SolarEdge Inverter

SolarEdge Technologies stands as a global frontrunner in cutting-edge smart energy solutions. Established in 2006 by visionaries Guy Sella, Lior Handelsman, Yoav Galin, and Meir Adest, this dynamic company is headquartered in Herzliya, Israel, and boasts a strong presence across the United States, Europe, and Asia.

SolarEdge embarked on its journey with a primary focus on pioneering a revolutionary inverter technology to enhance the efficiency of solar power systems. In 2010, SolarEdge made its debut with the groundbreaking SolarEdge Power Optimiser, meticulously crafted to optimise the power generation of each solar panel within a system.

Fast-forward to 2012, and SolarEdge went public on the prestigious NASDAQ stock exchange, securing an impressive $126 million during its initial public offering. The company continued to expand its product range, introducing a spectrum of cutting-edge inverters, advanced monitoring systems, and ingenious energy storage solutions.

In 2015, SolarEdge made waves by acquiring Kokam, a prominent South Korean battery manufacturer, thereby bolstering its energy storage capabilities. The same year witnessed the launch of the ingenious StorEdge solution, enabling homeowners to store surplus solar energy for later use, even during sunless periods.

The year 2018 marked a significant milestone when SolarEdge added Gamatronic, an Israeli expert in uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, to its portfolio. This strategic acquisition broadened SolarEdge’s offerings to encompass resilient backup power solutions for both residences and businesses.

Presently, SolarEdge reigns as a leading purveyor of intelligent energy technology, boasting a diverse array of products and solutions for solar power systems, energy storage, and reliable backup power. The company’s relentless commitment to innovation has earned it a slew of prestigious awards and firmly established its position as one of the fastest-growing entities within the renewable energy sector.

Solaredge boasts an extensive global network of manufacturing facilities. The company’s primary production centre is situated in Israel, specifically in Beit Shemesh, approximately 30 kilometres west of Jerusalem.

This expansive facility covers an area of approximately 23,000 square meters and is responsible for the manufacturing of inverters, power optimisers, and other essential components for solar power systems. Apart from the main facility in Israel, Solaredge operates manufacturing plants in various other countries, including:

  • China
  • Vietnam
  • Hungary

These facilities are engaged in the production of a wide range of products, such as:

  1. Power optimisers
  2. Inverters

Solaredge’s manufacturing facilities are designed with a strong emphasis on automation, incorporating advanced robotics and cutting-edge technologies to streamline production processes and enhance overall efficiency. Moreover, the company is committed to environmentally friendly manufacturing, focusing on waste reduction and energy consumption minimisation.

In terms of production capacity, Solaredge’s manufacturing facilities can produce millions of units each year. The company’s production capacity has experienced substantial growth in recent years due to the rapidly increasing demand for its products.

In 2020, Solaredge reported shipping over 1.5 million inverters and more than 50 million power optimisers since its establishment in 2006. In addition to its manufacturing prowess, Solaredge has received numerous awards and recognitions over the years, highlighting its commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility.

The massive difference about the SolarEdge inverter, is that each panel comes with an optimiser, allowing each panel to work independently of each other. Therefore your system will not be affected as much by a little bit of shade or dirt. Information on these can be found here.

CON – Quite expensive

Our Thoughts

A quality product, manufactured by a massive company with a strong trading history. Comes with one of the industrys best standard warranty of 12 years, with the option to extend this online to up 25 years too. 

The Australian office allows for warranty issues to be catered for, even if your installation company disappears.

They will be a good choice by anyone, that will last the test of time and produce power for years to come. The BIG selling point is that all the panels come with a power optimiser, this allows each panel to work independantly of each other, which results in more energy generation for your system, as each panel is working to the best of their abilities. 

Safety of the inverter is brilliant, they have SafeDC and Rapid Shutdown technology incorporated within the inverter, which automatically reduces the DC cables to 1V (safe to touch) whenever the inverter is turned off.

We would install them on our own house or business.

HOWEVER, here is the kicker…..sometimes they promise more than they can deliver, for instance, they allowed retailers across the company to sell their single and three phase inverters as ‘hybrids’, meaning they can connect a battery to them in the future, promising that their new battery with be compatible with them. But guess what, the new battery isn’t compatible with their 3 phase inverter. Which means there are lots of customers out there that already have bought the 3 phase inverter and want a battery and they can’t have one yet! Keep being told it’s coming and in development, but really, we don’t think it is yet.

They are ‘sort of’ doing the right thing at the minute, and if you do buy a battery for a single phase, they are given you a new Home Hub inverter, and replacing the old HD Wave, thus you start your 12 year warranty again, so that’s a massive win for the customer, however, are they doing this because they have had quite a few service issues with the HD Wave too!

SolarEdge is great for the right circumstance, when you have lots of shading issues or multiply roof orientations and angles, so there is definitely a place in the market for them, and we would strongly recommend them in those situations. But if you have no shade issues, and can fit your panels nicely on 1 or 2 orientations, then I don’t think you need to go to a SolarEdge inverter which is more expensive.
