Clenergy SPH15 first installed in 2013. This one lasted 2 years then GFCI Fault and had to be replaced. That one lasted only one year before the same fault meant another replacement. Crikeys! Not too flash these inverters. Now, just today, again, it has failed. Same fault. So that's 4 inverters in 5 years. That's awful in my opinion.

A terrible Inverter, Unreliable. 2 replacements in last 4 years. Out of warranty. When I check the repair companies they tell me there are no parts available to repair SPH-15 system. That there has been a rash of failures in Gold coast in the last 3 weeks. 30-04-2018. repairers told me it was prone to failure. They believed it was a faulty design.

In the past 5 years I have had 3 Clenergy Inverters as each one has basically just switched itself off and gone blank. I was under warranty until 2 weeks ago when the third inverter “died”. Origin Energy have told me that they no longer use that brand and because I am now out of warranty and have had so many issues in the past they are prepared to install a Zever inverter at cost price. I have agreed as my warranty will start again but I believe it is only a 5 year warranty as before. Hopefully this brand will live up to expectations!

Ground check issue after 3 yrs, system was replaced but another issue after 3 yrs. Can no longer get a replacement as it is out of 5 yrs warranty. I dont think this junk is good for the environment at all.. Australian government should be more stricter in approving junk products into australian households

Initially they installed my inverter under my electricity box when after about 6 months they rang to tell me it was in the wrong spot and put it in a totally different place. Now it has totally died only two weeks after the 5 year warranty ran out. Only lasted 5 years!

First one replaced under warranty 6 months after origin installed system. Second one just out of warranty and is now not working, with the same problem " ground fault" showing on screen. $180 for origin to fault find and another $800 to replace. 1.5 kw system feeds into grid and "saves" me around $350 a year. I'll be fitting something more reliable myself!

Had system installed by EnergyAware in March 2011 and was happy with system until now. The Clenergy SPH30 inverter has now failed, outside the 5 year warranty. Should last more than 6 years before failing. So while I would recommend EnergyAware, who are providing support to me (and are easy to contact and respond to queries), I am not happy with Clenergy or their product, and would not recommend them. In addition, Clenergy provided a document that implied I had a 10 year warranty, but the warranty was actually only for 5 years - misleading.

I have replaced one clenergy inverter under warranty and now that one needs to be replaced after 2 years of service. Avoid clenergy inverters. A neighbor of mine has had to replace his clenergy inverter twice as well. VERY POOR RELIABILITY. Original systems were installed by Origin energy in 2011.

Shuts down often, reboots. Exploded 2 month out of warranty, Origin not interested. Clenergy not interested. Fair trading to be looking into this item.

I had a Clenergy SPH15 installed about 4-5 years ago as a 1.5KW pay over 2 year package thru Origin Energy and, whilst I am not unhappy about the savings, I am already on my third (warranty replaced) invertor and am concerned about what the cost will be if/when the current invertor turns its toes up out of warranty. In both failure cases it took nearly 2 months for warranty action.

The only thing personally I would like is a way to remotely view the inverter readout which is not an option with this inverter, but I know other inverters do allow a remote unit to be located in the house, but I gather that would be subject any relevant price increase and whether after extra cost it is still worth it.

The installers wanted to install my inverter in the sun facing north all day. I asked them to install it in the shade as that was what I'd read was best for inverters. It was installed in the shade and has been happily working.

As above, have now had it on for 12 mths. Have not had a bill during that time, and have just received a chq from ergon for over $700! As far as answer on service question, we have not had to call them so cant judge.

The only time we have had the inverter recalibrate is when there has been interruptions to supply due to work in our area. Otherwise the system appears stable - for someone who knows nothing about what should be happening - and if the blue light is on we are happy and it appears to be working well.

Initially the inverter, although working well, produced very strong radio interference in the AM band, meaning that some stations could not be listened to in about half of the house. Eventually the inverter was replaced by Clenergy, and the new one, although producing some interference, was acceptable.

The only frustrating things about this inverter are: 1. I can't read the figures off the LCD after the panels have finished charging for the day. I read the power generated figure, and save the data in a spreadsheet (along with 2 items of data from my smart meter - the total exported for the day, and the total used for the day.) 2. No WIFI connection / IP address, so I can't remotely read the power generated figures. I called the company re this (because it is supposedly an 'option' however it is still not available as of August 2012.
