GTM Research recently ranked SolarEdge as a top global monitoring provider with more than 466,000 monitored PV systems around the world. In order to celebrate this new milestone, the company is offering a $10,000 prize to the installer that connects the 500,000th PV site to our monitoring platform.
Less than a decade ago, monitoring PV systems was a passive and reactive process. With the rapid adoption of MLPE, module-level monitoring and remote troubleshooting have become the standard for PV systems. SolarEdge’s monitoring platform offers improved PV asset management and decreased O&M costs by reducing the number of trips to sites and amount of time spent on site, while also increasing system uptime.
About SolarEdge monitoring
The free monitoring for system lifetime, with real-time insight into system performance from anywhere, provides value to installers and system owners alike. Acting as a strategic PV asset management tool, the platform offers comprehensive analytics tracking and reporting of energy yield, system uptime, and financial performance. For immediate fault detection, accurate maintenance, and rapid response, the platform features pinpointed and automatic alerts. The module-level power curves and voltages displayed in the monitoring platform enable remote troubleshooting. Its dashboard displays energy production on a weekly, monthly and yearly resolution.
Comparative energy charts available on the dashboard compare present and past performance on a monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis. To compare actual monthly yields with estimated figures, PV simulation results can be uploaded. For commercial PV systems, a commissioning report is offered with a comprehensive checklist of key aspects of the SolarEdge installation. For reporting purposes, there are various options including performance measures, comparative data to previous periods, and the report format.
