Which to avoid?

Older SolarEdge inverters with displays are slowly on the way out. A key feature for some, most solar inverter manufacturers now consider an LCD interface a non-essential element. With the rise in popularity of cloud monitoring options, many local displays are now considered surplus and a potential point of failure.

WARNING: Installations lacking that of a stable internet connection should consult a SolarEdge design professional such as Perth Solar Warehouse Technical Support before purchasing.

Which to consider?

A diverse range of inverter options ensure SolarEdge inverters are compatible with most power supplies. The big question though in the modern-day mainly surrounds battery compatibility.

The great news is that SolarEdge HD-Wave range inverters can facilitate DC Coupled batteries. By merely installing the SolarEdge StorEdge battery interface (a small box adjacent to the inverter) the LG Chem RESUHV solar battery can then be connected to the SolarEdge inverter. The battery purposes is in this instance is intended as a peak load shaving device as opposed to an emergency power supply in the event of a grid failure.

Those requiring an Emergency Power Supply (EPS) function from the battery must select the dedicated SolarEdge StorEdge inverter range.

Note: Commanding a backup power supply limits the battery to be a useful energy-saving device. A level of reserve energy must be programmed to ensure the battery has available power in the event of a power failure.

What is the warranty?

Due to the stripped-down technology nature, SolarEdge inverters are equipped with the industries highest product warranty for the inverter alone. Not to be forgotten, as SolarEdge optimisers are an integral component within the SolarEdge system, the SolarEdge warranty is split in a few layers with a resounding 25-year product warranty on the optimiser technology.

Where are they made?

Headquartered in Herzliya, Israel, SolarEdge inverters are historically manufactured via outsourcing agreements spanning three continents with key manufacturing partners for more significant regional support. Romania and Hungry to service Europe. China, catering to the Asia and Australia/Pacific region. Finally Ontario, Canada for the American markets.

As of 2019 though, SolarEdge will commence production of SolarEdge inverters from a newly established 10,000 square meter manufacturing facility within the headquartered region of Israel.

What do they cost?

SolarEdge inverters are predominantly incorporated as part of a new system. Those shopping for a replacement inverter option wouldn’t consider SolarEdge due to the mandatory SolarEdge optimiser requirement. Unless of coarse if the inverter being replaced is a SolarEdge inverter.

Therefore, what should one expect to pay? Well, Solaredge is a bit like a GoPro. You’ll need to keep adding attachments to it to reach pro level. That being said, basic SolarEdge functionality still has its place for many.

Which is ideal for you?

Single-phase power supplies, fortunately, have the luxury of choice in this instance. Reduced capital investment in the ultra-efficient SolarEdge HD Wave or the backup power supply capabilities of the SolarEdge StorEdge (not essential for battery integration).

Three-phase power supply installations, well the choice is easy, the SolarEdge Three-phase inverter. Also compatible with batteries via the additional SolarEdge StorEdge interface. Unfortunately no emergency power supply function. It’s all about maximum energy saving, though, right?
