Growatt Solar Inverter Reviews

The only issue is the poorly lit display that is almost impossible to read to ascertain power performance.

I was informed by the inspector that it is best to install the inverter away from direct sun, so think solar put up an awning to shield it.

My growatt inverter (3000MTL) has given me great service since installation when a fuse blew.
I contacted the manufacturer in Shenzen China by email and within a few hours a replacement was in transit and is scheduled to arrive within 5 days. When you live in Rural/Regional Australia, are on the age pension with a health condition, you just don't get better service than that. Well done Growatt, that is exceptional customer service - the best I have ever experienced, and I am 73 years old.

I bought my Solar Panels and Inverter in 2013 at first it was really good I had 3.5KW with a lot of sun as I have no overshadowing from trees or other buildings, residential it did really well and I was getting credits. Now in 2018 I cant say I'm that pleased with it, I've been paying accounts ever since. I am extremely careful with my usage only the refrigerator is on all the time and all other switches turned off. I do my clothes washing once a week and have a water saving dishwasher and washing machine both on cold water. I don't know it doesn't seem to be working as well as when I first bought it I haven't changed my habits so you would think I'd still be getting credits but I'm not. I wouldn't buy another one.

It is actually 5 years old as I originally had a 2kw system installed in 2012 with a 5kw Growatt inverter.

In 2016 I had an extra 3kw of solar panels installed and utilized the original 5kw Growatt inverter.

I have had no issues with any part of the system at any time.

Stopped working when the temp outside reached 42 degrees, the temp in my shed were the 3kw inverter is installed, was too hot to touch, and failed to work.
It did work when the temps dropped to a reasonable level.

Had our inverter under 5 months and it's
Dead
Many calls to Euro Solar and numerous emails from them to Growatt leave us extremely worried about their ability to service their product. We are left in 40 degree heat running our 3 phase refrigerated ac without any help from our 22 panels
At least have the decency to contact us to arrange a service call.

When it was installed I was a little concerned that the installer left the equipment exposed to the weather as the unit is installed on the southern side of the house. I have made a cover to keep the weather off it but retained full airflow around the unit.

I'm not sure exactly what or how to rate the inverter, but it seems to show that the panels are delivering the amount that they are supposed to deliver (close to 3 watts in my case) so I suppose it's doing its job. A bonus is that I have a small device in the house that allows me to read the daily and monthly amounts that the panels are delivering.

We have a Gro-Watt 3000TL. It thinks it's an alarm clock - beeping loudly at 4:30am in the morning with a "PV Isolation Low" error. The manufacturer, seller, nor installer seem to know what to do with this issue. The inverter has been replaced but problem just re-appears later. I would not recommend, unless you like getting up really early.

I paid for an additional software package that attaches through my home router and I can log on to get details of the system's performance from my home computer.
Once or twice there has been some sort of power failure and the system has gone offline and not recorded the data but that is not necessarily a shortcoming of the sysytem.

The first inverter failed within 14 days. Cola solar swapped it over with a new one within 48 hrs. The second one failed again within 14 days. I was given a third inverter within 12 hours. The third Growatt inverter has now been operating for about 6 months without any further problems. The inverter has a 10 year warranty and if Cola Solar maintain their Excellent customer service, there should be no problem.

We have had to replace 2 inverters in 2 years. There may be troubles with spikes in our electricity in our area if what I am told is true, but one has to wonder what will happen when our warranty is up. If we have to replace the inverter yearly, the system would not be worth anything and we will have given away a lot of money that could be used for many other things. Also, as we live in the country, it has taken the company about 8 weeks to get them replaced and installed, with quite a few phone calls not returned and constant reminders. This could be the fault of Renewablelogic or what ever it has changed its name to, or maybe the time to receive the inverter from the manufacturer, I dont know. Either way, we have lost the electricy savings for each time period which is poor.

After seeing on TV problems people had with noise, an aura that made them ill, etc., I was somewhat apprehensive. However, it's nice and quiet, the 'boss' of the installation returned next day to check his assistant had done a good job (he had to make some adjustments), and the system is working well.
