Going solar in Florida is a major decision. The success of your solar investment depends on how closely estimates of energy production align with actual production. If your solar array underproduces, you will be stuck paying both your solar loan and an electric bill. If your solar array overproduces, you will have solar loan payments that are higher than they need to be.
Therefore, it is important for solar customers to have monitoring equipment to track the performance of their solar array and the savings it has created. This is a big part of the reason we only install SolarEdge inverters, which include panel-by-panel monitoring that you can access from anywhere in the world. You can login to your SolarEdge portal online to track the production of your solar array in fifteen-minute increments.
See how the monitoring platform allows you to tell if your solar array is working properly with this video tour with Goldin Solar CEO Daren Goldin:
Another great benefit to the SolarEdge monitoring system is that it gives you panel-level monitoring. This allows you to see if a single panel is dysfunctional. If so, your panel’s warranty from Hanwha, combined with the Goldin Solar workmanship warranty, should cover its replacement. You can also use this monitoring platform to determine when it is time to trim tree branches that hang over your solar array.
