“Being one of nature’s most magnificent events, the solar eclipse is a reminder of the importance of sunlight in all our lives,” said Guy Sella, CEO and chairman of SolarEdge. “With solar energy now having greater significance for power generation, tracking the path of the eclipse is an exciting undertaking. As a leading PV inverter provider in the United States with PV systems installed coast to coast, we are able to leverage our vast fleet of PV systems and real-time monitoring to live track this event,” said Sella.

The company is encouraging installers and system owners in the US to share pictures of the eclipse on social media using the hashtag #PVEclipseTracking.

The California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) expects up to 3GW of energy storage to ramp to provide power and grid support services during the eclipse.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
