|Neat and tidy unit that is easy to use and monitor.
Bought From: Planet Power Review Date: 7 May 2014
|The company changed my inverter form a 4KW unit to a 6KW unit trying to shotgun poor performance issues.
The electrican installed 2 strings then paralled them to one input to the inverter..
Would preferred to have 2 seperate strings inputted to the inverter... They did not listen to me.. plus they ran the conduit outside the brickwork rather than in the wall cavity ...

|The inverter has broken down twice but repairs were quick and efficient. It appears the cause of the failures has been addressed.

|The display of instant readings is one of the best I've seen.
Also easy to navigate thru menu to check on history.
Display has big digits and is very easy to read from 2 metres in front of screen. No glasses required

|It tripped during a rainy period a few months ago. I didn't know when or why, until it was explained by the fronius tech support. I was told it shouldn't have happened and to contact them when it trips again. I now check it weekly, more often when it rains.

Bought From: Suntech Solar Review Date: 4 September 2012
|I would rate it as excellent except that the readings of power generated on its internal meter are about 10 to 12% optimistic. Another user I know with the same inverter observed the same inaccurate meter readings. It is quiet electrically so I can use sensitive radio equipment in close proximity. This is an excellent characteristic of the inverter, the IG20 model.

|I wish I had installed a larger one in the first place - so I could have added more panels!

Bought From: Sunbeam Solar Systems Review Date: 30 August 2012
|I reported to the installer that the system wasn't working properly and they automatically blamed Fronius as being defective, after complaining on several ocassions over 6 weeks, it was finally admitted that the installer incorrectly wired the system and after two months it was rectifed, bloody poor. Cost me two months of solar production, which I was not compensated for. Then after 6 months, the Fronius system failed and needed to be replaced under warranty, once again the installer took too long and Fronius were way too slow in reacting and sending a replacement. Cost me another month of solar production. I am furious with both of them and will never use them again!

|At 2 1/2 years the inverter 'half' failed, and although it was fixed poste haste, Fronius only fixed the section of the inverter that failed, and soon after the other section failed as well. It to was fixed poste haste, so I can't complain about their service, but I can complain about the reliability of the inverter.

|it does its job as far as I can tell. There sometimes seems to be discrepancies between the inverter readings and my two way power meter readings - not sure why nor which is correct.
