  • SolarEdge copied tech for solar-power optimizers, Ampt claims
  • Ampt is seeking sales and import bans from Delaware court and U.S. tribunal

July 29 – Ampt LLC sued Israeli solar-energy company SolarEdge Technologies Inc in Delaware federal court and at a U.S. trade tribunal on Thursday for allegedly violating several of its patents related to solar power.

Fort Collins, Colorado-based Ampt argued in the lawsuits that SolarEdge’s systems infringe eight patents related to Ampt’s power optimizers for photovoltaic (PV) systems.

Ampt CEO Levent Gun said in a statement Thursday that SolarEdge had “sought to improve its own position in the PV market by unlawfully using our proprietary technology without asking our permission or compensating us.”
