1 Maximize Your Solar Savings
Like other electronics, PV technology has evolved over the last five years. There are large differences today in the capabilities of many of the system components. Inverters and panels on the roof, can have a huge impact on the amount of energy your system produces.
More power = more savings on your energy bill.
The inverter, which takes DC energy from the roof panels and converts it to AC, is the brain of the PV system. A smarter, optimized inverter can be the key to generating more energy than with other systems. How does this work? In traditional systems, installers connect solar panels in ‘strings.’ Just like with Christmas tree lights, where one failed bulb knocks out the other bulbs, one underperforming solar panel will lower the performance of an entire string. With an optimized inverter, power optimizers connect to the solar panels to enable them to perform independently. This results in more energy for your home.
Know before you buy
Ensure that the system you buy is optimized and has the ability to harvest maximum power from each panel. Ask your installer about options like cellular connectivity, consumption metering to track energy use, and battery integration to enhance your system. Plus, using a strong brand, like SolarEdge, could help future proof your investment. SolarEdge is an award-winning supplier to the global inverter industry. You might not have heard of SolarEdge, but the odds are, your installer has! As far as inverters go, you can’t go wrong by choosing one of the industry’s leaders.
