The optimizers are attached to the rails, then to each other, and then to each module to form two strings of 10. The SolarEdge optimizers maximise the production from each solar module.

Each solar module is attached to the rail using 4 end or mid clamps. Here we are installing a mid clamp and using a torque wrench to ensure it is fastened to the manufacturer’s specifications.

Each row of modules are installed one inch from each other. This spacing allows for the necessary airflow to keep the modules from overheating. Too much heat causes reduced production.
