Key Benefits of a SolarEdge Solar System
SolarEdge is a revolutionary solar system that uses the latest technology turn your solar panels into a Smart Solar System that will produce more solar power and give you more flexibility.
Tesla Powerwall Compatible!
SolarEdge is one of the only solar systems in Australia that is fully compatible with Tesla’s Powerwall home battery. You will now be able to manage your power consumption to further reduce your power bills and increase your energy independence.
SolarEdge’s StorEdge™ DC coupled storage solution allows home owners to maximise self-consumption and enables energy independence. Unused PV power is stored in a battery and used when needed to maximise self-consumption. The solution is based on a single inverter for both PV and storage. Existing SolarEdge systems can be upgraded to the StorEdge™ solution.

Each panel in a solar array has a maximum power point. With a standard string inverter the panels are hooked up in series, meaning the array only operates at the level of the worst performing panel. With a Solar Edge system, each panel produces the maximum output as it is independent from the other panels and hence power loses are eliminated. Examples of potential performance inhibitors include snow, leaves, dust, bird droppings and variances in manufacturing tolerance.
As each panel outputs power independently from the rest of the array, panels can be installed at various angles and orientations. With a standard inverter, we need a minimum of 7 panels in a string. Many roof sections are too small for 7 panels, but with a Solar Edge system this isn’t a problem. This flexibility allows our install department to design an array with more panels, which means greater output and further savings off your power bills.
Module Level System Monitoring
All Solar Edge systems are connected to the internet and come with free module level monitoring, giving system owners full visibility of performance from any computer or devise. You can monitor the performance of your system to maximise the benefit of your investment, plus you can get updates and alerts to minimise downtime. Monitoring is also available through a free application for iphones and android devises.
Solar power systems are safe and pose no danger to people or property when installed correctly. Solaray only use installers accredited by the Clean Energy Council and our install standards are the best in the industry. With a standard inverter, as long as the sun is up the system will be sending DC power to the inverter. With a Solar Edge system DC wires are designed to automatically de-energise providing protection to home owners and to service technicians during maintenance.
Increased energy yield compared to the traditional inverter system:
No power loss due to module mismatch due to power optimisation per module
Constraint free design allows for utilisation of more roof area
Easy and cost efficient maintenance for increased up-time of your PV system
During Installation: safe string voltage until inverter & AC supply are turned on
Maintenance: safe string voltage with an automatic DC shut-down once inverter is turned off
Emergency: safe string voltage with an automatic DC shut-down after grid disconnection or in reaction to high temperature
Peace of mind:
Ability to monitor the PV system any time, anywhere in order to guarantee optimal operation
Module level, real-time alerts of system issues pinpointed on a virtual map
