OUR SOLAR POWER SYSTEM DESIGN CENTER
CHOOSING A SOLAR ACCREDITED NABCEP PROFESSIONAL
Palmetto Solar understands that every home is different. Our in-house team of solar engineers, solar specialists and North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) are the industry leaders in solar power system design. We focus on each and every detail of your system to ensure all are sized, sited and installed at the highest standard to achieve optimal performance. Please take a look at our solar installation photo gallery to see the custom photovoltaic (PV) systems that we've designed for other homeowners like you.
SOLAR PANELS | PHOTOVOLTAIC (PV) PANELS
Palmetto Solar uses the latest solar products like LG and SolarEdge.
LG is a well established brand known for making state-of-the-art consumer technology for solar panels and solar pv systems. Their reputation is prominent in the solar industry with research and development spanning more than three decades. LG solar panels and photovoltaic pv panels deliver some of the highest efficiency numbers in the business, with their 18.3% efficient 300 watt units well above the industry average of 14-15%.
Backed by a $140 billion dollar conglomerate, LG solar panels and photovoltaic pv panel systems carry a real 10 year product warranty and a 25 year performance warranty.
SOLAR PV INVERTERS
The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. Combining panel level electronics and fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage, regardless of the number of modules in a string or environmental conditions.
SOLAR POWER OPTIMIZER
The Power Optimizer is attached to each solar panel allowing for individual maximum Power Point tracking (MPPT) on each solar panel installed. This allows each panel to product the maximum power it can produce independently of the other panels at a particular point in time. (Most inverters available in the South African market today at String Inverters. The nature of these inverters is that the maximum power point (MPPT) is monitored on a string level, and not on individual panels. The result of this is that all solar panels in the string’s output is reduced to the weakest producing panel).
With the use of SolarEdge optimizers on each solar panel, the design of the Solar Power System is much more flexible, allowing for installation on various roof faces, north, east and west. It also allows for installation much closer to shaded areas, as only the shaded panel is affected, and not the entire string.
All Power Optimizers carry a 25-year standard warranty.
