Tokyo, Japan – SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (“SolarEdge”) (NASDAQ: SEDG), a global leader in PV inverters, power optimizers, and module-level monitoring services, announced that it is launching its commercial inverter solution in Japan.
The SolarEdge commercial solution consist of small and light-weight three-phase commercial inverters, sized 24.75kW and 33.3kW for both low and medium voltage connection, P600 and P700 power optimizers, and a cloud-based, module-level monitoring platform. By maximizing power harvesting from each module, enabling longer strings, enhanced safety, and lower O&M costs, the SolarEdge DC optimized inverter solution improves the lifetime value of commercial systems.
“As a top global inverter company, SolarEdge is now launching its commercial inverter solution in the Japanese market,” stated Guy Sella, CEO, Founder, and Chairman of SolarEdge. “Identifying Japan as an important PV market, SolarEdge invested in developing the right products to meet the needs and regulation requirements of the Japanese market.”
“SolarEdge began ten years ago by introducing innovative power optimizer. Today, we offer a full DC optimized inverter solution. Our global track record of 2.5GW of systems shipped, including ten million power optimizers, coupled with a local Japanese team and subsidiary, ideally positions us to launch our commercial solution in the Japanese market,” stated Nobu Fukatsu, SolarEdge’s General Manager of Japan.
SolarEdge inverters have a standard 12 year warranty, extendable to 25 years, 25 year warranty for power optimizers, and its module-level monitoring is free for system lifetime. As part of its commercial solution, SolarEdge offers a wide variety of optional pre and post sales services to support the installation and help ensure lifetime profitability of a SolarEdge commercial system. The SolarEdge commercial solution also includes optional control & communications gateway (CCG) and environmental sensors.
SolarEdge will be presenting its commercial inverter solution for the first time during PVExpo at its booth E52-10 in Hall 6 at PVExpo in Tokyo Big Sight on March 2-4.
SolarEdge provides an intelligent inverter solution that has changed the way power is harvested and managed in solar photovoltaic systems. The SolarEdge DC optimized inverter system maximizes power generation at the individual PV module-level while lowering the cost of energy produced by the solar PV system. The SolarEdge system consists of power optimizers, inverters, storage solutions, and a cloud-based monitoring platform and addresses a broad range of solar market segments, from residential solar installations to commercial and small utility-scale solar installations.
