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.

I realised I needed micro inverters for the system to work at all. The shadowing issues were well addressed by Soltek but not by some other previous fly by night quote providers.
Now after 9 months I can see the problems with overshadowing from a tree on the North side. I am disappointed with how much overshadowing there is but still very happy with the micro-inverters. tI would be useless without them.

Would be nice if the Envoy monitoring system had relay contacts for heating hot water when power produced was over 5kw, at the moment this excess power is lost. Would love to hear of other options for this.

Still true, we have lost over 580 kwh in 9 months but have generated 7.45 Mwh so very happy with that.

Great that I am able to see the performance of each solar panel using the Enlighten App. That the enphase inverter "black box" is located within my current fuse box was the deciding factor in choosing these inverters.

The enphase app is very good and gives practically live updates of your production, consumptions along with how much you are importing and exporting to the grid. It seems to line up very well with AGL's app also so no surprises so far!

Contacted Enphase and told me to get array information from installation company first, so they could have look at the efficiency which is not to the peak power issue.
