Solar Edge Screenless HD Wave Technology
Marked as a milestone in inverter technology, the award winning HD-Wave Technology is a record-breaker in efficiency tests. Small, light, efficient and superbly reliable – SolarEdge’s single phase inverters with innovative HD-Wave technology are now a firm favourite for installers and end-customers alike. SolarEdge inverters will only work with power optimisers, which control module-level Maximum Power Point Tracking and voltage management. This means that the inverter is only responsible for DC to AC inversion – this is the secret of the HD-Wave technology. It uses smaller, lighter and more reliable thn film capacitors, allowing SolarEdge to rid most of the heavy metal parts from the inverter. (12 years warranty) (Extendable warranty available)
Solis inverter 4G
2.5-6kW Single phase series string inverter’s efficiency of has improved dramatically. Solis-1P(2.5-6)kW-4G series are suitable for the installation of single-phase input pv system of different types, residential, commercial and industrial and adopt ultra-high switching frequency, ultra-thin single four-layer board design can greatly reduce the risk caused by the connector. (5 years warranty) (Extended warranty available)
The SolarEdge power optimizer is a DC/DC converter which is connected by installers to each solar module, turning them into smart modules. The SolarEdge power optimizers increase energy output from PV systems by constantly tracking the maximum power point (MPPT) of each module individually. Furthermore, the power optimizers monitor the performance of each module and communicate performance data to the SolarEdge monitoring platform for enhanced, cost-effective module-level maintenance. Each power optimizer is equipped with the unique SafeDC™ feature, which us designed to automatically reduce moduales’ DC voltage to a safe level whenever the inverter or grid power is shut down (unless connected to a StorEdge inverter operating in backup mode).

These steel galvanised brackets are used to secure the mounting rails to the roof beams. These are suitable for pantile and concrete tiled roofs only, but a version for flat tile roofs is also available. To fit, a few tiles are removed from the outside of the roof and the hook secured to a rafter with the wood screws provided. Plywood padding can be used to ensure the correct spacing from the tile surface. The tile are simply replaced around the hook ensuring a weatherproof finish.
GivEnergy 3kW AC Coupled Inverter Charger
This AC coupled 3kW unit will charge from surplus PV generation, and also from the grid if you’re on an economy tariff. Wi-ﬁ comes as standard and gives access to the powerful monitoring platform, along with remote, site-speciﬁc ﬁrmware upgrades and troubleshooting via web browser or app. Full UK technical support is also on-hand, and every inverter purchase receives 30mins installation support as standard. The in-house control logic allows for simultaneous switching between charge and discharge to minimise imported energy, whilst export limitation is also available
Sofar ME3000SP Storage with Pylon Tech US2000
This AC coupled battery storage system from SoFar solar offers tremendous value – combining the SoFar ME 3000SP with lightly reliable 2.4kWh Pylontech lithium batteries. As this is an AC coupled kit it is suitable for any existing or new PV array, even those with dual tracker inverters, microinverters or power optimiser. Monitoring is built in as standard and can be viewed viar their android app. Charging from the grid is also possible meaning that customerson Economy 7 or similar can take advanatage of this and store electricity overnight for use in the morning, before the PV has fired up. (Sofar Storage 5 years warranty) (Extended Warranty available) (Pylon Tech Warranty: 10 yearrs warranty)
MyEnergi, Eddi Immersion Controller
Eddi is an energy management system for use with grid-tied PV or wind turbine systems. Excess energy from the microgenertation system is used to heat water or rooms rather than exporting it to the grid. Two heaters are supported (typically top and bottom immersion heaters). A grid current sensor (supplied) simply clips around the incoming supply cable. This sensor is used to monitor excess power and eddi automatically adjusts the voltage to the heater load, thereby consuming the surplus power.
