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.

SolarEdge Solar Inverter Reviews

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.

The system is performing better than was estimated in the quote (approx 54kwh per day - early April), perhaps partly due to the exceptional weather we are having. But even so, that's impressive. The app is very well presented and quite fascinating to watch throughout the day. I look forward to my meter being upgraded so I can push some of this power to the grid. Based on currrent consumption, I will be exporting more than 85% to the grid. Very happy with that.

Would like to see it work in blackout even with a small lithium batt. source to run opimisers.

SolarEdge is the heart of my solar system. Everything was designed to accomodate this inverter and optimisers. I can see a big advantage today. It is quite cloudy, but I still generate electricity, but my friend who leaver near by is struggling to get energy from his system that has another brand of inverter. The optimiser really make a difference. I choose this one because of the amount of trees around me, but was surprise to see how efficient is this system even on a cloudy day. SolarEdge with panel optimisers is the way to go for inverters.

Went off line for half a day when apparently some off-site upgrade was being done, otherwise so far so good

See above. Very unhappy with Solar Edge – one of the primary reasons we opted for this system was the promise that we would be able to see how much energy we are producing and using on the app, only to find that energy usage is no longer supported. The hardware is great, but I'm afraid I can't recommend any company that arbitrarily removes one of the key sales features with no explanatkon.

Initially kept on cutting out because grid voltage at our rural property was too high. Installer contacted SolarEdge and organised permission to adjust the inverter cut-offs for higher voltage without voiding warranty. Since then, no more cut outs.

All good so far but we did place a shade cover over the inverter as it was on an outside wall and would have been in full sun up to early afternoon. The shade cover was installed for us by DQ at no cost. The solar edge software is also excellent and useful in comparing usage with our electricity supplier

Inverter is quiet and seems to be working efficiently. I also like the ability to track the output of each individual panel to see if there are any that are under performing.

The inverter seems to take a long time to wake up in the morning. When the amount of energy being generated is very low, it seems to provide inconsistent readings. Once power from the 6.6 kW panel array has reached about 0.5 kW, it seems fine. No failures in the first 14 months' operation.

12 months in and the system has performed exceptionally, and highly responsive to changing weather conditions. I love the APP that gives live updates of the performance of each solar panel as well as longer term trends.
