Not Sure if You Need a Solar Upgrade?
What We Recommend
It is not always essential to invest in a solar upgrade for your existing solar array system, but during the times you experience a suspected performance loss or your inverter is out of warranty and or broken, you may want to consider upgrading your inverter to SolarEdge. It’s the brains of the system, the most critical component and therefore to upgrade from a traditional to a smart inverter like SolarEdge, would certainly make sense.
How SolarEdge will benefit you?
SolarEdge use several pieces of equipment called power optimisers and they are attached to the bottom of each panel which then allows each panel to perform independently, unlocking the following benefits:
- Increased panel generation
- Individual panel monitoring
- Enhanced safety
- Increased warranty
Frequently Asked Questions
Will changing my inverter effect my feed-in tariff payments?
Changing your inverter will not impact your right to a feed-in tariff or the rate you paid. You must not however change the panels or their orientation without express permission of your feed-in tariff provider.
Do you need to remove my panels to upgrade my solar system to SolarEdge?
We will need to lift some of the panels to gain access underneath them and we will always make sure they are fitted back on to the roof correctly. We will also carry out a visual inspection of the mounting equipment to check for any signs of damage or deterioration.
Is there a cost to the SolarEdge monitoring?
SolarEdge provide access to their monitoring portal for free and at SolarCentric we offer a service where we monitor this system on your behalf. If you would like to know more about prices, please ask our friendly team for more information.
How do I know if my system is underperforming?
Will upgrading invalidate my current workmanship warranty?
In some cases, upgrading to SolarEdge will invalidate the workmanship warranty provided by your original installer. We will offer a workmanship warranty on the work we have carried out as well as a visual health check to give you peace of mind. Product warranties should remain unaffected, but we would advise you to check with the product manufacturers in question.
