Suntech Panels

Suntech develops, manufactures, and delivers the world’s most reliable and cost-effective solar energy solutions and are one of the leading brands globally in the solar panel manufacturing industry. Offering the full spectrum of sizes, Suntech panels are one of the most efficient panels on the market, backed by an ISO9001 certified manufacturing facility, Suntech products are leading the way to power our future.
Suntech is one of the world’s largest crystalline module manufacturer with a deep commitment to R&D. SUNTECH only manufactures solar modules and have achieved world records for cell and module efficiencies.

Suntech has also achieved VDE Module Certification. Suntech is one of only 2 module manufacturers sold in Australia to achieve VDE Module certification, providing assurance of increased reliability and durability of modules. VDE Quality Tested products involve rigorous testing and surveillance of existing standards is provided by this certification program, which has been developed to provide assurance of increased reliability and durability of modules. Along with quarterly laboratory testing of a sample of production modules, it also requires production line sample testing on a daily basis, with some tests required for 100% of production.Some of the testing involves additional test cycles and higher sampling rates than required by the international standards. The associated VDE Quality Tested certificate ensures that all production modules meet the very high standards set

Suntech Power has also recently extended the product warranty period for its photovoltaic modules as it exhibited confidence in product quality and strengthened after-sale service. All modules made by Suntech are now under a 12-year product warranty, extending from the previous 10-year period. Customers of Suntech, benefiting from the extended warranty period, are exempt from paying warranty fees for the extra 2 years. Suntech are one of the few manufacturers around the world who offer this. Suntech offer a 25 year Industry leading linear warranty and 12 year product warranty.

Suntech is a Tier one producer using the highest grade of silicon to produce solar cells.

Enphase Micro Inverters

Enphase was the world’s first microinverter manufacturer. Micro inverters are ideal on installations where partial shading may be a problem and the individual solar panel power production can be monitored in detail.

More info: http://enphase.com/smartersolar/

Enphase offers the complete home and business energy management system. Micro Inverters get the most power out of every panel and offer customers real time monitoring and storage options. The Enphase storage options also gives users the benefit to adding onto storage in the future. The Enphase AC Battery is an integrated energy storage system that delivers high performance, superior reliability, modular architecture, and safety. This hybrid storage option is also compatible to a lot of existing inverters on the market if you have an existing system and would like to add on storage.

SMA String Inverters & Sunny Boy Storage

Harness the energy of the sun – with a solar inverter from SMA. They convert the direct current generated by the solar module into grid-acceptable alternating current. Thus they form the heart of every solar energy system.

As market leader for solar inverters SMA is setting benchmarks again and again: leading-edge efficiencies of 98% and new technology ensures maximum yields and the highest user convenience.

We offer you the right device for each application: for all module types, for grid-connection and feeding into stand-alone grids, for small house systems and commercial systems in the Megawatt range

The SMA inverters characterize the Technology- and Quality-Leadership of the inverter market. They impress with first class efficiency, user-friendliness and reliability.

SMA has Sunny Portal monitoring system to give users an overview of all plant values, exchange information with other owner-operators, compare performance: The integrated communications technology Webconnect links you directly to the Sunny Portal platform.

Sunny Boy Storage is SMA’s newest grid connected storage solution, the Sunny Boy Storage, as an AC-coupled storage solution, it can be added to any new or existing solar system. For existing systems, not only is the solution compatible for SMA and non-SMA solar inverters. Designed for integrating a lot of available batteries it is the most cost-effective way to add storage to a PV system.

Solar Edge

The Solar Edge is a system which is a proven leader in PV power optimisation. The optimisers are connected to panels individually allowing them to become a smart panel harvesting up to 25% more energy from each panel, constant feedback performance from the real-time monitoring portal and automatic shutdown of each panel for maximum safety in case of emergency. The system allows for design flexibility for panels at different azimuths and tilts and optimise performance with partially shaded areas, Cost saving maintenance and storage options for the future.

Get Maximum Power From Each Panel

In a PV system, each panel has an individual maximum power point. Differences between panels

introduce power losses. For example:

  • Soiling
  • Manufacturing tolerance
  • Potential future shading
  • Temperature difference
  • Bird droppings
  • Leaves

With traditional inverters, the weakest panel reduces the performance of all panels.

With SolarEdge, each panel produces the maximum energy, and power losses are eliminated.

With SolarEdge:

  • All roofs are possible
  • Aesthetic integration of the PV panels
  • More panels on each roof

More panels on each roof > higher system capacity > more income

View your system’s performance from anywhere

  • Full visibility of system performance
  • Monitor the performance of each panel in your system to secure your long-term investment
  • Get updates anytime, anywhere using free iOS and Android applications

Superior safety solution

  • PV systems are safe and pose no danger to people or property
  • However, with a traditional inverter, as long as the sun is up, PV wires are energised with high DC voltages
  • With SolarEdge, whenever AC power is off, DC wires are designed to automatically de-energise providing automatic protection to installers, maintenance personnel, firefighters and property
solar-edge-safety

Add storage to your PV system

  • The SolarEdge inverter can manage and monitor both PV generation and energy storage (StorEdge™)
  • The StorEdge™ solution maximises selfconsumption by storing unused PV power in a battery to use when needed
  • Includes optional backup feature to automatically supply power during electrical outages Compatible third-party batteries including the Tesla Powerwall Home Battery and LG Chem RESU, can be added to the existing SolarEdge system

Making PV panels smarter – the Solaredge solution

As a PV inverter and power optimisation leader, SolarEdge has shipped more than 2.9GW of its DC optimised inverter solutions to 91 countries.

The SolarEdge solution allows panel-level optimisation of your PV system for better system performance and for your peace of mind.

Power optimiser

By connecting a SolarEdge power optimiser to a PV panel it becomes a smart panel. This allows:

  • Harvest of up to 25% more energy from each panel
  • Constant feedback on the performance of each panel
  • Designed to automatically shutdown each panel for maximum safety in case of an emergency

Inverter

A simpler and more reliable inverter:

  • Responsible only for DC to AC conversion, as all other functions are handled separately for each panel by the power optimisers
  • Small and aesthetic
  • Available with 3G SIM card pre-installed. Out-of-the box internet-ready!
