Fronius solar inverter reviews

Average Customer Rating:

Fronius make some of the best inverters in the world. They used to be playing catch up with SMA in terms of industry reputation and quality, but I would argue that they have well and truly caught up in the last 2 years. I would happily have one on my house.

They are also one of the first inverter brands to be named as compatible with the Tesla Powerwall battery system. Their Fronius Symo Hybrid will integrate seamlessly with the Powerwall.

They have really good connectivity and most of their models have "smart grid" features built in that allow you to please even the most fussy electricity network's grid connection rules. Their MPPT efficiency is legendary.

Fronius is a European company established by founder Günter Fronius in Austria in 1945.
The company, over time, grew from being a welding and battery chargers manufacturer, to become one of the most prominent European players in the solar market. Fronius’ solar division has been operating in this field since 1992 and, since then, it has developed a wide series of photovoltaic solutions.

Depending on their needs and specifications, customers will be able to choose among grid-connected inverters (Snap Inverter, Fronius Symo and Fronius Galvo series), string inverters (Fronius IG Plus, Fronius IG TL, and Fronius IG series), and central inverters that are the ideal choice for commercial and industrial solar applications (Fronius Agilo, Fronius Agilo TL, and Fronius CL).

In late 2010, Fronius opened its Australian office. Based in Melbourne, this new division proved extremely important in order to meet the increasing demand for solar products in Australia. Here, the company not only provides customer service and technical assistance, but also offers product demonstrations and training courses.

We have only had one problem and that was a close lightening strike that tripped the circuit breaker and stopped power production. Monitor your system all the time. The inverter has not given us any problems since installed and setup correctly. However, solar is not install and forget. I recommend Owners monitor the system on a daily basis. With what electricity providers pay for feed in tariffs it is better to use your own power first. So monitor your power production and use it to the best that you can by not running all appliances at once. For example don't run anything when the water heater is going. Don't run the dishwasher with the stove or oven going. I bought a electricity monitor that measures what you use off the grid only so by using this and keeping the power used as close to zero as possible will save plenty. It is all about education. See what appliances use the most in your household and time them to use your power first.

Fantastic inverter, very happy about it. I regret not having bought one battery storage ready and a consumption meter system synchronize to my production metering provided by the inverter.

We deliberately opted for the latest model Fronius 3KW inverter, which includes a wireless networking capability. The supplier - Infinite Energy - helped me to network it to my home router and I'm able to connect to the IE database (somewhere in Europe) and review a lot of data stored there about my system. The same data is available on the inverter if I venture outside and take the time to page through it.

The company changed my inverter form a 4KW unit to a 6KW unit trying to shotgun poor performance issues. The electrican installed 2 strings then paralled them to one input to the inverter.. Would preferred to have 2 seperate strings inputted to the inverter... They did not listen to me.. plus they ran the conduit outside the brickwork rather than in the wall cavity ...

It tripped during a rainy period a few months ago. I didn't know when or why, until it was explained by the fronius tech support. I was told it shouldn't have happened and to contact them when it trips again. I now check it weekly, more often when it rains.

I reported to the installer that the system wasn't working properly and they automatically blamed Fronius as being defective, after complaining on several ocassions over 6 weeks, it was finally admitted that the installer incorrectly wired the system and after two months it was rectifed, bloody poor. Cost me two months of solar production, which I was not compensated for. Then after 6 months, the Fronius system failed and needed to be replaced under warranty, once again the installer took too long and Fronius were way too slow in reacting and sending a replacement. Cost me another month of solar production. I am furious with both of them and will never use them again!

At 2 1/2 years the inverter 'half' failed, and although it was fixed poste haste, Fronius only fixed the section of the inverter that failed, and soon after the other section failed as well. It to was fixed poste haste, so I can't complain about their service, but I can complain about the reliability of the inverter.

it does its job as far as I can tell. There sometimes seems to be discrepancies between the inverter readings and my two way power meter readings - not sure why nor which is correct.

Failed 3 times in 6 years, 10 months after system installation replaced, another 10 months main electronic circuit boards replaced and now just out of warranty totally dead AGAIN! No service from Fronius Australia - they didn't want to be out of pocket. I could not even discuss the matter with the Service Manager as he is "a very busy man - he is a Manager!" I would recommend stay well clear of Fronious either purchase a SMA unit or go with a cheap brand and you will get the same life of Fronious where you pay a premium for a supposedly quality product.
