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 a power range between 1.5kW and 80kW. As well as single-phase and three-phase inverters, the company also manufactures inverter devices for use with energy storage.

More than 16GW of GoodWe solar inverter capacity (more than 2 million units) 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 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 and 2020, 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.

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.

It’s only been a week but so far it’s been completely smooth. The app and web interface is easy to use.

It’s able to turn on and produce power even at only a few watts early or late in the day.

They inverter only worked during the winter, so I really have no idea how it would preform in summer as it hasn't - it has failed, but I do not know if this the fault of the inverter or the installation of the whole system.

Seems solid, though I'm curious about power derating/throttling/limiting (for thermal reasons) on exceptionally hot days. I've recently noticed peak power output settle on ±4.6 kW (i.e. 70% overall system efficiency) during high summer (>40°C ambient) and with clear skies. For context, the unit is installed in the indoors (garage) and during these times the internal temperature would easily reach 70°C (obtained via app) due to it's passive cooling design. When looking at the diurnal production profile, it appears as though the output reduces from 5.6kW (nominal) in a stepwise fashion, similar to how CPU's would respond to stress tests. I could not find anything in the published in the owners' manual to this effect. I'll keep digging.

The Goodwe inverter already comes with a solar monitoring app that you can put on your phone. With other inverters such as Fronius, the solar monitoring costs several hundred dollars more as an optional Add-On feature. To have this included with the Goodwe inverter is a bonus.

It has only been working for a bit over 6 weeks but so far I can not fault it. A bit of good news about this inverter is that the company has doubled its warranty period from 5 up to 10 years. I did find that the software for the WiFi was a bit hard to get working but I got there in the end
