With O&M costs accounting for close to a quarter of the lifetime running expenses of wind turbines, industry sentiment has shifted dramatically in recent times.
Significant investment in consumer education required
Solar panel prices plunge seriously this week, due to the price competition expanding globally. The fragile and uncertain installation backdrop and policy shocks are all contributing to a softer demand environment as well as the solar prices. In China, as Chinese module makers have already stung by China demand woes, face mounting pain as growing inventories leave many companies starve for cash. The record low bidding prices for power plants in China are the evidence that Chinese module makers are striving to secure the limited orders. Furthermore, in order to meet the shipment target in 3Q, Chinese module makers have expanded their battlefield from China to other major solar markets, especially in the US, Japan, India, and Euro. Since the 2nd tier Chinese module makers target at regions with no punitive tariff enforced, especially in India and Japan, solar panel prices remain pressured as they continue to dump excessive inventories out of China.

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.
