The SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis single phase inverter is the latest generation of the world’s best selling-series of inverters.
HD-Wave Genesis inverters are designed with a unique HD-Wave technology for the power conversion from DC electricity generated by the solar panels to AC electricity that is used in the power grid and powers the home. This technology reduces the heavy cooling elements and magnetics required in the solar inverter reducing the size and weight of the unit. It also results in more efficient power conversion at a record breaking 99%.
For the homeowner, this means increased power production and a better return on investment.
The launch of the new inverter is accompanied with a price reduction making smart solar technology even more accessible for Australian solar consumers.
If you are facing issues such as shading, space issues on the roof or a difficult roof shape, or just want to maximise system production and your savings, then SolarBright recommends the SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis inverters as the right choice.
What is SolarEdge Smart Solar?
Smart Solar from SolarEdge is a complete solar system solution where all the key components from SolarEdge are designed to work together. The key components are the inverter combined with small electronic devices called power optimisers, which are attached to each solar panel. The system is managed and monitored with a comprehensive system management platform through the mySolarEdge app or accessed through an internet browser on a PC.
All SolarEdge inverters need to be teamed with the optmisers. SolarEdge invented power optimisers and they revolutionise the way that power is harvested from solar systems. The traditional string inverters used in most solar systems in Australia, come with limitations and issues that SolarEdge inverters and power optimisers overcome.
With string inverters, the panels on the roof need to be set up in two strings. All the panels in a string need to be aligned in the same direction. One of the main limitations is that the string inverter sees and manages the panels in a string basically as a single panel, and all panels in the string will only produce at the same rate as the worst performing panel. If a 370W panel gets partially shaded and the output falls by 100W, all panels in the string will drop by 100W.
Shading is not the only issue. Poor panel performance can be caused by different factors.
With a SolarEdge inverter and optimisers each panel can produce at its maximum output independent from the performance of other panels. Over the life of the system this results in increased power yield of up to 20% and consequently increased savings and return on investment for the customer.
SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis Inverter Models
The single phase range of the HD-Wave Genesis inverters released in Australian consists of the following models from 3kW through to 10kW:
- 3kW SE3000H
- 5kW SE5000H
- 6kW SE6000H
- 8.25kW SE8250H
- 10kW SE10000H
For peace of mind the HD-Wave Genesis inverters are backed with a 12-year warranty from SolarEdge covering parts and labour. Many competing inverters offer a 10-year warranty but only the first 5 years are covered for parts and labour. Years 6 to 10 are only a materials warranty covering the parts, and it is up to the homeowner to pay for the technician to swap out the inverter.
There are upgrade options available to extend the SolarEdge inverter warranty to 20 or 25-years.
The power optimisers boast a 25-year warranty.
