About Goodwe, Solar Inverters

Goodwe solar inverters review

Goodwe Customer Service: 03 9918 3905

GoodWe (Jiangsu) Power Supply Technology Co. Ltd is a Chinese company founded by JXT and is supported by the Chinese Government.

The company specialises in the production of string solar inverters, with power ranging between 1.5kW and 80kW. As well as single-phase and three-phase inverters, the company also manufactures hybrid inverters for use with energy storage.

More than 35GW of GoodWe solar inverter capacity has been installed in countries throughout the world, including Australia.

Australian customers will be glad to know there is a local GoodWe office in Glenroy (Melbourne, Victoria), so, should you have any specific question or issue, you can directly refer to the local team. Furthermore, the company has a pretty strong international profile, thanks to other offices located in countries including Germany, Netherlands and the UK.

GoodWe Inverter Quality And Awards

GoodWe is currently listed as a SolarQuotes approved brand, offering good quality solar inverter products for the budget end of the market.

The company was the recipient of EuPD Research’s Top Brand PV Award in Australia in 2019, 2020 and 2021, which is based the recommendations of installers. It also achieved joint 3rd place in SQ's Installers Choice Awards 2021 in the budget inverter category, and scored 2nd place in 2022.

In June 2022, IHS Markit’s PV Inverter Market Share & Rankings report indicated the company came in at third place in 2021 for total MW capacity shipped to Australia.

As well as producing inverters under their own banner, GoodWe also manufactures for several other companies - Australia's Redback Technologies, General Electric and LG. This is a big vote of confidence.

While a solid product with great features for the price, be warned that some Australian owners have commented very high ambient temperatures cause GoodWe inverters to "derate" significantly, which is the internally controlled reduction of inverter power.

GoodWe Inverter Warranty Notes

GoodWe solar inverters installed in Australia were originally accompanied by a 5 year product warranty, which is fairly standard among manufacturers. However, in January 2021 the company announced a boost to 10-years full warranty across its entire range of grid connect inverters installed in Australia, when registered on GoodWe’s portal.

The warranty extension applies to all GoodWe inverters manufactured after October 1, 2020 and installed in this country after January 1, 2021.

Beyond the standard warranty and depending on the model, the warranty can be extended to as long as 25 years, which is an incredibly long period for an inverter.

Regarding warranty claims, the installer who installed your Goodwe inverter is always the first to contact as it is their responsibility to remediate any warranty related issues.

But in the case of the original installation company no longer being in business or are otherwise uncontactable, GoodWe customers are advised to contact  their customer warranty support department directly on the number listed above. GoodWe will then handle the process of sourcing an installer, and arrange for replacement of the solar inverter.

We went with Goodwe over Fronius because of the reports of Fronius being a bit noisy and the inverter was to be installed on the other side of our bedroom wall. When it was installed the Goodwe made a bit of a noise but it only lasted a few hours. Since then has been very quiet and we have not heard it at all even at night. It's simple to use and the app is very informative but the website goes into more detail if you need it.

The Goodwe 5Kw inverter is going well. I have it sending me a daily report via email to assure me that alls well.

Two of my friends have also installed a Goodwe and have had no problems thus far.

I should mention that one of them was left to install his own WiFi set up which is not too difficult However the 'Plant Information' wasent provided by the installer, which made seting up a bit more difficult..
A quick call to Goodwe Support and the helpful assistant was able to login and fill in the required info and bring it online and thus extending the warrany from 5 to10 years.
