Which is Best for You? SolarEdge Energy Hub or Genesis?

A solar inverter is a critical component in your solar energy system. It is responsible for the quality and safety of the power being used in your system. The more efficient your inverter is, the fewer cells are required to generate power, reducing the overall cost of the entire system.

SolarEdge is best known for its pioneering concept of matching string inverters with individual DC optimisers. Their inverters have individual panel monitoring, individual panel optimisation, more energy generation, and a safety mechanism for emergencies. SolarEdge gives you two inverter choices so you can decide which best suits your household energy needs: the SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis Inverter and the SolarEdge Energy Hub.

Let’s look at what you get with each inverter.

SolarEdge Genesis

SolarEdge Genesis.

The SolarEdge HD-Wave Genesis Inverter has game-changing design simplicity that allows the use of a single string for systems up to 6.7kW. The Genesis Inverter facilitates fast installation and is specifically designed to work with SolarEdge power optimisers for higher energy yield. It comes with all the traditional SolarEdge benefits such as their SafeDC and integrated arc fault protection, optimised energy production and long-term warranties. This rapid inverter also has SetApp for easy inverter commissioning. Its record-breaking efficiency allows more energy production and battery-ready solutions to support on-grid storage. The HD-Wave Genesis is an ideal inverter for residential homes providing cost-effective energy for any roof type, while allowing both outdoor and indoor installation.

SolarEdge Energy Hub

SolarEdge Energy Hub.

The SolarEdge Energy Hub Inverter with Prism Technology integrates all your energy management needs and brings together the capabilities of existing SolarEdge residential inverters into a single product. The Energy Hub has many interfaces to accommodate your installation needs like great battery backup, EV charging, built-in consumption meter, generator compatibility, and smart energy add-ons for higher performance and greater flexibility. The Energy Hub provides panel-level monitoring and built-in consumption monitoring which you can control through SetApp as well. This will allow you to manage, control and track the energy that is being consumed, and reduce your utility costs.

The Final Verdict.

With all these exceptional features, you might think: which is the best inverter for your home? Well, it depends on what features are most important to you and how long you plan to stay at the premises. The Genesis gives you all the performance SolarEdge is known for at a cost-effective price point. The SolarEdge Energy Hub provides additional flexibility thanks to its Prism Technology and can do it all. It accommodates all your energy needs in one, easy-to-install compact unit and combines the convenience of a whole house backup solution.

However, regardless of which SolarEdge inverter you choose, you get to experience the excellent efficiency and outstanding energy yield.
