SolarEdge solar inverters review

SolarEdge Customer Service: 1800 465 567

SolarEdge is an Israeli inverter company founded in 2006.  It is best known for pioneering the concept of a string inverter matched with individual 'DC optimisers' on each solar panel. These optimisers allow:

  • individual panel monitoring
  • individual panel optimisation (i.e. shade or dirt on one panel will not affect the other panels as in a conventional setup)
  • rapid shutdown of panels in the case of an emergency
  • slightly more energy generation over the lifetime of the system
  • A smaller string inverter because the Multi Power Point Tracking (MPPT) is all done at the panel.

SolarEdge's inverters have historically had a good reputation for reliability and efficiency. In 2018 one reviewer saw signs of emerging poor reliability, while other installers adore the little optimisers and say they've had very few issues.

SolarEdge inverters are compliant with current remote shut down regulations and approved in a number of Virtual Power Plant (VPP) programs across Australia.

Among the safety features of SolarEdge inverters are integrated SafeDC and Rapid Shutdown technology that automatically de-energises DC cables’ to a "touch safe" 1V whenever the inverter is switched off.  

SolarEdge offers a comprehensive monitoring platform with live solar electricity production and household energy consumption through the mySolarEdge app. This enables you to see how much solar electricity is being used by your home, how much is flowing into the grid and how much grid electricity you are importing. 

According to company, more than 2.5 million SolarEdge inverters and over 60 million power optimizers have been shipped worldwide since 2010.

SolarEdge Inverter Warranty Notes

SolarEdge have one of the best standard inverter warranties in the industry at 12 years, which can be extended to 20 or 25 years. The optimisers are warranted for 25 years.

Here in Australia, the company is based in East Melbourne and they have field technicians across the country.

However, your first port of call in case of a warranty issue is the original installer. Regardless of what that business may say; they are the party responsible for addressing warranty issues.

If the original installer has disappeared, SolarEdge advises customers should contact their Australian office on the number listed above. SolarEdge will then refer an installer in their network to the customer, who will then diagnose the issue and assist with rectifying the problem.

Still performing well. The optimisers are fantastic as I am able to see the performance of each panel and monitor efficiency so that if there are any issues I can address them as soon as possible.

Our SolarEdge Inverter has been very good so far, some days it is really surprising to see how much power the system is producing given the amount of light available.
Occasionally we lose the comms to the inverter so current data is not available on the App but it never seems to last more than a few hours and once it is back up again the data is backfilled and the trends are updated.
Overall we are very happy with our purchase.

This was an add on to an existing system, we had A 4.72kw system with a 5kw solar edge inverter. The inverter hasn’t missed a beat.

Quiet. Great app with production and consumption graphs and panel layout details (paid enhancement package).

As far as we can tell, the single phase SolarEdge SE5000H inverter is performing according to manufacturer specifications. During peak operation, the heat sink can comfortably be touched indicating suitable dimensioning.
The only audible noise from the device is a low level click at the commencement and at the conclusion of solar PV feed-in.
Mounted in our garage, the device has a small form factor and attractive aesthetic.
Monitoring functionality on a smart phone includes full visibility of individual solar panel performance, via optimisers fitted to the rear of each solar panel. We're yet to be convinced the optimisers provide any other practical benefit in our particular case, however real-time knowledge of panel performance is very reassuring.

Although we have only had our current inverter for 3 days, we have a SolarEdge at our other property. It has performed without any problems, connects well with the battery (LG) and the WIFI has connected faultlessly.

54 panels x 300w each = 16.2kwh. Optimizers appear very important given each panel varies in output slightly and shade can be a factor. SolarEdge monitoring online is brilliant as it allows us to regulate output for car, hot water, export to grid

Very happy with SolarEdge. There ownership and the fact they honoured a warranty extension on a 3 yr old inverter ( supplied by Bradford) was exceptional.

It seems as though we have to same issue with the inverter as your friend. After reading your article on the SolarEdge inverter having the consumption CT transformer installed backwards our graphs were saying the same as your friends so we forwarded it to Halcol and they will come and fix it. It turns out that because we have 2 phase power they had to do further work on the inverter and everything works fine.

There is so much to know about inverters and SOLARLAB was only to happy to explain the difference between them all and how they work in different conditions especially if your roof has alot of shading as we have

As far as we can tell it's a technically good system. Love the "app" as we can view it all working from anywhere (we are actually 200Km away from the installation). I think we'll be delighted with the inverter and panels - just NOT the company that arranged it all.
