How Does Solar Energy Work?

Every hour, more energy is produced by the Sun than all of us in the world could use in a whole year — clean, limitless, free energy.
SolarEdge helps you harvest this energy to power your home.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, capture, and convert sunlight into clean DC (direct current) electricity. A solar inverter converts the DC electricity into grid compliant AC (alternating current) that powers your home.

Traditional PV Inverters

Traditional PV systems consist of PV modules wired together in a series, much like Christmas tree lights. If a single module underperforms for any reason (cloud-cover, dust or dirt for example), the rest of the modules on that string also underperform, reducing energy production across the whole string.


The SolarEdge PV Solution

In a SolarEdge installation, each PV module is connected to an intelligent electronic chip called a power optimizer. Power optimizers maximize solar energy production from each module separately and therefore reduce power losses. If an individual module underperforms, it won’t affect the performance of any of the other modules in the string. Every SolarEdge system further benefits from advanced monitoring that tracks and reports the performance of every module, and exceptional safety features. A suite of integrated smart energy solutions further maximize your energy production and energy savings.
