About Solaredge, Solar Inverters

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 like 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.

The 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 optimsers and  say they've had very few issues.

A relatively new design of inverter SolarEdge introduced is the very compact 'HD Wave'.

SolarEdge inverters come with generation monitoring as standard with optional consumption monitoring. I recommend paying a little extra for consumption monitoring so you can actually 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. 

SolarEdge Inverter Warranty Notes

They have one of the best standard inverter warranties in the industry at 12 years. The optimisers are warranted for 25 years.

Here in Australia, the company runs a local office in Double Bay, NSW, where they service the local market. 

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 with the inverter and process the warranty claim.

If you have a SolarEdge inverter installed, feel free to share your experience with us by hitting the green button above.

Inverter performs well. I'm very happy with it.
The inverter is designed for passive cooling but I've installed some makeshift forced ventilation of the cooling fins. That forced cooling drops the internal temperatures from 70 deg C down to 50 deg C (during summer and full output).

I do like the monitoring website that accompanies it.

My only problem has nothing to do with the inverter per se. rather with the grid voltages. During certain times of the day, the grid AC voltage rises (sometimes up to 255 or 256 Volts). The inverter throttles back its output during the periods of higher voltages meaning I don't get the full benefit of the system. Some days are worse than others - whereas some days there's no problem at all.

2x 2.5kW wave HD master/slave setup.
WiFi monitoring is trouble free and all data is archived. Modbus would add facility (way too expensive at $800) but using Western Power smart meter import/export indicator and basic output from monitoring allows for some judicial use of appliances to maximise PV harvest.

The inverter did not come with a wifi antenna so it had trouble connecting to my home internet. However, the supplier installed this free of charge. The only ongoing issue with the wifi unit is that if we change the home network or password, we would need to call the installer to come and connect the wifi again. At the moment, there is no provision for owners to be able to change their network passwords and re-connect to the inverter themselves.

Installed since January 2019. Had to install 2 as have 2 separate phases to house. Both appear to be working well along with the power optimisers (very variable shading due to trees) and no failures yet. Interface application provides good information so can see what is being produced, used and exported in real time. Link to SolarEdge is mostly reliable (rare dropouts on server so don't get current data but comes back within a few hours and no data lost).

Very reliable system, noticed an immediate drop in power prices and to maximise the value of the system I installed a battery 6 months later. Whilst the system performs OK in winter as expected both in terms of generation, export and storage - in the warmer months it is very impressive, generating 40kWh per day on the hotter days, exporting 20kWh or more and powering the house after dark until midnight or later. To me this proves that investing more in higher quality components (panels, inverter, battery) was worth it as opposed to trying to spend less up front which I’m sure would not deliver the same performance benefits, even if the ROI is a bit longer.

The inverter (3 phase) is very efficient and is paired with Solaredge panel optimisers creating excellent power production. However Solaredge inverters do not allow owner configuration, including home network setup. That's right folks, you change the password of your home WiFi network or replace your router, expect a call-out fee so they can come and configure the inverter to get it back onto the network. If I had known this earlier I would have chosen a different manufacturer.

Comes standard with app to view power generated by solar panels. There is an extra cost to the system to have the app provide power consumption and exported to the grid.

Solaredge inverter looks to be very good quality and makes no noise like some other brands.
My roof gets some marginal shading on 1 or 2 panels in the winter mornings and progressive shading late afternoon.
I selected a system with power optimisers to maximise the system output due to this occasional shading.
Output is slightly down currently due to it being mid winter here in Sydney which is totally expected (lower sun equals lower output).
If that is an issue then you should size up with your panels.
Surprisingly the cost was comparable to a good quality string inverter system.

The monitoring app is great, but the only downside with our model is that the user (owner) can't currently reconnect the wifi connection if it drops out - we found this out the hard way when we had to replace our router, requiring a service technician call, but this was provided at no cost by our installer (Solar Energy Answers). This being said, SolarEdge are planning an app update that will allow users to do this.

It's great - when it works! We had this with LG panels and Tesla battery installed by bradford/csr solar. Installed in the garage, it was flaky, but ok - I had to restart it a couple of times a month. Then we had a total failure. Bradford were excellent with running me through the diagnostics and organizing a replacement. When I hadn't heard for a couple of weeks, I rang them to advise and they were still waiting for a date from the installer... waited some more and then rang to get installer details so I could find out what the hold up was. TPG let me down, as the emails advising me of what was happening didn't come through until hours after being sent - in one case 24 hours. Eventually found out that the problem was waiting for the manufacturer to send a replacement unit. I think SolarEdge are having difficulty keeping up with demand. Then had to wait for install date, so ended up being around 4 weeks without solar and battery from memory. New unit works beautifully, hasn't missed a beat. I love solar edge reporting and am really happy when it finally works as intended.

We had a communications board fail on the inverter about 6 months after installation, so no performance monitoring was possible for several days. We contacted the installers, Solar Hub, and they immediately went through a comprehensive trouble shooting process over the phone. When it became apparent that the problem was a hardware issue, technicians arrived and installed a replacement part a few days later. The only delay in this process was the time taken to get the new part sent out by the manufacturer. All fixed within a week or so.

I went with the solar edge consumption meter and their monitoring software and am really happy with that choice and with the way the data is presented on my phone or laptop. I love knowing how much power we produced, what we actually consumed and what proportion of our consumption was from the panels. i.e. no estimating in regards to the cost savings the solar panels are delivering.
The only thing missing from this system: It doesn't seem to have an alert system to inform me if production drops below expectation which I understand the monitoring system Finn recommended has. I check it every few days - which only takes a few seconds - so I think I'd notice if something was up.

A lightning strike killed the inverter via the ethernet cable (it also killed my cable modem). Solarpro quickly arranged for a replacement (supply was an issue since there were many zapped that night). Fortunately it was covered by my home & contents insurance.
My Telsa battery was unaffected but it has 3G connection to the internet and no ethernet cable. If you have the option I would recommend the same for the inverter.
Lessons: fit a surge protector to your ethernet system (noting that is no guarantee of lighting protection) and/or unplug your inverter's ethernet cable if a storm is coming and check about cover for panels, inverter and battery with your insurer. At the time my system was installed I contacted the insurer and was advised (by chat text) that they were fixtures and therefore covered. I increased my insurance coverage by the value of the system so there was no doubt.

This is a premium inverter, but worth it. If you are getting premium panels with a performance guarantee, then the only way you will ever know if a panel is underperforming is if you have individual panel monitoring. The individual monitoring has already saved us money as the installer was able to identify some issues after the initial install and reconfigure them for maximum performance. If you are investing for the long term, you want a good system with individual monitoring.

I had a couple of weeks of grid spikes that caused the inverter to continually shutdown and recycle.
The codes it produced were useful in helping identify the issue, however, the human part of the equation took a while to resolve the issue as I had to get Ausgrid to come and look into the spikes and then put some taps on the line.
Will be interesting if this will impact the inverter over the long term - right now its all good.

I think the inverter is fine. What is truly annoying is the grid authority's rooting around with it for some kind of stabilisation. It makes the system switch off if the output voltage doesn't match some parameter related to the grid. They're very unhelpful about the necessary fine tuning to stop it switching off capriciously.

System is operating as expected. No problems at all. Solar energy generation is less than the optimum of the system as installed, but I expected that with both shading and the onset of winter affecting overall performance. By the end of the full 12 months, I expect our electricity bills to have been reduced by about $1400 per year, and a pay back period in the region of 5 to 6 years is in operation. regards Ray

The optimisers do well here in VIC since we get quite some clouds throughout seasons. The web interface however could do better with better with the data & charts, as it's hard to monitor & identify which panels are not performing optimally. The only way to go about this is to download the data and perform your own analysis. Also, measurements (e.g. power) are taken at different times. Making it challenging to do a like-for-like comparison.

The only problem I have had with the system is that the energy company that I have signed up with did not adjust the meter properly, so our property was receiving over 250 volts to our switch board and inverter. The inverter had a cut out switch 0f 256 volts so the inverter would shut down the solar system. Jims (the installer) and solar edge both got onto my supplier and got them to adjust the meter input max to 250 volts. have had no problems since then.

C.S.A. installed 20 Canadian Solar panels with 20 solar optimizers . The reason for the optimizers was that we have large trees all around our house so these give us great shade , this is good for us but not good for solar panels. despite the shade issue we are getting between 15 and 30 kwh per day and this has dropped our quarterly electric bill from about $550 to about $150.

The inverter seems to be working well as far as making lots of power for us, but it's interferring with our TV reception. We live in Melbourne and Seven network is on the lowest frequency band, VHF 177.5MHz. Then SBS on 184.5MHz and Nine network on 191.625MHz. These are the three networks I have trouble with, especially Seven. On a cloudy day like today, no problem, but when the sun comes out Seven can be unwatchable. When solar was first installed we had lots of cloudy days, so it took some time to recognise the link - which I proved by shutting down the inverter and observing the difference. I am waiting for a reply from SolarGain (installer) and Solaredge (maufacturer) as to any possible fix.

We purchased a SolarEdge SE5000H unit through Soltek. The unit failed exactly three months from installation and had to be replaced under warranty. The fault was never explained to me (despite repeated requests for information from my installer, this I find very disappointing). Fault was Error Code18xB7. Another key issue was the system did NOT alarm me to notify that there had been a fault so it was a week later that I just happened to check the system and noticed power was not being generated. Again despite asking repeatedly, it was never explained to me why the alarm system failed to notify. The time to resolve the matter was 31 days from failure to back online. I believe this should have been resolved in a matter of days not weeks. It is not clear to me where the reason for the delay lay due to poor communications and information by both the supplier (SolarEdge) and the installer (Soltek). Out of exasperation, I ended up contacting SolarEdge directly who advised me they had no record of the inverter failure and the need to replace the unit at which point I did not know who to believe. It is difficult to provide accurate facts as to who was responsible for the length of time to resolve the matter and who was responsible for the unit failure and the alarm failure to notify.

The Inverter does the job and the monitoring is really great though a bit addictive. I do have problems with it restarting a lot due to High AC Voltage Errors. Once I worked out how to check the logs I've been keeping records as the inverter only seems to keep about 4 error log entries at a time.
It seems that the High AC Voltage error is not uncommon but it's my main and quite concerning issue with the entire installation. I am stuck between the installer blaming the energy provider and the energy provider not getting their act together to check the grid voltage to our house.
I've checked out your article: https://support.solarquotes.com.au/hc/en-us/articles/115001759153-My-Inverter-Keeps-Tripping-or-Reducing-Power-On-Over-voltage-What-can-I-do-
I've asked the installer for the VRC but they have not provided it. I will hassle them but I think they will point me back to the power supplier (who I have been waiting on for months) anyway.
My main concern is that the problem is the resistance in our connection to the street as I can pretty reliably cause an error if I turn off my pool equipment in the middle of a hot day resulting in a big spike in our output into the grid. The High AC error and subsequent resetting of the inverter happens reliably after the pool heater timer switches off especially if it's a really sunny day. If it is our wire I suspect it needs to be changed and I think the installer should have taken that into account at the time of install.
It's all a bit frustrating as I am worried we might be damaging our equipment everytime it trips not to mention Sunny days are often no where near as productive as they should be.

Has all the features required to monitor performance of the system wirelessly plus its ready for installing a battery. If I have one regret its not installing a 5 kWh system to future proof my solar generation system on several occasions I asked SolarHub if I would be better off (subject to costs of course) installing a higher capacity system and was advised it isn't necessary but they could have recommended I incest in a higher capacity inverter (maybe this cannot be done with only a 3 kWh array of panels). I am very happy with our experience and the installation of our system.

Inverter model 7300 solaredge CPU Version 3.2221

I have chosen to get the best possible quality products available in the market at the time for two main reason, performance and warranty for 25 years on Panels and Inverter.
The system installed is a 7.6KW with 22 state of the art at the time panels 340W Sunpower with a 500W optimisers and 7300 series solaredge inverter.
Importantly the reason why the solaredge was deployed is due to the functionality and visibility of the system.
Over the past 8 months the system is installed I have raised many questions about the performance of the system with mainly the solaredge company as the rest of the system and the panels are definitely over performing so full stars ******* for the sunpower panels there.
Can't say the same for the solaredge unit as I have been spending quite some time analyzing its performance and output I have found that the company is misleading their customers by providing information that the unit is accurate of its operation and capabilities to perform as per the systems design.
Over the many months of daily analyzation of my system and benchmarking it across a couple more I have proven and discussed the low performance and translation of power the unit is displaying being very inaccurate.

Here some faults and facts I have found:
1. Inverters Error recording software page on the dashboard has stop communication: This page is important to review errors the unit is producing incase of a shutdown etc. The solaredge company had not idea about this bug which they introduce during a dashboard upgrade late in 2017. 3 months later the issue is still there with no feedback as to what caused it and how they will fix it.

2. Solaredge Performance translation and peak power inaccuracies. The unit is recording clearly Power from the two strings correctly at the string dashboard area including the losses which we expect to have for example when both strings provide a 6.5KWS for a period of more than 30 minutes which is enough for the unit to record, however, the unit fails to translate and display correctly the true input to the output power with a result of not working to its output performance for its design. in fact the output power for this case is recorded at 5.6kWs with a grid voltage at 247.5V
The issue has been noticeable even more with a new software installed from solaredge remotely which in my view is throttling the unit to provide peak power even when the Grid voltage is well with in the limits and under 255V which is the limit for the Ivertors to either turn off or limit the output power. In my view the solaredge company is programing clearly these unit to lower the power of the output when the Grid voltage is only found to be with in the limits at 248V to possible look after the unit for their interest but they are stealing power from the owners in my view as the limits are not even close. This is something that no ones is explaining during the sale of the system.

3. The unit intermittently after the new software installation stops communicating with the cloud server and the unit must be hardware and power rebooted at this stage.

Overall: The engineers at solaredge do see all of these issue for now 3 months with no resolution while their manager who we have escalated these issues is finding every excuse in the book to run away from the problem by blaming the electricity company in the area providing a high Grid power which is clearly with in specification of the Australian standards and the unit must be programmed accordingly and not over programmed as found. The inconsistencies and misleading information received form the solaredge company is a joke at the moment as they are hoping that people will not analyze or capable of doing so their systems since that's the reason they are in the market leaders.

We purposely chose a solar edge converter because we have panels on 2 sections of our roof, front & rear. Each panel works individually back to the system.
Most other systems work on a string system which means the electricity generated by the system only goes back at the rate of the lowest panel. So the electricity generated by a string system is less, especially so if you have panel in different directions.
The other alternative is to have more than one inverter.

As with most of the solar-related products, it's difficult to apply a rating as I don't really have a basis for comparison. Equally I'm not really sure how to distinguish between the performance of the Inverter and Solar Panels.

Purchased 3kW inverter in April 2017 and it has not performed as it should. Over a month ago I complained to the installer who decided to check my inverter. This was found to be faulty and Solar Edge was contacted. They advised they could fix and that we would be happy with the result. Over a month later I am still waiting for parts to arrive. (Obviously from another country)

This inverter is linked to our home wifi and allows us to download performance & output data direct from Solaredge.
This is great for comparing output on sunny & cloudy days. Our 5.8kW system is generating an average of 37KWh on the sunny days of Oct & Nov so far, Dec is slightly higher.

It was the wrong one. I asked for a 3 phase inverter, as I have 3 phase on the house and I was concerned that I would have the issues that you refer to on your website regarding the supplier changing the software on the meter to benefit them.
I only found out from the installers, after it had been installed that it was a single phase inverter, I am assuming that the sales man from Expert Solar Services put the single phase inverter in to keep the quote lower.
As a result, I had to get an electrician to rewire my power boards (I have a sub board as well) so that most of the power I use during the day, is on the solar phase.

Regarding the Inverter itself, it seems to work OK, there hasn't been any obvious problems, after 8 months of operation.

The inverter works OK but after fitting an LG Battery (RESU10H) the monitoring portal information is rubbish!

The panels apparently operate at midnight,solar production decreases overnight( every night) by about 300w ,the portal monthly production figures don't mach the inverter or the overview information on the portal itself!( over 90kWh difference after 3 weeks in July!)

On top of this about 33% of my excess energy is still going to the grid instead of the battery! Apparently the inverter can't efficiently handle switching between grid and battery? Altogether very disappointing.

I should make it very clear that I chose the SolarEdge Inverter to handle shading of panel problems, and to handle different models of PV panels (old and new). I then searched for a SolarEdge installer with a good reputation who would install at my location and I have no complaint whatsoever with SolarWise Wagga Pty Ltd who did an excellent job.

This SolarEdge System has only been installed for seven months, not one year. Installation delay due to non-availability of Back-up Inverter, i.e., one that would switch to battery supply (if and when installed) when the Grid failed for whatever reason. It was purchased under a special offer that included supply of a free 3G mobile connection to the Internet which I wanted so as to avoid them blaming my Internet connection if the Inverter did not communicate properly. Installation included a SolarEdge Smart Meter to show me what power was generated, consumed (own PV and grid), and exported. System arrived with NO 3G modem and was connected to my Internet connection instead. The Inverter worked fine, but the communication was delayed for anything from 5 hours to several weeks (at which it lost/dumped data). SolarEdge would not accept responsibility and blamed my Internet connection, and would not supply the 3G modem I was entitled to. Funny how I don’t have problems with my Internet connection or use!
I never wish to deal with that particular SolarEdge individual involved ever again.

After three months my original installer was able to extract the 3G modem from SolarEdge for me, and it was installed (along with other work by a second installer) in the Inverter in March. It required a change of the Inverter’s communication board (which was done) AND an installation of a later version of the operating System which was not done because SolarEdge at the time failed/refused to supply the said operating system to the second installer. (One and a half months later the second installer now has the operating system upgrade ready to install.) So at the moment the 3G modem is not operating and the Inverter is still connected to my Internet connection. It now communicates every hour mostly (should be about every ten minutes) but sometimes only every half day, BUT now the Inverter no longer communicates with the SolarEdge Smart Meter (which cost $1150) so the only information I sometimes get is the total power amount generated by the system up to that time of day. If I want to know if the system is operating I have to go to the garage and press a button on it.

This Inverter is a SolarEdge SE6000-RWS 6 kW On-grid and Backup one.
When I investigated adding a battery, I discovered that this Inverter could only handle a maximum of 3300 watts delivered by the battery, which was very surprising as it was rated as 5000 Watt AC Backup Output Power on the brochure. So it was basically useless for reasonable backup as my house is entirely electric except for solar hot water.

Would I buy a SolarEdge anything ever again? NO WAY, just because of the company!

You have either LAN or wireless to monitor the inverter. SolarEdge has a portal https://monitoring.solaredge.com/solaredge-web/p/login to let you see how much KWh your system is producing.

One thing SolarEdge did remove was the 'Status'. It had an 'Good' or 'Failed' status. it let you know if something had happened such as a 'spike' on the network. I've had a 'Failed' staus a few times, this was caused by a spike in the poer network and not the Solar panel system. This has now been removed from the portal, probably due to me ringing up asking to reset the satus.

I will never give a 5* rating for any thing. There is always room for improvement. I have a 7.5KW system. It produced the other day just over 50KW. Next door has a similar size system and I usually produce double what he is getting. He is very impressed with my system. The rebate is horrible and the Energy Suppliers charge a Service Fee which covers there office cost and reading of the meter. So that is a Cop out excuse that the Government gives. If anything would stop me putting Solar on it is the Government Rebate on return Electricity to the Grid. I believe as Solar produces Power where it is at peek demand and this saves having to build new power stations it should be a KW swap. Not 6.5c KW.

Only problem if you could call it a problem is that the software needs resetting in it - it doesn't reset each night so as to give an indication on the digital display of how much power has been generated on any day.
