About Huawei, Solar Inverters

Huawei solar inverters review

Huawei is a huge China-based company and while it is primarily focused on telecommunications, it is also the world’s largest manufactureer of solar inverters based on gigawatts of capacity.

Huawei says that in 2019, it became the first string inverter brand with 100 GW of inverter deployment globally.

The Huawei solar inverters available in Australia have a 5 year full replacement warranty with an additional 5 year period whereby Huawai will replace a unit or parts for free - but won’t pay for labour.

Inverter is quiet - in my garage, but one of the worries was choosing one without knowing the sound and reading reviews. For those wondering, in colder April-may months i would rate the sound as negligible. And not audible enough to cause issues if it is walled off (i.e. different room or wall to where you're sitting). Even standing in front of it i wouldn't notice ambient noise. In summer it might crank up, but obviously i can't comment on that.

It may also be due to not having a fan cooling like Fronius, but noise wise - no issues.

I haven't been hitting 5kw max performance but only summer time will tell if the inverter and panels are running to specification as install was late April. I'm still even in May clocking up 30-32kw production days when there is no cloud cover, which is much better than the solar reports provided on feasibility quoted before i proceeded with installation.

Good performance, seems very efficient. No fans so they’re quiet but they get very hot, mine are in the shed. So I leave a door open on hot days. Already by 8am we’re usually exporting power if it’s sunny (in autumn) so they seem to extract decent power from the panels (decent MPPT). Has had good uptime, only issue I really had was with tripping circuit breakers. I haven’t yet gotten the Huawei web interface going as the wireless signal to my shed isn’t strong enough. I’ve just read the power meter to determine performance (current import/export kW, etc). Have accessed the inverters using their built in wireless interface and phone app but it’s clunky and often doesn’t work. Overall I’m pretty happy with these, so far been reliable and the hardware seems good quality.

Same experience as many others. The inverter seems solid; still solid & we are 3 years down the track. Very happy with the device itself. We also got the smartmeter & again - solid & good device & gives all the metrics we need. The app & instructions though are painful. PLUS the support is dismal & portal subscriptions (email reporting) is issue prone. We have had twice now where I have no doubt they have made service/website updates that have broken the report subscriptions & getting it fixed is a complete pain. Broke again latest on 18-19APR & after community forum posts & emailing & raising ticket it is still..... not sorted.

Very confusing instructions on how to download and set up the FusionSolar app (once you figure out that is the app you need and how to download it on an Android phone since it is NOT in the Play store) and even more convoluted instructions on how to change settings (e.g. wifi password of WLAN router). Which is a pity since from the reviews this is an excellent value for money high quality and top performing inverter.

All good apart from data export from Huawei inverter seems tricky (but you can view the data online no problem).

Good inverter, and great that it allows for DC optimisers on some of the panels (we got optimisers on 12 out of 27 panels, in a section of the roof that is shaded for part of the morning).

Only issue that Huawei's Android phone app for monitoring and communicating with the inverter isn't available through Google Play store. It has to be downloaded and installed through a web browser, and my company phone's security policy did not allow that.

I was able to work around this by installing the app on an old Android phone that I no longer use for anything else, but still a drawback that Huawei isn't fully integrated into the Google / Android systems, probably due to general security concerns.

Allows for direct battery connection and 3phase power.
Just be aware that if mounted inside the inverter does produce heat like a small wall heater in the peak of the day.

Monitoring module in the Huawei inverter kept dropping off from the WiFi and the entire inverter had to be replaced under warranty. Everything has been running smoothly since then.
