backup Benefits
