SolarEdge Technologies and Zep Solar have collaborated to offer the new Zep Compatible power optimizer, which the companies say can be easily integrated with the frame of any Zep Compatible solar module.
The SolarEdge Zep Compatible power optimizer can be installed without running grounding wire. Zep Compatible solar modules are available from module makers such as Trina Solar, Yingli Solar, Canadian Solar, Sharp Solar, Upsolar and ET Solar, among others.
SolarEdge power optimizers present a 99.5% peak efficiency and a 98.9% weighted efficiency, according to the company. The power optimizer maximizes energy production for each individual module, offering greater energy yields in both shaded and un-shaded scenarios and eliminating any form of module mismatch, SolarEdge adds.
Furthermore, module-level monitoring provides full visibility of system performance and remote troubleshooting. SolarEdge's Zep Compatible power optimizer can be connected to PV modules on the ground, allowing the mounting hardware, power optimizer and module to be installed on the roof at the same time. Wires are managed by snap-in wire clips offered by Zep Solar.
