Distributor of Renewable Energy Products, Australia ( Solar Thermal Magazine ) – Hod Hasharon, Israel, July, 2013. RFI Solar, a leading Australian distributor of renewable energy products, and SolarEdge Technologies, a leading global provider of solar power optimization systems announced today a distribution partnership which will expand the product offering of RFI Solar to address the increasing demand for SolarEdge power optimizers in Australia.
We see that the demand for module-level electronics is steadily increasing due to the opportunities they entail for solar installers in Australia.
The SolarEdge system consists of a specialized DC/AC inverter and power optimizers, which track MPP at the module-level, thereby increasing energy output by up to 25%. Given that the modules operate independently, shading, module orientation and uneven string lengths are no longer design limitations. This allows designers the flexibility to cover more of the roof with solar modules, including on facets with different orientations and tilts. Power optimizers also improve safety by automatically dropping the string voltage to a safe voltage level if the inverter is off.
This creates a safer environment during installation, troubleshooting and in the event of an emergency. Module-level monitoring allows installers to check how the modules are performing and optimize system maintenance. “SolarEdge has been active in Australia for almost three years with the result of thousands of installations and we expect our presence to increase even further through cooperation with RFI Solar”, says Zvi Lando, VP Sales at SolarEdge.
We are happy to continue enabling thousands of system owners to reduce the cost of renewable energy with safe and reliable residential and commercial products from SolarEdge.
