Solar Plants, one of Wales’ leading independent PV installers, completes a 250kW commercial installation with SolarEdge’s DC optimized inverter solution at Sony UK Technology Centre. Looking to promote the use of green energy, Sony UK Technology Centre was specifically interested in SolarEdge’s solution as it increases system production by maximising energy production at the module level.

The SafeDC™ technology, which provides module-level shutdown, was an additional benefit that was particularly important to the system owner who wanted to enhance protection for people and assets. With Sony UK Technology Centre’s systems spread across multiple rooftops, SolarEdge’s module-level monitoring and remote troubleshooting allow Solar Plants to efficiently conduct Operations & Maintenance services to provide higher system availability.

“SolarEdge’s inverter technology offers Sony UK Technology Centre increased energy yields for an improved return on investment and higher lifetime value,”stated James Edgeworth, Commercial Development Manager of Solar Plants.

“In addition, the module-level monitoring platform enables us to provide more effective asset management to optimise long-term performance.”

Besides installing a new PV system, Sony UK Technology Centre requested that Solar Plants retrofit a previously-installed PV system to include SolarEdge technology. The system was upgraded to leverage SolarEdge’s monitoring platform and to reduce energy losses from which the original system suffered.

“This installation excellently demonstrates the benefits that SolarEdge provides throughout the solar energy value chain in commercial PV systems, from the installer to the system owner,” stated Alfred Karlstetter, General Manager of SolarEdge Europe.

“SolarEdge’s inverter solution offers improved revenue with decreased Balance-Of-System costs and O&M costs for an increased lifetime value, which are key benefits when system owners and EPCs are increasingly identifying commercial PV installations as long-term investments.”

Wyn Landon of Sony UK Technology Centre adds:

“We are proud of our status as a manufacturing centre of excellence. With advanced manufacturing capabilities and state-of-the-art technology, SolarEdge technology will maximise our power production with green, clean energy that helps to reduce our carbon emissions.”
