Intersolar Europe 2011, HOD HASHARON, ISRAEL & DURHAM, UK: SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of end-to-end solar power optimization systems, and Cleaner Air Solutions, one of the largest providers of solar PV systems in the UK, announced a new distribution partnership increasing SolarEdge’s activities in the UK. In the first quarter of 2011 Cleaner Air Solutions ordered 3MW of SolarEdge power optimizers and solar inverters. The run rate is expected to rise through the spring and summer.
SolarEdge installations harvest up to 25 percent more energy than traditional PV systems, tracking the MPP of each module individually. In addition, installers benefit from a new form of design freedom which enables the installation of PV systems on rooftops across multiple roof facets and with partial shading. PV owners such as property management companies and social housing organizations will benefit from increased energy output, and from employing more rooftops for PV.
The possibility of monitoring PV systems at module level and in real time is another significant novelty which helps save on maintenance and operation costs while giving added peace of mind to installers and end-users. The SolarEdge PV monitoring solution is complete with a built-in safety mechanism which automatically switches off DC voltage once the system is disconnected.
“SolarEdge offers a great opportunity to bring PV to everyone,” says Terry Skee, Commercial Director at Cleaner Air Solutions. “We expect higher return on investment with the added energy output provided by SolarEdge.”
“We are very impressed by Cleaner Air Solutions’ commitment to PV market growth in the UK. We recognize the high level of professionalism of Cleaner Air Solutions and its team and are looking forward to a successful partnership” says Zvi Lando, VP Global Sales at SolarEdge.
