The FE Series – Their Newest Inverter Line
Fronius USA has just announced their latest innovation and next inverter phase for the solar industry. The Fronius FE Inverter line is a module-level optimized system that offera technological advancements such as increased design flexibility, shade mitigation, and module-level data. Their new optimized inverter line leverages the strengths of string inverters with module-level power electronics (optimizers), integrated communications and sophisticated monitoring and analytics.
The new Fronius FE inverter line streamlines design of your solar system, maximizes energy production, and reduces shade impact, all while allowing for significant design flexibility. The advanced module-level electronics uses the fewest components of any integrated module-based solution on the market.
The Fronius FE Inverter Line Offers
- Increased Energy Harvest for an optimum ROI.
- Module flexibility- compatible with your module of choice.
- Wireless Communications without external power or in-house wiring.
- Rapid DC shutdown with smart phone app.
- Module-level monitoring
Lowest Cost of Ownership
- Unbeatable reduction in Total Cost of Ownership due to optimization technology and inverter design
- In the event of a module-level electronics failure, the PV module continues to produce energy however the output from that single module is unoptimized.
- Inverters are field serviceable and designed to operate for the life of the PV system. Should service ever be needed, components are field swappable in one truck roll by one technician… all without ever needing to get on the roof.
- Module-level and inverter data on the same platform
- Integrated Wi-Fi® connectivity
- No additional monitoring components required
- Combines the advantages of microinverters and optimizers into a single solution
- Architecture backed by leading PV module companies
This new inverter line from Fronius provides 35th Street Solar with another top of the line, world class inverter solution. It has many similarities to the SolarEdge System: it uses power optimizers directly on the panels, offers module level monitoring, but offers us some other advantages as well…
Fronius FE Pairs Well with Sunpreme Solar Panels
For one, the Fronius FE Inverter Line pairs up well with our Sunpreme Maxima GxB Series Double-Glass Frameless Bifacial Panels. Due to some technical and design issues the Sunpreme panels are not a good match for the SolarEdge System. But we are so impressed with what Sunpreme offers that we searched for the best optimized inverter solution for these amazing panels. And the Fronius FE Inverter Line is the solution we were searching for.
We believe the Sunpreme / Fronius FE combination will perform as well or better than our coveted Silevo / SolarEdge System. Plus, the different systems give us alternatives to design the best system for your home based on your individual needs.
String Inverters Just Don’t Cut It for Us
A lot of companies will just use a cheaper conventional string inverter for their systems, but we have seen first hand how much more potent a Module Level Power Optimizer is at producing more power for the same system size. Up to 20% more power works for us!
We are committed to giving our customers the absolute best equipment. And we have resoundingly decided that string inverters just don’t cut it compared to the advantages and increased power production a Module Level Power Optimized System produces. We keep asking ourselves… “Why would anyone use a string inverter for their home solar system when there is a vastly superior solution available?” SolarEdge and Fronius LE are both best in class inverter solutions that produce more power for you. We would be proud to have these systems on our roofs.
35th Street Solar can provide you with a vastly superior system for significantly less dollars while using advanced N-Type Cell solar panels combined with SolarEdge or Fronius FE State of the Art / Module Level Power Optimized Inverter Systems.
