National Grid is partnering with SolarEdge Technologies to use the company’s StorEdge inverters for customers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

The StorEdge inverters will be used in National Grid’s new ConnectedSolutions program, which allows customers to reduce electric use during periods of high energy through connected devices. Owners of new and pre-installed StorEdge inverters can receive financial incentives for participating in National Grid’s ConnectedSolutions program.

“National Grid’s leadership in supporting distributed renewable energy resources demonstrates how the energy market is undergoing a strategic transition,” Lior Handelsman, SolarEdge’s vice president of marketing and product strategy, said. “SolarEdge is dedicated to help drive this transition with innovative energy ecosystems that support smart management at both the local and grid level.”

SolarEdge is a leader in smart energy technology. The company developed an intelligent inverter solution that alters how power is harvested and managed in photovoltaic (PV) systems. The SolarEdge inverter seeks to maximize power generation while lowering the cost of energy produced by the PV system.

“At National Grid, we are committed to implementing creative and innovative solutions to provide cleaner and more cost-effective energy to our customers. We are excited that SolarEdge is a key player in the launch and continued expansion of our ConnectedSolutions program,” John Isberg, vice president of Customer Solutions at National Grid, said. “SolarEdge’s fleet of pre-installed StorEdge inverters are helping us successfully kick off this program and its many qualified installers will also assist in adding new participants in order to significantly increase the program’s reach.”
