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.

Enphase Solar Inverter Reviews

Absolutely love the ability to see how each panel is performing. The power generation rates seem to be getting really close to the theoretical maximums of the panels and inverters when conditions suit, at one point we did see the system max out at the full 6.6kW for a while.

The micro inverter makes sense when I watch the power production change over to the west side array in the afternoon. Without them I would be not as efficient.

I went with an inverter, Enphase, that had very good technology, functioned well in our situation, enabled monitoring and also didn't require a huge box at the front door. It's early days yet but everything is working to expectations.

The Enphase envoy monitoring system has been very useful, reporting on each panels' daily kWh production and alerting if any are not functioning properly.

Operates well because there is a great difference between cell / inverters due to shading at different times of day.
Still going strong after 10 months.

1 micro-inverter died about 3 weeks after installment which took 2days to replace, since then no problems. Thinking about enlarging the system.

Got my first bill today after a full 1/4 with both my solar panels and the battery. I’m in credit almost $600 dollars. Almost $300 of that is from my solar and battery install, the other is from gov rebate being back dated. To say I’m over the moon is an understatement. Going from an electricity bill if $700-$1700 a 1/4 to them owing me is absolutely awesome. Adrian and the crew did exactly as they said they would. Save me money and give me peace of mind. Thanks Adrian, I appreciate all the work you put in to give me what was needed to help us survive in these hard times.

To date the emphases iq7+ seem to be working very well. The monitoring is already highlighting the benefits of allowing each panel to do its own thing, optimising our generation. Overall very happy with the performance.

The system is great .. from a 7.8Kw (and 22 LG panels) system I've had some > 50 KWh days this summer. I'm glad I pushed for the installers to install panels on the south western facing roof, it's provided some great late afternoon energy during the summer.

The Enphase system is great. The panel on the inside garage wall is minuscule, the rest of the control was installed inside the electric box behind the panel. The Enlighten software is great and with no extra charge. Has consumption monitoring included. There is an easy API to get data from the Cloud if you are so incline but you can also access a URL on the local IP and get a JSON file with the current status. Brilliant!

10 inverters: The system has one 350w inverter per panel, and all 10 worked well from the completion of installation. Enphase monitoring is excellent, it's per panel as well as system level and visible from my smartphone. Energy production is instantly visible and performing as designed.

We have some light shading on part of our north facing roof. Micro-inverters make the most sense in this scenario, and if you’re going down this path, it’s clear from my research that Enphase have a higher % of evangelically passionate customers than any other brand. That says something that whilst slightly perturbing, has to be on balance a good thing!

The Enphase Enlighten App which monitors power out / input / export is a simple and effective tool. I always said I wouldn't be one of those people who checked when the solar panels were producing power and wait to put on the dishwasher BUT I am one of those people thanks to the App. The App allows me to see how much power each panel is producing which is really useful given that we have panels on an east facing roof as well as on the north facing roof.

Today is raining and cloudy but the panels have still managed to produce over 13kWh of power, well in excess of what we have used. This has surprised us as we hadn't expected such efficiency on a non-sunny day. The Enphase IQ7 + Micro Inverters system is ideal for our situation ,which includes panels facing north and east, because it allows each panel to produce it's own power independently of the others.
