Grass Valley, California, July 11th, 2011 - SolarEdge Technologies Inc., a leading provider of end-to-end solar power optimization and monitoring solutions, announced today that its solar PV inverters qualify for US local, state and federal projects, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), and administered by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), of the US Department of Energy.
The SolarEdge leading technology complies with a waiver of the Recovery Act Buy American provision and is therefore eligible for nationwide US projects and programs. The waiver approves use of inverters that permit optimal output of four or more types of modules per array connected to one inverter, as presently no product manufactured in the United States has been found by EERE applicable to satisfy the needs of ARRA funding grantees utilizing arrays of diverse types and sizes of modules. The complete text of the waiver is available on this link.
“We are pleased by the acknowledgement of our offering, and are thrilled to make SolarEdge’s innovative solutions available for use by local, state and federal entities. Governmental projects can now benefit both from ARRA funding and from among the world’s most advanced photovoltaic technology,” said John Berdner, SolarEdge’s General Manager for North America.
The SolarEdge inverters are part of the company’s advanced solution that also includes module-level power optimizers and monitoring software. SolarEdge maximizes the return on investment across the solar photovoltaic system’s lifecycle, through maximum power point tracking and remote diagnostics for each PV module. Safety is ensured with automatic module shut off during installation, maintenance and fire-fighting.
