About Fronius, Solar Inverters

Fronius solar inverters review

Fronius Customer Service: 03 8340 2900

Fronius is a European company established by founder Günter Fronius in Austria in 1945.

The company grew over time from being a welding and battery charger manufacturer to become one of the most prominent European players in the solar market. Fronius’s solar division has been operating in this field since 1992.

In late 2010, Fronius opened its Australian office, based in Melbourne. Here, the company not only provides customer service and technical assistance, but also offers product demonstrations and training courses.

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 5 years. I would happily have one of these inverters on my house.

They are easy to 'export limit', if your local network insists on this as part of your solar connection agreement. But you do have to buy the 'Fronius Smart Meter (FSM)' accessory to do this (about $500 extra). The FSM also allows full consumption monitoring (over and above solar monitoring) although I am not a fan of the Fronius SolarWeb monitoring software. Personally, I prefer Solar Analytics and always recommend adding Solar Analytics to your Fronius inverter and using that for monitoring instead.

Fronius solar inverters usually come with 2 solar inputs (or MPPTs). Their MPPT efficiency is legendary. And if you have a symmetrical east/west facing roof you can often put both the east and the west array into one input - leaving the second input free for a third roof area.

The only downside with the Fronius hardware that I am aware of is they are fan cooled and can be rather noisy. Keep them away from living areas!

Fronius Solar Inverter Warranty Notes

All Fronius string inverters are accompanied by 5 years Fronius Warranty Plus. However, by registering at www.solarweb.com, customers can receive an additional 5 years warranty free of charge.

If you should experience what you believe to be a warranty related issue with your inverter, you should first contact the original installer of the unit. However, if that installer is no longer around, don't panic.

Fronius advise that in this situation they first require the customer to find an qualified solar installer to verify the issue with the inverter (out of pocket). Once the issue has been confirmed, the installer will then contact Fronius on your behalf. Fronius will then work with the installer to arrange for replacement of the inverter. If a customer needs help sourcing an installer, the company is able to make a recommendation.

Good looking ,compact.
My Medical Centre[ Victorian Specialist Centre - Lower Templestowe ] has a solar System of 68 panels with a Fronius Inverter [ 2.079 KW].
Installed by Energy Clouds Australia [established since 2009 ], owned by Feng [ engineer ] with a regular team of 13 fully qualified workers hence they did the whole job within 9 hours [ on Sunday -9 workers with 7 vans ]. I was recommended by a good friend that they are the most efficient, neat job and only use Fronius inverter and Longi panels [latest most famous efficient panels].
I recommending him because I am so happy with his workmanship and the honour down to earth quote - unbeatable.

at the moment, 12.30 pm, sunny day, sw winds, cold as buggery. it is showing 4300 watts which would think is good for the middle of winter. our summer time bills, after it was installed, were way down to $23 per month, with the air conditioner flat out to combat the 38 and 40 degree heat around here. we'll see how it all goes thie comming spring and summer, very happy so far with no problems at all with the job the installers did, i hope this helps your request. regards Bruce Rennie.

We didn’t realise there needed to be a cooling fan in wall unit. This makes a small amount of noise. We would have chosen a different location for the inverter away from an outdoor sitting area.
It so just something to be aware of when locating your inverter. Not a big issue just a minor annoyance.

The inverter itself is performing brilliantly, but the fronius app does not perform well at all, I have not been able to connect to the app via my wi-fi for at least 2 months, so I rely on the app from my supplier to feed me the information, I have contacted the company that installed my system but they only referred me to YouTube video’s to fix the problem, but to no avail, they did say they could come and have a look at it for me for a service fee of $80.

A year ago, the inverter ran at 5000W on a sunny day. This generated nearly 40KWh per day. Now tops only 4000W which generates about 25-30KWh per day. I need to do a bit of troubleshooting to see why I'm missing out on 1000W each day. Could just be dirty panels, yet to determine.

Good apps to monitor generation. Earlier on we noticed our solar generation was being limited by the grid voltage (high) within the fronius app/web page we could see all the history of grid voltage spikes. With this history we were able to get powercore to lower the grid voltage supply and get our system to reach its full generation.
Our last bill 90 days February to April. We sent approximately 3500kwh to the grid. Not including the generation we used directly.

The inverter regularly tells me that there is a system issue (unable to convert the amount of power being generated) at least I think that is what it is telling me. The power company says it is the installers issue and the installer tells me its the power company's issue. The system inspector suggested it was the power suppliers issue. Something about an adjustment they could make to cater for the power being generated in the street??? And don't even start me on the solar rebate debarkle!!!!!

Inverter is OK but technical information is virtually unobtainable. When I have had issues, Fronius Australia refuses to provide any information as I am not one of their recognized installers.
The 'authorized' electrician who installed it could not get the internet interface working and left, blaming my ISP provider. The problem was not the ISP provider. I finally manager to connect after a week of chasing around. The need to connect to the internet to see what my inverter is doing seems overly complicated. Why not a detailed local display?
Basically a good (if overly complex) product let down by poor documentation and no manufacturer support.

At end of 60c FIT Beyond Solar installed an additional 5kw system with a Fronius 5kw Primo inverter. I monitor my system daily and noticed error 102 ie over voltage grid coming up around midday each day causing shut down and restart repeatedly. Beyond solar adjusted the software to the max I Allowed and this reduced the problem but did not cure it. I then started monitoring the mains voltage with a true RMS meter and found peaks of around 268 v were common around the middle part of the day. This voltage was measured with both solar systems deactivated.The max mains voltage should not exceed I think 253 according the the Australian Standard. I then contacted Origin and requested they come and tap down our transformer located 25 metres away on our rural property. They did not initially want to do anything but once I told them I was a retired electrical engineer they agreed the information I was sending them was genuine and was way out of specifications. Not too long after they tapped down the transformer and have not seen error 102 since and the volage at midday midsummer at our distribution box runs never above 245 V.
A neighbour with the same problem after I told him also had his transformer tapped down and cured the problem for him as well.
There are various reasons for the power utilities to run higher voltages than the Australian Standard but that another subject altogether.
As for Fronius, looks to me to be probably the best of the lot.

I was quite disappointed when after a few months I started having "power derating due to overtemp" issues with my Fronius. I'd chosen this inverter based on the fantastic reputation it has and that it was so highly recommended. It took a long time and a lot of back and forth to finally get the unit replaced...and it was replaced with a re-conditioned unit despite only being a few months old. That unit then also had the same problem and needed to be further worked on in order to get the issue resolved.

Prior to installation Solar Wholesalers electrician identified high voltage at the power board. It was well over what is deemed allowable 253v. After everything was hooked up and the panels were generating power the inverter shutdown because of high voltage whilst the electrician and I were looking at the read outs on the inverters. The electrician assured me that the Fronius inverter was designed for such and event. Fortunately, I have had no issues with the inverter but after having contacted SA Power Networks and being advised that it would take three months to fix I am still having high voltage issues. Needless to say I am still following up on this issue.

The issue I Have is not with the inverter, installer, the product or the actual installation which have all been above my expectations.
I am 100% self sufficient during the day and am returning to the grid double what I draw from the grid.
Hears the rubs:
Firstly the retailers will only pay about one third the price for the power generated by me and returned to the grid over what they charge for my usage from the gird. REALLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
Secondly because I live at the end of the Ausnet controlled power grid my inverter often goes into a State 102 and switches itself of from the grid. Which it is meant to do.
But do you think SP AUSNET are in a hurry to drop the voltage at the Sub Station. Not on your life. Been waiting since December 2018 for them to do so. And despite both the retailer of the system and myself constantly contacting them nothing had been done.

I am very pleased with the Solar system to date, not quite a year yet. The power bills have certainly reduced, both as a result of solar and shopping around for a provider. Shopping around for a provider is very important otherwise they just charge you what they like and basically nullify the solar savings. The company I went with I’d still rate highly as the work has certainly lasted. I haven’t had a need to go back to them yet about anything so I can’t really comment on their after sales service.

WiFi signal needs to be very strong near the inverter to pick up the signal. Worked initially for 2 months, then I kept getting loss of signal, with no other change to my network configuration. Fixed by putting a WAP closer to the inverter but despite other devices picking strong signals right next to the inverter, I only get weak-medium strength from the inverter set up page. Also the app doesn’t work well to set up the network - much better to enter the IP address and manually set up. Otherwise, once this has been setup, the fronius home page is very detailed in terms of information - even the basic version is good enough, so in the end, compared to other inverter platforms, it’s a pretty decent product

The www.solarweb.com/ site run by Fronius to supply clients with the production/consumption statistics of their solar systems appears to be not entirely accurate.
On some days the reporting shuts down at sundown and opens again at midnight, so that "energy imported from grid" is not reported during this time. And even when the five minute reports start again at midnight, the "energy imported from the grid remains at a constant level, no matter how many electrical devices I might switch on or off.

Fronius is supposed to be the inverter of choice in Australia, but they clearly only care about sales and not the end customer. I raised a technical question on their Australian web site regarding the minimum number of solar modules in a series string for the MPPT to track maximum power. I sent two emails to the only email address they provided and after 2 weeks did not even get courtesy of a reply. To test my theory about only caring about sales, I sent a request to the same email address about a bulk purchase of inverters and got a response within minutes. This company has a serious credibility gap and I past behavior is probably an indication of future behavior so I won’t hold my breath when it comes to aftersales support!

I have written to their parent company and will be interested to see if they share the same indifferent attitude.

well after first install the first bill was less the ever before, second bill was way under half of what we were getting, then switched to solar boost in january as per their recommendations, 22 cents feed in tariff and 3 % discount through the summer months, and after next bill will ring origin and go back to usage for the winter months to get the most from the solar system, higher discount pay on time then in spring /summer will go back to solar boost for the longer daylight hours. so all in all our system is working great, we have a 6.48 system 24x 275 jinko panels with the fronius inverter...... looking at the prediction from origin our next bill should be around $25.83 could be around the 40.00 dollar mark with less sunlight, but very happy with the system we have, and wish to thank you finn for all your info that helped us to make the right decision because it is a bit confusing... appreciate all your posts still keep up with you posts..thanks again regards dave

This inverter has an internal fan which some people may find quite noisy if installed on an outside wall near a window. Ours is installed in our garage and the only time you can hear it is when you are outside and it is not intrusive. It does get quite warm but not too hot to the touch and the fan does not run all the time. Most days it produces between 4 and 5 KW and on sunny days it regularly produces 5 KW. Our power bills are drastically reduced. We have to pay a small amount during winter but so far this summer we are a few dollars in credit which is quite good considering we ran a fully ducted 6KW air conditioner for approximately 10 hours on Christmas Day.

Solargain did a very professional installation which is worth considering because their product was more expensive than what has been advertised on TV.

It has a fan that is a little noisy, would have been good to know that before installation. It also gives off heat, not a lot, but hnece the fan, again would have been good to know that before installation. We may have changed its location had we known.

The initial set up was very difficult to work with a wireless hotspot to our phone which we had to have as we dont have a wireless network. But they did get it to work. However, the setup in terms of data collection and reporting was minimal thought. We get a daily total of power generated, but I think hourly would have been good too.

The Fronius 5.5 kwh inverter has peaked at 5100 W to this date and has generated an average of 25.95 kWh per day since the 1/4/18, so am very happy with the system so far. My direct electricity a/c's for 2017 for the period 17/3/17 - 14/12/17 were $2282.12 which is 8.38/Day (Origin Energy) . I am with Energy Local this year and my my A/c's since installing Solar total $443.78 which averages 1.96/Day for 226 days.
September and October A/c's were $ 30 - 40 in credit so am trying to move all usage to daylight hours and looking forward to reduction in suitable battery storage.

Whether it was the inverter or installation the first 4 months were abysmal. Once the technician came back the performance improved. Although the network voltage was blamed by the installer, the installers told me that they had been aware of an issue, but had not told me, putting the fault down to the area the house is in. They did not tell me about the issue.When I complained to them about the fault they fixed it, but at first said nothing could be done. Then I was told that as they were very busy they cold not come back for 6 weeks !. As I was away from the house for several months due to family illness, I was not able to monitor performance on a daily basis at the premises. When I was at the premises it became clear that the inverter was offline for 6 hours on average every day

Stopped supplying Fronius website with daily generation data after about 6 months. Contacted supplier who wants to charge $165 for a call out to check computer linkage. Meanwhile I still receive Fronius notifications when the internet is down,however briefly. This proves the connection is not disrupted except when it is reported to be so.

The panels perform to expectation, the Ergon connection went smoothly, the remote access to the solar.web app monitoring the Fronius inverter works really well, the water heating comes on about 9.30am so most days we get free water heating and the Ergon HomeSmart Savvy website provides really detailed information on usage and generation. Our monthly power bill is running around $12-$30. We would highly recommend Chris, he has already done another install for a relative and that went just as well.

I have had my system installed since the start of April 2018, it is now 10 months later and even tho winter would not have been a good time to review because of the lousy weather, It is now performing and producing about 3kwh more per day than what was quoted in the initial consultation for the System I chose

I am extremely happy with the performance of the inverter as it had wiped off about 75% of my last power bill. I can't wait for the weather to get even hotter with longer days to see what my system will produce.

The inverter's fan is definitely louder than I expected. It's not an issue for us, as it's installed in our garage. I now find it reassuring to walk in to the garage and hear the hum of it running. However, I am glad we didn't install it closer to the wall/window of a living space as the hum would get old fast.

The inverter's wifi connection is very handy to monitor your power production and usage from anywhere in the world. I enjoy pulling it up while I'm travelling to show off to disinterested colleagues. It's also a useful tool to see when I should shift the timer on our hot water system to make the most of our own power production.

The wifi system drops out every now and again, but reconnects itself pretty quickly. The one time it didn't, we contacted our installer (Replenishable Energy, Cairns), and they walked us through how to fix it within minutes.

The Fronius inverter does the job really well, how ever it dropped the solar reporting a couple of times and I have had to go through the powering off and on again with both AC & DC to reconnect to my computer. This may be because my power monitor indicates voltage swings between 231v and 249v on the grid, but I believe power is being fed into the grid during these occasions and I have had to pay for two monthly bills (July and August) only so far.

The Fronius inverter has been really good. The only issue I have run into is occasionally the Fronius Data Manager WiFi Access Point deactivates itself. I know this has happened when my smart meter stops receiving data. The workaround is to go outside and on the inverter to Reactivate the Wifi Access Point. It's annoying when it happens but I'm not sure if it's an issue with the WiFi point itself or if it's because of an issue with my router. I usually reboot the router when this issue occurs. The setup of the Wifi Access Point is also a little confusing (and I work in IT so if it's confusing for me then the average person it would be very confusing for so I would recommend getting this installed and configured professionally to avoid frustration). Apart from these minor points I have been very, very happy with the performance of the 10kw solar system and the Tesla Powerwall 2. Very pleased I chose Fronius inverter and Sunpower panels.

I am mildly concerned that my power output is limited to (what appears) to be a max of 5.05 Kw despite a 6.5kW panel system being installed - I am not sure if this is just caused by the orientation of the panels, and that is the best that they can deliver, or if the inverter (a 5kW model) is limited to that output no matter what the DC input.

We have an 8 kwh inverter with 10 kwh solar panels. This seems to work well. When comparing our system to those of friends, ours seems to be performing somewhat better.
Now is mid winter here in Tas and a cold, wet, overcast winter it has been, but the solar keeps turning in an average of 3-5 kwh whenever it catches a few rays. Unfortunately there is not much sun hours at this time but our last bill from Aurora, May, June, July was half that of last year. We are quite happy with that. We turned on solar in December and since then, even with connection fees, we are well ahead. The next bill will be the winter one, due October 30, usually our highest. Last year it was $1800.00.
