PVinsights: Solar Takes Advantage Of Weakening Dollar

The overall price of solar module continues its downward trend with limited scope. As the market is still struggling with oversupply, limited trade volumes have been seen after the holiday season in Europe and America as companies are still planning the year ahead at the start of 2017, resulting in a minor price decline in EU and US. Meanwhile, the price in Japan, India, and China remained firm this week due to relatively decent demand in the region. Furthermore, after the sharp decline last quarter, the overall price adjustment has slowed down due to weak dollar and slowing price competition in the global market, but the pressure resulting from oversupply still exists. Thus, the overall solar module prices drop slightly this week.

PVinsights: Holiday Season Tempers the Momentum of Price Slump

Solar module prices continue to drop this week, but the scope is relatively limited in comparison to previous weeks. Although solar panel sectors continue to struggle with oversupply, the thinning trading in EU and US during holiday season, the stabilized solar panel prices in China, and the tempered pace of strong dollar have all resulted to a limited drop of module prices this week. Because the solar panel prices in EU and US had experienced sharp reduction, due to the fierce competition before the year-end of 2016, the descent of solar panel prices in these regions have seem to be relieved temporarily this week. Moreover, although solar panel prices in these regions remain depressed, a lull in trading from the holidays has led the prices to be less volatile. Meanwhile, solar panel prices in China remain firm this week thanks to the solid domestic demand.

Solar Trends to Watch for 2017

2016 marked a record year for solar energy. As of December 2016, solar power is cheaper than wind and cheaper than fossil fuels. What does that mean for the future of the solar industry, and more specific to our interest, what does that mean for solar generators? The bottom line: now is the time to invest in solar energy including solar generators.

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.
