Solar Optimisers

Solar panel optimisers Essex

What is a Solar Optimiser?

An optimiser is a small device attached to each solar panel in a solar energy system.

The optimiser is designed to optimise the performance of each individual panel, ensuring that your system operates at its highest efficiency.

Solar optimisers offer an alternative to micro optimisers, giving the same benefits whilst using a single inverter.

Do I Need an Optimiser?

If you have a solar energy system or are considering installing one in Essex or the south east, optimisers offer several advantages that make them a worthwhile investment. Here are a few reasons why you may need an optimiser:

Shade Management

Optimisers enable individual panels to operate independently. This means that if one panel is shaded or underperforming, it won’t affect the entire system’s performance. This shade management feature ensures you get the maximum energy output from your solar array, even in less-than-optimal conditions.

Panel-Level Monitoring

With optimisers, you can easily monitor the performance of each individual panel. This detailed insight allows you to promptly identify any issues and take appropriate action, ensuring that your solar system operates efficiently.


Optimisers offer greater flexibility and scalability compared to traditional solar systems. You can easily expand your solar array by adding more panels with optimisers without worrying about the limitations of traditional string inverters.

The Benefits of Solar Optimisers

Investing in optimisers for your solar system offers a range of benefits:

Higher Energy Yield

Optimisers contribute to a higher overall energy yield by allowing each panel to perform optimally, regardless of shading or performance variations.

Enhanced Safety

With optimisers, the system operates at a lower voltage, reducing the risk of electrical hazards and improving the safety of your solar installation.

Greater Reliability

The individualised design of optimisers ensures that if one panel fails, the rest of the system continues to operate seamlessly. This redundancy feature enhances the reliability and longevity of your solar energy system.

Real-Time Monitoring

Optimisers provide real-time data on the performance of each panel, allowing you to monitor your energy production and consumption, optimise your energy usage, and save on utility bills.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can optimisers be retrofitted onto an existing solar system?

Yes, optimisers can be retrofitted onto an existing solar system, depending on the type of inverter currently used. A qualified solar professional can assess your system to determine if retrofitted optimisers are suitable for your situation.

Do I need an optimiser in a small solar system?

Optimisers can improve energy yields and system performance even in small solar systems. Shade management and individual panel monitoring are particularly important, as even a small amount of shading can affect the entire system’s performance.

Where are optimisers installed in a solar system?

Optimisers are typically attached to the back of each solar panel, either during installation or as a retrofitting option. They are connected to a monitoring system that provides individual panel performance data in real time, allowing you to optimise your solar energy usage.

Can I use optimisers with other components in my solar system, such as batteries?

Yes, optimisers can be used in conjunction with other components in a solar system, including batteries. They provide accurate monitoring data, allowing you to optimise your energy usage and effectively manage your energy storage.
