The independent capability of these new power optimizers and their improved ease of installations is expected to significantly increase the total available market for power optimizers. SolarEdge will present the new product to the public for the first time during the world´s largest solar energy trade fair, Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany, in June.
“To date, we have brought to the market over one million power optimizers. With our new generation optimizer we’re taking the next step towards power optimization becoming mainstream with solar PV-arrays. We also succeeded in reducing the number of parts compared to previous models by 50 percent, which allowed us to design a much smaller product with increased durability and efficiency,” says Lior Handelsman, Vice President Product Strategy and Business Development. “It is now much easier to introduce smart modules with integrated SolarEdge technology into the market and even old PV-arrays may now be upgraded more easily with our power optimizers to counter the effects of uneven degradation and increasing mismatches.”
Highest known efficiency and easier installation
The new SolarEdge optimizer offers the highest known peak efficiency in the industry of 99.5% and 98.9% EU weighted efficiency. It creates higher yields in both shaded and unshaded scenarios and can adjust the current of each PV module individually eliminating any form of mismatch. It is also certified in the IP68 protection class, providing excellent protection against water and dust. The new power optimizers are also equipped with a new mounting bracket that allows for a considerably shorter installation time.
The new power optimizers will provide all of the known range of SolarEdge benefits. These include: ease of site design and installation, reduction of balance of system costs, increased safety and monitoring features.
SolarEdge at Intersolar Europe
SolarEdge will be presenting its products and services from June 13-15 at the trade fair Intersolar Europe in Hall C3 at Stand 110. On June 13th at 14:00, SolarEdge cordially invites all journalists to a press conference. A detailed invitation will follow shortly.
