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.

Fronius Solar Inverter Reviews

It runs beautifully. I can walk past and just smile when the screen tells me how much power it is drawing from the sun. The app is pretty good and this is the only thing that stops me giving this 5 stars. I can view what the system is doing from anywhere on my smartphone or on a web app. I am not completely confident with the estimated dollar saving/earning that it is giving me but suspect that if I looked hard into it I would get a reading that is helpful. But the system just does everything nicely without any interaction from me.

As the inverter does all the work, in our opinion it pays to spend a bit more on a well known and reliable brand like Fronius.

I have had this system in place now for 9 months. We were provided with a written estimation of performance from MC Electrical and this system is far surpassing what we expected. We are in credit every month and love the automated reporting that you can set up through the Fronius Site, I am able to keep my power company honest. We are very happy with this system and paid more for than we had initially planned to but with the system performing like it does we have no doubt we made the right decision to spend a little more on a quality system. There have been no issues until Telstra modem failed and had to try and connect the Fronius back up to the new Wifi, MC Electrical were eager to assist but used google to get the help I needed before they had time to contact me. Happy to provide the system with a 5 star rating as well as the team at MC Electrical a 5 star rating.

So far the inverter seems to be doing a great job. The app for iPhone to monitor the solar production is a bit clunky, but the actual inverter is fine

The status indicator lights are very difficult to see. For several months I could see no lights at all. By accident, I happened to be indirect line of site to the light aperture and I could see a green light.

The Fronius app. for seeing power generation did show the same as the digital display on the invertor. After several requests, Fronius informed me that there was a problem with this app.! I know log in to their website and I can see power generation in real time and over the past hour, day, month and year. It does not display my consumption from my PV system. I have been told this is only displayed if I have a smart meter. I am still waiting for an answer to my question of can I add a smart meter and at what cost.

A feature of the Fronius inverter that I appreciate is the ability to monitor the system performance in real time from my phone of computer. It gives me peace of mind at any time to confirm that the system is all working correctly.
There have been times when we have been away on holiday and due to unrelated electrical problems in our house, the safety switch tripped and shut down all power in our house. I was able to spot this on the Fronius app on my phone - it showed zero power generation. and I was able to get in touch with someone to go to our house and sort out the problem (not related to the solar system), and get everything online again.

It manages the hot water system via the smart meter and a relay ,which judiciously uses bits of excess power that would otherwise feed to the grid, and we have never had to use grid boost even on cloudy days. This saves us having a separate solar hot water system on the roof and yet still gives us a big system. The element has been downsized to 1800W but that has proved perfectly adequate for a 315L nominal system.

The inverter seems to be working properly, according to the feedback I'm getting from Solar Analytics. The connection from the inverter to the modem ceased working about a month after installation, and it is not a simple matter to re-connect, at least for this 75 year old. I haven't bothered to get the installers to re-connect (I live less than a kilometre from their premises, so it wouldn't be difficult), because Solar Analytics tell me all I need to know, and I believe the feedback from the inverter is unnecessary (please let me know if I'm wrong).

I have the Fronius 6kw inverter, luckily I had 3 phase power so this was an option over a 5 kw. It has run perfectly for the last year, it is in a well shaded spot. I have access to the Fronius app, which allows me to see usage per day. You can also generate customized reports as well. I have seen up to 45 kw solar production in a day. Really happy with it.

The Fronius has a fan that runs to cool the inverter that makes a small amount of noise, and I expect will need bearings or replacing some years down the track, whereas my other older Goodwe inverter does not have a fan. Both 3 phase 5KwH units still working well with the Fronius making up to 6KwH more power over the day as it has 6.6Kw of panels rather than the 5.2Kw for the Goodwe.

The system has been running for approximately 8 months (Feb-Oct) and has performed better than I had expected and have had no issues (as should be the case in the first years). I highly recommend purchasing a top-shelf inverter and ensure that it is installed in the coolest location possible - it runs very hot when the temperature is upwards of 30C. There was a small amount of mucking around to set up the basic web monitoring feature which has been working well since. If I had my time again, I would have paid extra for the Fronius Smart Meter so that I could play around with usage measurements a bit more. In terms of dollar savings, my power bills for the period were down by approximately 80% which is significantly more than I had anticipated. I borrowed the money to fund my system and I'm still in front, so very happy with that.

We opted to invest in the Solar. Web wifi monitoring app. While installation wasn't exactly straightforward, Mark Hall from GreenLogic took care of it and set it all up. The huge advantage is that - combined with the Smart Meter we had installed at about $300 I believe - we can monitor our production and consumption to every 10 minutes exactly, and hence adjust our operating hours for power hungry appliances such as pool pump, washing machine and dishwasher to when we produce the most energy. With new appliances you can even test whether using them alongside others you will go over your regular production or not. Brilliant. As a result our household runs smoother AND far more efficiently. In short, a smart meter and web monitoring app are very, very much worth the investment.

I have the Fronius primo 5kw. The inverter seems to alway have state code 567 listed. My inquiries lead me to believe that is because the voltage coming in from the grid is too high. The result is that the inverter ramps down and my peak generation has dropped from a maximum of about 5.3kw to 4.6kw. I don’t really know what to do about this. It essentially means that my ROI is now considerably reduced. Buyers beware of these claims.

We often get notifications (1 or 2 times a month) saying AC voltage is too high. This message is normally early in the morning (although can be any time). Our installer told us it was just related to a spike when the sun just starts hitting the panels. I am not sure if that is correct and it always bothers me (as I do think of the possibilitybof fire), but the installer assures me it is ok, and within set limits, otherwise the system would shut down if it reached unsafe limits.

No maintenance required with the installer happy to attend if there were any dramas which created peace of mind.

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.

Can't really comment on system performance as the Smart Meter is yet to be installed so system is turned off.

Absolutely reliable, with no issues. Web based monitoring good. If the inverter is in full sun (ie not the ideal) then the internal fan can make some noise,like a loud computer fan.

Monitoring is the best feature. It gives an accurate and live picture of consumption vs power generated.

The signal strength from the inverter to my wi-fi modum and consequently my Fronius phone app, was too weak at times, showing "Offline". This issue has since been resolved with the installation of a signal booster/relay.

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.

It loses witeless connectivity periodically but that is not its fault. The problem is it only retries to reconnect for 24 hours, then gives up retrying.
Wish I was a machine that only had one job to do, then was allowed to just give up.
