Sieger des SolarEdge Intersolar-Gewinnspiels bei WM Finale in Brasilien
1. Was haben Sie gerade gemacht als Sie von Ihrem Gewinn erfahren haben? Wie haben Sie davon erfahren? Natürlich war ich überrascht und habe mich gefreut, dass ich gewonnen habe. Nachdem ich auch nicht gezielt am Gewinnspiel teilgenommen hatte. Wir waren sehr früh auf dem SolarEdge Intersolar Stand, da wir für einen Kunden wegen eines SolarEdge Wechselrichters etwas zu klären hatten. Ein SolarEdge Mitarbeiter hat uns dann noch gefragt, ob wir an dem Gewinnspiel teilnehmen möchten. Was daraus wurde ist ja bekannt. Den Anruf bekam ich am Freitagabend, nachdem ich den ersten Anruf nicht entgegennehmen konnte, weil ich noch bei einem Kunden war. Danach bekam ich d Read More »

Optimize Your Business With One More Module
In the past year, US residential PV system sizes have grown by an average of 20 percent from a 5kW system to a 6kW system. Meanwhile, PV system prices have dropped by about 10 cents/watt per quarter. What is the best way for a solar company to weather these transitions? Our analysis into this question has yielded some amazing results and an opportunity for solar companies to boost profits by as much as 30 percent! Read More »

Solar Gangnam Style
One thing I can say about the music for this year’s video, the decision to go with Gangnam Style was easy and almost unanimous. So we had a song and we had a concept – we wanted to do the solar dance, something fun and happy that everyone can relate to. We also knew we want it to include SolarEdge employees only. No professional actors, singers, dancers. But then we thought – seriously? We don’t have employees that are actors, singers, dancers. Will our engineers, salesmen and operation staff be willing to participate? Will they manage to do it nicely? Read More »

Harvesting Sunshine From the Barn - a Case Study from Ontario, Canada

Harvesting Sunshine From the Barn - a Case Study from	Ontario, Canada
"A major advantage of the SolarEdge system is this: with snow accumulation on the panels, conventional string inverter production will be significantly compromised; with the SolarEdge system, those panels not affected by snow coverage can continue at full production. This has much the same advantage as we see with microinverter systems but at a lower cost as we deploy larger systems and realize a higher energy yield. I'm looking at deploying many more systems using SolarEdge technologies for years to come." George denHaan, Professional Engineer and owner of Sashaan Solar, Toronto ~ www.sashaan.com Read More »

What are your plans for the holidays?
I have been working at SolarEdge for a few months now as an electrical engineer. I noticed that at SolarEdge tight schedules and piles of responsibilities didn’t seem to come at the expense of a fun working environment, clearly generated by its employees. I understood that this environment was the real engine driving the company forward. It might be inappropriate for an engineer like myself to say, but it is the most powerful engine I know.

The Solartaxi Pulls into SolarEdge
The team at SolarEdge got a solar treat yesterday when Mr. Louis Palmer and his Solartaxi decided to pay us a visit at our Israel based office. Employees got very excited as Mr. Palmer and his solar cell powered car pulled into the entrance of the Hod Hasharon high-tech zone. The lunchtime visit gave the team a chance to take a closer look at the eco-friendly vehicle and a few lucky ones even got to take the car for a test drive. Read More »

I Beg to Differ
In 1880 Margarete Steiff founded the famous German plush toy company Steiff, which was, and still is, distinguished by its high quality products and high prices. In 1902 Steiff invented the teddy bear of which it manufactured 974,000 copies right away. Today, a century later, most of the worldwide plush toy demand is met by Asian companies and sold at more affordable prices. The process which Steiff and the like experienced over the course of a century was experienced by photovoltaic module manufacturing companies within a decade Read More »

An Inconvenient Truth?

An Inconvenient Truth?
An issue sparking much debate in recent years is that of climate change. On the one hand we have Al Gore and the majority of scientists saying we must do something before it’s too late, on the other hand we have the skeptics who say there is no climate change, and in between we have people saying climate change is real but not man-made, or people who are altogether indifferent.

Tools of Convenience Take on Time
With 14.6 GW of solar installations worldwide just this year, solar power has never been more popular. As new countries pass legislation to open up more markets to PV installations, the life of an installer becomes busier and busier. To combat the hectic schedules, SolarEdge developed 3 tools for its installers: the Site Design, Mapping and Configuration Tools. Read More »

SolarEdge Makes Impossible Installations Possible
Mr. Eitan Reem who lives in the peaceful Kfar Vradim village in northern Israel, wanted to join the constantly increasing community of home owners and farmers who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on their roofs. He approached Solgal Energy, one of the leading PV installers in Israel who reviewed the house’s position and design and recommended the installation of a 4kW system on the southern façade of the roof. The Israeli FiT allows installation of systems up to 15kW on residential roofs, which prompted Dov Kotlar, Solgal’s CEO, to examine the possibility of utilizing the entire roof area to install a maximum capacity system.

PV & Safety Under (or Above) the Same Roof
So by now almost everybody knows why solar energy is good (e.g. these 10 good reasons), but not many consider the potential risks related to traditional PV installations. It is important to remember that DC voltage is generated by PV panels as long as the sun is up, even when grid power is down. Read More »
