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.

Disappointed that I am unable to see the performance of each panel, however it was the inverter supplier who had removed this feature (which was important to me) without informing the installation company.

Working really well and I highly recommend installing the Monitoring Option.
In my case because I went for the Solaredge Optimiser system, I had the Solaredge MODBUS RS485 installed to allow me to monitor my hourly/daily/monthly solar energy Productions vs Consumptions and Exports.

So; I've only had this system set-up for a week but I'm very happy with what I have so far. I chose the SolarEdge Inverter as it allows monitoring of individual panels performance AND performance of the entire system is not limited by the weakest panel (this was critical for me as I have installed panels on 2 sides of a peaked roof). I also opted for the SolarEdge Consumption monitor which I think is brilliant. I now have a better appreciation for individual power consumers in my home which allows me to better manage my power use. This, in itself, will help me save money on my power bills.

There were some issues around getting everything online with this inverter that required the SolarEdge techs do something on their end (Install was fine - it was a software thing as far as I understand). However once online there has been no issues.

After about 10 months of faultless performance, the RCD on the 240 inverter circuit started tripping occasionally at times of low generation. I swapped out the original RCD. Still tripping. Spoke to a Solar Edge tech and they did some online monitoring and said thay could see no fault, but they did recommend a different brand of RCD, which I tried, but it too would trip out. I have fitted a CB for now and if that doesnt give me any troubles, I will reinstall the AC cable in the manner in which AS3000 says negates the need for an RCD. Solar Edge do say that at 30ma users may experience nuisance tripping, so I think I would be pushing s**t uphill trying to get them to replace the inverter.

The inverter has been performing extremely well so far and the monitoring capabilities are fantastic. The App is really easy to use and I can also export all the data to CSV for further analysis. I've also hooked up the monitoring to my smart home automation so I can schedule appliances around the home based on my solar production.
