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.

The investor is a 3 phase unit with individual panel optimizers linked to a consumption meter, so that we have a complete run down of the system’s performance down to each panel and of course our consumption.

I’m very happy with SolarEdge, we have had no issues in regards to the set up and have saved over $1000 already.
Bought From: SAE Group Port Macqaurie

We have two SE5000 5kW inverters that also charge a battery each (LG RESU10H) and 70 325W panels. Optimizers are installed on each panel. Data is posted on a web page (I log into this). The info is very detailed and can be downloaded in spreadsheets. When the batteries are charging, the inverter makes more power than the 5kW as the extra goes into the battery.

The 10kW generation from the two inverters is the maximum we can have due to limitations placed on the system by the Grid owners (I can safely draw 63 amps from the grid but am only allowed to run 41.6A back into the grid from my system).

I found it hard to get it on line, in fact it took me a week and I'm a little disappointed with the after sales service . No return calls ,I had to initiate any conversations.

6 months on: 6kw inverter , can get it flat lining on a good summer's day. (something you realize when it is at its max out).

Great data coming from the app. Both on the mobile and web based. Makes it sooo easy to see when to put on the washing machine, AC or the dish washer.
it is so sensitive that I can see when a kettle has been boiled!
Great to ensure you are getting the best use of your solar generation.

I love the Solar Edge app as it gives us a great idea of how much energy we're consuming and allowed us to make some simple changes to our habbits and maximise the benefits of solar.

Great apps, easy to use and very informative. I opted for 2x 5kw inverter which added to the cost, but will future proof when I am ready to add battery and will enable my house to remain powered during extended blackouts.
