Fremont, California – May 22, 2013 – SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of end-to-end solar power optimization systems and monitoring solutions, today unveiled a new line of products for commercial applications in the North America market. The new offering includes: a line of 3-phase solar inverters from 9kW to 20kW in size; a 600W capable power optimizer enabling a two-to-one connection for 60 cell modules; and a new gateway for site communication and PV monitoring.

Implementing the new line of commercial inverters will enable greatly simplified photovoltaic (PV) system design and lower installation costs. The new line of 3-phase inverters lets designers install significantly longer module strings than with traditional inverters lowering electrical labor and component count by half. These inverters reach a high weighted CEC efficiency of up to 98% due to a fixed string voltage design that ensures optimal dc/ac conversion.

Supporting two 60-cell crystalline solar modules, the new 600W power optimizer builds on SolarEdge's high-efficiency electronics offerings, reaching a maximum efficiency of 99.5 percent. By taking the maximum power point (MPP) trackers out of the inverters and putting them into the power optimizers, SolarEdge can optimize the PV system by increasing energy harvest, offering module level monitoring and enhancing system safety.

"Lower LCOE [levelized cost of energy] with a differentiated and optimized solution is the key to winning in the commercial market," said Peter Mathews, Vice President of Sales for SolarEdge North America. "Improved energy harvest, superior operation and maintenance capabilities, and a simplified system design have already led to the successful installation of 150MW of 3 phase systems in Europe and we expect to encounter similar high demand in North America".

About SolarEdge Technologies

SolarEdge Technologies provides end-to-end distributed solar power optimization and PV monitoring solutions, allowing maximum energy production for faster return on investment. The SolarEdge power optimizers perform MPPT per individual module while monitoring the performance of each module. Moreover, a fixed DC string voltage is maintained, allowing optimal efficiency of the SolarEdge PV inverter, which is tailor-made to work with power optimizers. As a result, the SolarEdge system provides optimal power, flexible design and full roof utilization. Module-level and whole-system visibility enhance PV monitoring and maintenance capabilities, and the unique SafeDC™ mechanism shuts down module voltage during installation, maintenance and firefighting for greater safety.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
