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.

Enphase Solar Inverter Reviews

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. After a year of operation everything is great. Especially being able to see the performance of each panel. I do wish Enphase would release their new battery options in AU.

I was definitely keen on being able to monitor individual panel performance and not have any one panel affect the output of the whole system. The microinverters were the answer.

the app often reports a system error - I think more to do with internet connection.

Not really a problem as I use the battery app most of the time

Still loving the panel level monitoring. After going Enphase this time around, if I were to add an additional system in the future, it would be Enphase based again. After a month of paid Enlighten Manager subscription, appears they have now given me the additional functionality of Enlighten Manager for free now.
