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.

We required optimisers as we had a shading issue. The app is fantastic in the level of detail provided. We were advised there is no longer an issue with updating WIFI passwords (which was an issue in the previous app).

I had my system installed December 2016, with 5.5. KW of SunPower solar panels.
The SolarEdge doesn't suffer from the weakest link syndromes each panel supplies as much power as possible,
As I keep detailed details of my bills and power production, I know exactly what my return of investment is, my estimate is that the Installation will produce a positive return in +- 12 months after deduction of the investment costs.
Very happy with the system.

We chose this inverter due to unavoidable Winter shading on some panels, however we are yet to evaluate Winter productivity. We also value being able to assess panel productivity individually.

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.
