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. Enphase 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.

The next generation, the IQ8 is being eagerly anticipated as this will be a “grid-independent” devices. This means solar power systems using it can continue to supply electricity to a household in the event of a blackout.

With around 30 million units all told shipped as at early 2021, 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 by leaving a review. 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 the company to arrange a replacement. Enphase provide up to $100 towards labor reimbursement costs.

It has been 12 months since the system has been connected to the grid. Extremely happy with the performance of the Enphase inverters.

The micro-inverters are performing reliably well. The Enphase Enlighten App is great, allowing us to mo it or the system on a constant basis and see the impact of running various appliances, such as air-conditioning, lights, washing machine, etc.

4kW system installed 2016. Premium type system with Enphase micro inverters.

To date, 2 of the micro-inverters have failed (as in, stopped converting DC to AC and sending power back to our house. Our installer had quite a few issues getting Enphase to honour the warranty. Something to do with the model changing and the new models no longer being compatible. Eventually honoured and fixed.

All are showing signs of corrosion on the housings (all pitted). Visible pitting within the first 2 years. I am 470m from the Ocean.

Currently, all inverters seem to be working (I assume as the power generation trends seem consistent with the time of year) but 9 of the 16 are no longer reporting data back to the Envoy. This last point is more of an annoyance than a problem. Given issues with claiming warranty the last 2 occasions, I won't bother given that they seem to be producing power.

I would not recommend Enphase Microinverters to anyone.

All is working well so far. The only issue is with the (optional) software that lets me monitor our consumption, production and value ($'s) we're putting back into the grid - the software doesn't allow for different prices at different times of the day, e.g. 2.75c/kWh from 7 am - 3pm and 10c/kWh thereafter. You'd have thought that's a very simple thing to programme.

It's great being able to monitor the performance of each individual panel, the amount of solar produced, energy used, and solar exported through Enphase's app, 'Enlighten'.

Unfortunately the inverter control panel regularly disconnects from the internet. I suspect this is not the inverter's issue.

2021 install has Enphase IQ7A , my older enphase S230s from 2017 have been perfect , expect these new IQ7 to be the same . The old and new panels all report individual panel outputs , very nice .

Great information from the Enlighten software on the total system and the individual production of each panel.

Peace of mind from the safety of not having DC lines through our roof down to an inverter.

It has been working great. Had a system error due to wifi disconnecting a few days ago but it fixed itself. So far so good.

Individual inverters attached to each solar panel eliminates the problem of partial shading that prevented us from enjoying solar energy earlier.

Love the Enlightened app for tracking power usage and generation.

No noise, no fan, no hum. Total silent with only 240vac wiring. (The string inverter at work has a fan that is so loud it can be heard in the noisy factory)

Can track status of every panel. When one dies in many years, the rest will keep working.
