solar edge power optimiser

Power Optimiser

PV Power optimisation at the module-level

Panel level optimisation is essential because it maximises output from every optimised panel in the solar system.

Power optimizers mitigate against poor solar panel performance caused by thermal mismatch, soiling, manufacturing tolerance, different panel orientations and partial shading.

Furthermore, the power optimisers monitor the performance of each panel and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring portal for enhanced, panel-level performance monitoring

Each power optimiser is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature which automatically shuts down panels' DC voltage whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down.

In summary, the power optimiser gives you the power to do more with your solar energy.

enphase inverter 300

Your inverter is the heart and brain of your solar system. It converts the direct current (DC) generated by your solar panels to alternating current (AC).

A microinverter, such as the Enphase Microinverter, is a small inverter designed to suit each individual solar panel on your roof. When the solar panels capture the sun’s rays, it’s your microinverter that converts those rays into electricity.

Want to make the most of your Blue Mountains sunshine?

There are a variety of microinverters on the market, however the Enphase Microinverter offers a number of unique advantages. We have clients all over the Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury who have chosen the Enphase technology for the benefits it offers over traditional inverters.

One of the most significant of these is that it provides your system with stability and reliability by enabling each of your panels to work independently. This means that if the performance of one panel is compromised, the rest of the system will still continue to work to capacity.

This is different to a traditional string inverter. As the name implies, a string inverter treats a group of panels as if it were one large panel strung together. The downside of a string inverter is that your solar system will always perform at the strength of the worst performing panel. This means that any problems with one or two of panels cause poor performance across the entire string.

And these problems don’t need to be complex – they’re often as simple as shade, bird droppings, dust, shadows from chimneys or other structures, and even power lines – and all in abundance in the Blue Mountains! But they can have a large impact. It’s not only the affected panel that suffers an output loss – it’s all of the panels in that string. The result? Your panels just aren’t working at capacity.

But with the Enphase Microinverter, the majority of your system will remain operational in the unlikely event that something does go wrong with one panel or microinverter.
  • Reduced maintenance and repair costs. The Enphase Microinverter is easier to fix than a string inverter. As it enables each panel to work independently, it’s simpler to identify any performance failure. This is unlike a traditional inverter, where problems can be more difficult to diagnose and repair.
  • Increased performance = lower electricity bills. While traditional inverters operate at the level of the lowest performing panel, the fact that Enphase Microinverters ensure each panel performs independently means that your energy production will be far higher, reducing your reliance on grid electricity. It’s said that, even with no shade, a microinverter will outperform a traditional inverter system by 20%.
  • Faster return on investment. Building on the increased performance outlined above, having your system always working at maximum efficiency means that you’ll enjoy more power and less bill shock.
  • Design flexibility Design of your panel array is key to the performance of your system. We take a number of factors into account, including:
    Building orientation and size
    Roof angles
    Surrounding structures
    How much electricity you use, and more.
    This lets us design a system that will give you the best return. With the flexibility offered by Enphase Microinverters, we can design a split panel system across multiple roof areas. They enable us to use different orientations and angles to distribute the power generated during the day rather than only during a peak period.
  • Remote support from E-Smart Solar As your installer, we provide ongoing fleet management. This means that we generate monthly performance reports on each microinverter’s activity, as well as update your firmware remotely.
  • Your own (powerful) monitoring system. It’s not a bolt-on and forget system – every Enphase Microinverter comes with MyEnlighten, simple software designed to help you engage with your system performance. It lets you track your daily energy usage (consumption and production), identify any potential trouble areas (a system status indicator lets you know of any issues and troubleshooting tips), and share your data.
  • Easily expandable. As your needs change, your system can, too. With Enphase Microinverters, you can install additional panels down the track without having to worry about:
    Matching the inverter size to the existing panel array
    Matching the panels to an existing string, or
    Replacing the inverter.
    This means that you can upgrade your system size and performance without being tied to old technology.
  • Additional safety features. Because they are attached to a single panel, your Enphase Microinverter operates at a relatively low point of power. This is unlike a string inverter that relies on a high-risk, high-voltage cable system.
  • Long-term reliability and 10-year warranty Enphase is the industry leader in inverter technology. And the Enphase Microinverters are the result of incredibly refined design and testing (over 1 million hours of reliability testing alone!), which is why they offer a 10-year warranty. You’ll enjoy peace of mind and industry leading reliability.
  • Environmentally-friendly The Clean Energy Council of Australia has listed Enphase Microinverters as approved renewable energy equipment, so you know you’re making an ecologically-positive decision.
  • Unobtrusive. Unlike string inverters that can take up a significant amount of storage space in your garage or home exterior, Enphase Microinverters are attached to the mounting kit underneath each panel, conveniently out of sight.

tesla powerwall 1 1 e1592814642144

Batteries for solar systems are one of the most talked about topics in the solar industry at the moment and this is largely due to one company – Tesla. E-Smart Solar offers the Tesla Powerwall battery storage solution for both new systems and as a retrofit to existing systems, combining our experience with solar with Tesla’s innovation in energy storage.

Tesla Energy – industry leaders

Around 1 in 7 Australian homes have a solar system installed. And despite a 7% fall in consumption, energy prices continue to rise (they’ve increased by a whopping 61% between 2008 and 2014). As a result, solar battery products (which enable you to store your home-grown energy and use it after the sun goes down) are in high demand. But none so much as the Tesla Powerwall.

Tesla Powerwall 2 – how it works

During the day, your solar panels use the sun’s rays to produce energy. This energy is then used to power your home or business. When the sun goes down, however, your system relies on the electrical grid. But not with the Tesla Powerwall.

The Tesla Powerwall enables you to store surplus your energy during the day (ie energy that your solar panels have created but not used) for use at a later time.
