Upgrade Your PV System With A SolarEdge Retrofit
Online Monitoring And Increase Your PV Production By Up To 25%
Why Retrofit Your PV System ?Since 2010 many solar pv systems have been poorly installed, bad workmanship and inferior quality components have led to many systems failing and performing poorly.
We are constantly receiving phone calls from solar owners who are concerned that their system have been under performing since they were installed.
In some cases their existing installer is no longer trading and they don't know which way to turn.
A typical problem we see regularly are older systems that have been installed with string inverters that lower the output of all the panels to match the level of the lowest performing panel.
Simple shading, damage or soiling to one of the panels can cause a domino effect to all the other panels.
SolarEdge TechnologyBy using SolarEdge power optimisers each panel works independently and if one panel looses performance, the whole system isn't affected.
Utilizing SolarEdge technology could boost your systems performance by up to 25%.
24/7 Online MonitoringSolarEdge Technology also provide 24 /7 monitoring so you can check your panels on a daily basis through your pc, tablet or phone.
