The Solar Inverters We Use in Our PV Installations

In the United States, most residential and commercial appliances rely on alternating current (AC) electricity. But the energy generated by solar photovoltaic (PV) panels comes out as direct current (DC) electricity.

This is why all of the PV installations we complete for our clients also come with a dedicated solar power inverter. The inverter is responsible for converting the DC power from your solar panels into AC electricity that your home or business can actually use.

However, not all solar power inverters are created equal.

In fact, wide variations exist from manufacturer to manufacturer (and technology to technology). As such, careful consideration is required before committing to any single solar inverter option.

Why We Choose SolarEdge for Our Inverters

At Capital Solar and Roofing, we’ve worked with a number of solar inverters when performing PV installations throughout Florida. And although each technology has its own pros and cons, we tend to gravitate towards SolarEdge.

Below are just some of the reasons why.


Solar Inverter Efficiency

Most solar inverters are about 95% efficient, meaning that 5% of the electricity from your panels never gets used. But SolarEdge’s efficiency approaches 99%, allowing you to generate the most clean energy possible.


Power Optimization

Solar inverters come in all different types, with 2 of the most popular being:

  • String inverters, which are ideal for rooftops that receive plenty of direct sunlight. All the energy from your panels are sent to a single inverter for the DC/AC conversion. This is usually the cheapest option.
  • Micro-inverters, which are best suited for rooftops with partial shading. The conversion process happens at the panel level, meaning shading on one module doesn’t impact the rest of the system.

But SolarEdge uses power optimizers that combines the best of both worlds:

  • There is panel-level monitoring, which means that partial shading doesn’t affect your system’s performance.
  • The conversion process is centralized, which makes the installation process both easier and cheaper.


Real-Time Monitoring

SolarEdge offers solar monitoring so you can track your PV installation’s performance in real-time. You can access these metrics online via any desktop or laptop. And there also downloadable apps for your smart phone or tablet.

This monitoring means that you don’t need to worry about the day-to-day output of your solar PV system. As long as there are no notifications or alerts, your panels are generating savings for you.

And for many Florida homeowners, that kind of peace of mind is invaluable.


Warranty Protection

SolarEdge’s standard warranty coverage is for 12 years. This is slightly higher than the industry average.

But you can also extend this coverage to 25 years, which is how long our solar panels are warrantied for.

Is SolarEdge The Right Solar Inverter for You?

The above benefits explain why SolarEdge currently:

  • Enjoys 20% market share for commercial solar installations in the US.
  • Features in more than 70% of all residential PV systems nationwide.

And because of its pricing, performance, and flexibility, SolarEdge is the solar inverter of choice for most of the PV installations we perform for our clients in Florida

At Capital Solar and Roofing, we’ve worked with any number of solar power inverters. But we tend to gravitate towards SolarEdge for several key reasons.
