SolarEdge expects product installations to top 3,000 alone in France in 2010


Distributed solar power harvesting start-up SolarEdge has seen a rapid adoption of its integrated module power harvesting technology in France through one of the top three residential integrators in the country, Solelux Toiture. According to SolarEdge, several hundred of its systems have already been installed this year and the company expects approximately 3,000 to be installed by year’s end, equivalent to 10MWp. The firm claims that its power harvesting technology can boost solar energy system production by as much as 25%..

“We discovered the SolarEdge technology in September 2009 and have been installing their system with for our clients since January 2010,” noted Fabrice Pierron, VP at Solelux Group. “Our experience with SolarEdge demonstrates that their technology is very attractive for classic rooftop installations. Furthermore, the SolarEdge architecture opened up additional opportunities to install PV systems in places which have so far proved to be very problematic due to shading, orientation, and difference in inclination, to name only a few. After the installation of several hundred systems, we are confident that SolarEdge provides solutions that solve major power conversion problems, rendering our installations much more reliable over time.”

SolarEdge said that due to the new safety regulations enforced by the National Committee for the Safety of Electricity Users (CONSUEL), the SolarEdge solution is more compelling to the French market as has a fully automatic solution for electrocution prevention and fire safety.
