SolarEdge Inverter Guide

Optimise your solar energy system with the popular SolarEdge inverters

A solar inverter is a key aspect to any solar energy system. Responsible for transforming solar energy into usable electricity which can power your home, the SolarEdge inverters offer more than the standard inverter. A SolarEdge inverter helps to successfully manage energy production so you’ll be able to keep using clean energy even when it’s shady or overcast. 

SolarEdge has a range of different inverters with varying capacity. The single phase inverters have capacity from 2.5kW to 10kW, and the 3-phase range offers capacity from 5kW to 8kW. SolarEdge also offers larger scale inverters for commercial clients with energy capacity of 15kW to 100kW.

As a higher end product, the SolarEdge inverters tend to be more expensive compared to other brands. The average cost of a 5kW inverter and installation costing around $1,200, but for an exact quote get in touch with your local Jim’s Energy franchise. However, the SolarEdge inverters are considered to be a longer lasting and higher quality investment.

Highly Efficient

The standard efficiency for a residential solar inverter tends to be around 95 to 98%. The SolarEdge inverter (with the power optimisers) has an impressive efficiency of 99.5%. 

Generous Warranty

The SolarEdge inverters come with a 12-year warranty which then can be extended to 20 or even 25 years.

Innovative Technology

The SolarEdge inverter range is designed to work alongside their DC power optimisers, which work to maximise power generation. 

About SolarEdge Inverters

Unlike other inverter manufacturers, SolarEdge doesn’t make string inverters but instead uses the ‘intelligent inverter systems’. This unique approach utilises power optimisers to boost power generation and enables the inverters to perform so efficiently. The optimisers are connected directly to the solar panels and can either boost or reduce the panel voltage to deliver the right inverter power. The optimisers also had the advantage of being able to work around issues such as shading or panel manufacturing.

There are three types of inverters offered by SolarEdge; the StorEdge, the Genesis, and the Energy Hub inverters. The StorEdge inverters are ideal for grid-connected solar energy systems which have limited back-up. The Genesis inverters are best suited for energy systems which are grid-connected and are considered the most cost-effective inverter, however it only has limited back-up capability. The Energy Hub inverters are considered a more advanced inverter which can provide back-up capability. 

The inverters are easily scalable to your system requirements. If your energy requirements change, the SolarEdge inverters have the advantage over the traditional inverters as you expand your energy system easier without the need of an additional inverter.

About SolarEdge

SolarEdge is a global leader in smart energy solutions. The company offers an intelligent inverter solution that has changed the way power is harvested and managed in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. The SolarEdge DC optimised inverter system maximises power generation at the individual PV module-level while lowering the cost of energy produced by the PV system. 

The company was first founded in 2006 with the goal was to address the problem of energy loss in conventional solar systems, which they saw as a major barrier to the widespread adoption of solar power. SolarEdge’s breakthrough technology enables solar panels to operate at their maximum power potential, thereby reducing energy losses and increasing system efficiency.

SolarEdge is headquartered in Israel and has over 1,500 employees worldwide. The company has sales offices in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia, and South Africa, and a network of over 1,000 authorised distributors and installers.
