About Growatt, Solar Inverters

Growatt solar inverters review

Growatt New Energy Technology Co. Ltd (simply known as Growatt), is a Chinese solar inverter manufacturing company established in 2010. The production plants are located in China, while its offices abroad can be found in Europe (Germany and UK) and in the US; recently, Growatt has also founded its new Australian branch in Melbourne in addition to the one already operating in Sydney.

The company specializes in the production of monitoring systems, EV charging pile BUs, micro-grid BUs, storage systems, string inverters, and central inverters with a power ranging from 1kW to 1.26MW and with an annual production capacity of almost 3.6GW.

Growatt’s production lines are able to supply solar inverters that comply with international standards and for this reason are OHSAS18001, ISO14001 and ISO9001 certified.

Seems to be working fine - the wifi application and dongle isn't the easiest to setup - poorly translated-from-Chinese instructions, but it looks good on the wall and seems to be performing consistently.

After 12 months, can report that the inverter has not missed a beat. The wifi app, despite being tricky to configure, does work well - though it does not support 5ghz networks. Only deducting a star because the initial setup was a bit tricky and the app itself isn't great - but functional.

Connection and metrics are decent and allow integration into Home Assistant. Though the app has an issue with dual inverter systems.

Seems to be working well. Haven't had any issues... Is a good inverter one you don't notice???

So far so good. I just wish I could get a limited access to the setup to adjust the time settings at daylight saving/on/off. Limiting factor has been the grid voltage hitting 253 in our area, so some days the inverter ramps down output, still that's not the inverter faults, it's a grid issue that Powercor need to address.

Great efficiency from my inverter( s)but the first one blew up in 18 months. Mannix a/c replaced for free in a few days and the Second one blew a fuse last week after two years. But I think there are some internal safety issues with growatt. When it is a cold day in the sun peaks through the clouds it goes from 800 W to 5200 W and it blows the fuse which should not happn. Glass 3AG fuses are not suitable for 30 A so this is a design error from China. 3AG fuses cannot handle the stress of going from 0 to 30 A. My first inverter blew fuses too but the second time it was replaced it actually blew up with smoke and everything. When I have cold sunny days I turn one Solar bank off so I don’t experience over power surges from the inverter as it’s not smart enough to down regulate to a maximum of 4600 W which it is rated at. That being said my whole system paid for itself in three years so it is a worthwhile investment for sure.

The original 8.2kW Growatt inverter failed shortly after installation. At this stage I'm willing to accept that it was just bad luck. The installers informed me that Growatt inverters are used regularly and problems are rare. The replacement, so far, is working very well. The Shine Phone App is great for monitoring real-time performance of the system. Although, I'm still trying to figure out if there's a way of telling what proportion of the daily total kWs generated are exported back to the grid and what proportion is my consumption.

Easily hits the maximum rating on a sunny day and comes with a 10 year warranty at the moment. What’s not to like? Wifi connected app is functional and easy to use.

The inverter is giving 5 years warranty and another 5 years extended warranty. It comes with wifi connectivity and I can see all details of current produced online at any time. It also have a point for future battery installation.

I have had a Growatt Inverter operating a 5 KW system on my residence since 2010 and have had no issues with this brand of Inverter since it was installed.

Bought a Growatt 6.6kW solar and 13.5kW battery system from Sunterra in April of 2020. 15 months later, I am very happy with the performance and also the support from Sunterra has been pretty good too.

An example - In the app, I noticed my solar graph on a sunny day was spiking instead of being consistently around 5kW for that day. Sunterra connected to the system and could see immediately that my grid power was a bit higher at times than standard and the protection settings being set very conservatively were causing the system to shutdown and protect the PV panels. The guys adjusted the tolerances and its been running perfectly ever since.

Just need to get a chainsaw to the neighbour's tall trees and my winter performance will improve by 40%!

Early days.
Have been surprised that we are exporting power on even solid cloudy days.
The wifi connection for home performance does not work, have tried all directions and wasted many hours trying. My son has same system and gave up on his wifi also. I have a new modem on order and will see if that will connect.

My home wifi modem was updated, and has been fine since, no connection problem.
