At Solarbarn we install SolarEdge inverters as standard.
The key reasons are as follows:
- With a SolarEdge system the solar panels work independently of each other, If one panel is shaded it won't impact the ouput from the remaining unshaded panels, which is a problem with traditionally constructed systems. This results in higher yield.
- SAFE DC. When a SolarEdge system is switched off the DC voltage in the cables drops to safe levels (1 volt per panel). In traditional systems there will be 200-300v DC in the cables even when the system is switched off.
- Monitoring. SolarEdge systems are internet connected, providing real-time information on system performance.
-Warranty. Standard 12 year warranty on inverters, extendable to 20 years,
