Solar energy systems include PV panels and inverters. Traditional string inverters have a number of significant drawbacks. SolarEdge DC optimized inverters overcome these traditional concerns to offer more energy, better maintenance, and enhanced safety.

More Energy

Traditional Inverter

  • MPPT per entire string - all modules receive the same current, regardless of their individual MPP
  • Weak modules reduce the performance of all modules in the string or are bypassed
  • Power losses due to module mismatch

SolarEdge Solution

  • MPPT per module - current & voltage adjusted per module
  • Maximum power from each module individually
  • More energy from the sun


Constraint-Free Design

Power optimizers enable installation of:

  • Modules in shaded areas

  • Strings of uneven lengths

  • Modules in multiple orientations

  • Different roof facets in a single string

More modules on the roof

More power, More revenue & More aesthetic


Cost-Saving Maintenance

Module-level performance monitoring & remote maintenance lead to:

  • Know before you go

  • Diagnose complex issues from your computer

  • Higher system uptime

Free module-level monitoring for 25 years

  • Easy access via web browser and mobile device

SafeDCTM  Enhanced Safety

  • With SolarEdge, whenever AC power is off, DC wires are automatically de-energized

  • Power optimizers are designed to automatically shut down the DC voltage in the PV wires to protect installers, maintenance personnel, and firefighters

  • The SolarEdge inverter solution meets the advanced safety standards

  • Integrated Arc Fault protection and Rapid Shutdown for NEC 2014 and 2017, per article 690.11 and 690.12

NEC 2014 Rapid Shutdown Functionality 

Installation safety – white paper


System Lifetime Warranty

Backed by the best-in-class warranties:


  • 25 years standard for optimizers
  • 12 years standard extendable to 25 years for inverters
