About Growatt, Solar Inverters

Growatt solar inverters review

Growatt New Energy Technology Co. Ltd (simply known as Growatt), is a Chinese solar inverter manufacturer that was established in 2011. 

The company's production is located in China, while its offices can be found in many countries; including in Australia. Growatt has a couple of offices here - in Sydney and Melbourne - which provides some reassurance.

Aside from string and central inverters, the company also produces monitoring and energy storage systems. Its Huizhou, China manufacturing facility is huge - covering 200,000 square meters and boasting an annual output of 3,000,000 inverters.

According to IHS Markit, Growatt was ranked the no.1 residential inverter supplier globally in 2020 and 2021 for shipments.

Quantity is one thing, but what about quality?

Growatt inverters are backed by a standard 5 year warranty from the date of installation, and no more than 5 and half years from the date of delivery from Growatt factory. 5 years is a pretty common warranty duration among inverters at the budget end of the pricing spectrum. But for Australian owners, there's also the option of extending this by an additional 5 years online for free on selected models; so a total of 10 years.

Contact details for local Australian warranty and tech support are (02) 80651298 / 1800 476 928, or via email: [email protected].

A couple of things worth noting. In 2021, there was a recall of 8kW Growatt inverters in Australia, affecting hundreds of units. While in the big scheme of things the impact was small when you consider how many inverters Growatt produces each year, no doubt owners of affected units weren't happy with the situation.

There were also some issues with contacting Growatt on its provided numbers; which hopefully has been resolved since.

While not currently on SolarQuotes' recommended inverter brands chart, judging by the reviews below it appears many Australians who have Growatt inverters installed seem pretty happy with them. If you're an Australian Growatt inverter owner, feel free to leave your own review.

Bit tricky to connect the datalogger dongle to my wifi and mobile but found a good YouTube clip which set me on the right path.

As explained above and below, this review is not about Solar Panels and/or Inverters - as the panels/inverter that I have are now 10 years old.

The review is therefore purely about my experience in purchasing a Tesla Powerwall 2 Solar Battery from Natural Solar.

Yes, it is early, and the system has only been running for about 10 days, but so far, I am very impressed with this Growatt 5kw Hybrid inverter and hope it will serve me well.

Need to make sure inverter is Battery ready instead of standard, which will cost more when we want to add battery later on, this is really good information!

It seems to serve the purpose and the app is very convenient, I think Growatt has improved their system and now have 10 year warranty.

It is being replaced under warranty (already approved) due to a minor malfunction in the touchpad. This has not affected the inverter's ability to function.
Update after 12 months. The replacement inverter is not matching the original in terms of power generated. It has never achieved 5Kw, although the original did that on an almost daily basis. The company, Solar Power Direct, has shown little interest, and would not even bother to organise a service call to investigate the issue. Very disappointed.
