Solar reverses amid strong dollar and demand concern

Due to the recent turmoil on foreign exchange market, strong dollar has dragged down overall solar panel prices to decline this week. In China, although the demand seems solid, the attempts to raise the price quotes only have limited success. Such demand improvement is not strong enough for PV developers to accept the price hike that have many solar module makers to suffer with eroded margins. Moreover, due to the RMB depreciation, the slight price improvement in RMB term has been hindered in USD terms. Meanwhile, the strengthened greenback has also suppressed solar panel prices in Japan as Yen weakens. Solar panel prices in EU have plateaued in euro, but reflect a price drop in USD term. On the other hand, the persistent pressure continues to build on the solar panel prices in the US, following the rising speculation of stagnate US demand and the uncertain atmosphere around the Presidential Election. Consequently, overall solar panel prices perform a drop this week.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
