About Enphase, Solar Inverters

Enphase solar inverters review

Enphase Customer Service: 03 8669 1679

Enphase Energy is a US-headquartered manufacturer specialising in the development of microinverters for the solar market. Microinverters are miniaturised inverters that work on a per-panel level. It's a very different approach to a single string inverter working with multiple solar panels, as is more commonly the case with solar power system installations.

Given their panel level operation, Enphase microinverters offer a number of advantages over string inverters, including redundancy, more flexible system design, monitoring of individual panels and mitigating the overall impact on a system of solar panel shading. However, be prepared to pay a bit more for a microinverter-based system.

The company's seventh generation microinverter, the Enphase IQ 7 series, is suited to residential applications and commercial systems. The IQ 7 range is around half the weight of the previous iteration and according to Enphase, produces 23% more power.

With around 17 million units all told shipped to date, Enphase Energy is widely considered as the global leader in microinverter technology. The company has cultivated a solid international profile thanks to offices located in different areas of the world, including France, Italy, the United Kingdom and China.

Here in Australia, Enphase serves local customers and provides technical and commercial assistance via its office located in Melbourne or, for our visitors from New Zealand, in Christchurch.

Enphase also produces solar batteries, communication gateways, monitoring systems, installer toolkits and accessories, as well as other energy-related services.

If you have Enphase microinverters installed at your premises, please feel free to share your experience with us and other Australians. Enphase microinverter reviews from Australian customers who have had the devices installed for at least 12 months can be viewed below.

Enphase Microinverter Warranty Notes

Enphase offer a 10 year warranty on its microinverters, covering defects in workmanship and materials.

If you have an issue with any of your Enphase microinverters, your first step should be to contact the original installer for a remedy. Despite any claims otherwise, if they are still in business they are the ones liable for the repair/replacement of a faulty microinverter, assuming it is still within its warranty period.

If your original installer has gone out of business or is no longer contactable, warranty claims must then be lodged by you through Enphase.

Here's how that works:

Enphase advise that customers should visit their website and use the prominent “Find an installer” button (located in the top-right) to locate an installer in their area. The chosen installer will make a site visit to diagnose the problem, and then work with Enphase to arrange a replacement. Enphase provide up to $100 towards labor reimbursement costs.

Model we got was IQ7+ which had a maximum capacity of 290 Watts + or - 3%. At 32 microinveters this produces 9.28 KW, and we always hit 9.2 KW peak power during good days. So we are very happy with its performance so far.

The information from the Envoy S is amazing. Finally a system that is user friendly and does what it supposed to. And amazing backing from the team at Enphase also. They certainly stand by their systems.

Note that we added Solar Analytics to our system, which increased its cost of around $600. But 2 months in, we are pleased to have this third party monitoring device: it is a very useful tool on a daily base.
Due to our roof configuration, micro inverters were our best option. We are very happy so far with the quality of the system.

The Enphase monitoring app, Enlighten Manager, accurately shows Production, Consumption, and Import/Export performance. This is very important to me when comparing to AGL app's energy displays of what I am paying for and what I am being paid for.

The panel display helps me see which panels are impacted by shading at various times of the day, eg. my four east facing panels pickup the morning sun but their production drops in the afternoon.

I am glad I got the 16 microinverters for improved generation as my panels face different directions because of limited roof space. Also included the Envoy device to monitor the system

Tracking consumption with Enphase Enlighten software is great. It helps to minimise power import from the grid.
At this stage the original spinning disk meter is still installed and I can see instanteously when I am exporting or importing power. For example this has been very useful in leaning the maximum setting ( without power import) for the induction cooktop on a cloudy day.

Definitely worth going with microinverters. I love being able to monitor my system’s performance, 24/7 and from anywhere. And I don’t need to worry about the entire system going down if one panel or inverter malfunctions.

Don't forget you can see real time data from the Envoy by going to envoy.local if you're connected to the same network. It all seems to work very weel, and if anything wouldn't - I'd be able to see it straight away through the iPhone app.
