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.

I got the monitoring app which has been SO worthwhile. It's been a great educational tool to show the kids as well as help us learn about our production and maximise our solar usage.

Nice monitoring application, however I have found the Android App can be out of sync with the Laptop version,

The example here is when we experienced suburb wide blackouts, the laptop app clearly showed solar production ceasing, (big empty gap), but the phone app did not. Not a big one, but worth noting

Well worth the cost the power optimisers do a great job in balancing the power out of my panels and harnessing the solar energy.

Wifi connection to monitoring hasn't been what I'd expect of a top-end system and for that I couldn't give it five stars, but that's my only gripe. Installer has kindly agreed to fix this with a cable connection. Once that's installed, I'd be very surprised if I didn't give it five stars.

Single Phase Inverter even though we have 3-Phase Power, so we added 3-Phase Consumption Monitoring

Very quiet (i.e. silent), compact unit on the wall. Really like the SafeDC technology features. Impressive real-time consumption and generation monitoring platform. Great warranty length as well.

I own a solar company, we recently installed a 10kw solaredge inverter and a 5kw solaredge inverter/car charger.
We managed to program it in a Master/Slave configuration as follows:
Solar Energy will go: First to supply home, second to charge car, third into hot water system, 4th to export to grid.
Thank you Solaredge helping with setup. Everyone happy.

Still performing well. The optimisers are fantastic as I am able to see the performance of each panel and monitor efficiency so that if there are any issues I can address them as soon as possible.

Our SolarEdge Inverter has been very good so far, some days it is really surprising to see how much power the system is producing given the amount of light available.
Occasionally we lose the comms to the inverter so current data is not available on the App but it never seems to last more than a few hours and once it is back up again the data is backfilled and the trends are updated.
Overall we are very happy with our purchase.
