Investment Safety

Safe solar systems inherently outperform conventional DC solar systems, harvesting more power from solar modules, with a longer lifespan and superior problem detection.

Getting The Most From Your Solar Investment

Not all solar power systems are equal – in fact, solar and safe solar technologies have a typical payback period of between three and six years, with a lifespan of at least 20 years. In comparison, conventional DC solar systems typically degrade quicker and supply less energy over the course of their lives.

Optimised solar systems produce 5-10% more energy than DC systems when installed in un-shaded, north-facing locations. In some specific cases, this can increase to up to 25% more energy.

As DC solar systems are made up of a connected series of modules (think daisy-chained Christmas lights), if one panel isn't working, it affects every other panel in the chain. To put it simply, a DC solar system is only as good as its weakest link.

How optimised DC solar systems outperform conventional DC systems

  • Optimised DC solar systems provide power optimisation at a module level, which enables more power to be harvested from the solar modules over the life of the system.
  • The solar modules in optimised DC solar systems are designed to operate independently, making the whole system more resilient to variations in the output of individual modules.
  • Safe solar systems provide remote monitoring of individual panel power output, making it easy to identify and rectify any shading or performance issues.
  • Safe solar systems are more durable and reliable, reducing repair and replacement costs over the life of the system.
