The solar inverter is the heart of your system, that keeps your solar going, day after day.
Keep an eye on your inverter, if there are any problems on your solar system the inverter will generally give you messages and warnings. Check this regularly, at least once a week, and you shouldn’t be getting electricity bills with no feed in. We have listed the most common inverters found in Australia, and included further information about them where we have it. However, just because we list an inverter does not mean we endorse it!
Note this is not a definitive list, we will update this page as and when needed.

Clenergy no longer make these inverters, but there is an office in Melbourne that still look after the warranty, and send out refurbished inverters as replacements if required.

However as the warranty was only first 5 years from installation it is unlikely there are any Clenergy inverters out there that are still in warranty.

This Australian company has been and gone a couple of times, and are not trading any more now, so you have no warranty support for these inverters.

Conergy inverters are re-badged, and the warranty is held with the original manufacturer. There are 2 types of inverters that were re-badged, the Conergy IPG, and Conergy WR1700/2300.

ever solar inverters
These inverters have been breaking left, right and centre. At one time we used to lodge warranty claims for customers and swap them over, but not any more, and by now it is almost certainly outside of the 5 year warranty.
If your inverter is within 5 years, go to their online claim form, and lodge a claim.
Note that you will need proof of purchase and to be the original purchaser to be able to claim under warranty.
Ever Solar have now changed their name to Zeversolar, and SMA now own a large stake in the company. They have a new range of inverters out under the Zeversolar range which were installed until recently, however they are no longer accredited for South Australia.

fronius solar inverters
Fronius have been in business since 1945, are based in Austria, and now have offices world-wide. The IG range of inverters have had issues, but Fronius have dealt with them well. They set up a network Fronius Service Partners who have been to their offices in Melbourne and are trained up. Most problems with Fronius inverters can be fixed on site, and often the Service Partner will have the spare part with them. If we haven’t got the part, it gets shipped from Melbourne and is usually with us the next day.
We are a Fronius Solutions Partner so we can get your inverter back working for you quickly. If you are still in warranty there is no charge for this service. If you are out of warranty we can still often repair your inverter for you, if this is the best option.

growatt solar inverters
Growatt have been in Australia for years, and there are a lot of the Sungold and MTL inverters out there. They come with a standard 5 year warranty, but recently Growatt have stopped paying us for replacing inverters, so you will need to pay to have the replacement inverter swapped over. They are, however, quite quick at sending replacements most of the time, and do communicate well, which is good.

kaco solar inverters
Kaco Powador inverters are no longer sold in Australia, and the warranty is looked after by the Korean office, so we are not sure how well this works. These inverters were not installed in South Australia very often, so not something we come across.
KLNE (Kinglong New Energy) Solar Inverters
latronics (PV edge) solar inverters
This Australian made inverter comes with a 5 year warranty, although the warranty does not cover labour, so expect to pay for that. If you are out of warranty replacing the inverter with a different make of inverter may not be straightforward. The Latronics inverters have different characteristics so we will probably have to rewire the panels to get it working.
The Macsolar inverters seem to have been installed quite extensively in South Australia, and unfortunately this Chinese company is no longer in business. These inverters do not seem to last the distance, which is probably why Macsolar are no longer around. Your only real option here is to replace with a brand new inverter.

sharp solar inverters
Sharp only ever made one inverter, the JH1600E, and although not cheap, it hasn’t lasted the distance. If your inverter is less than 5 years old you do in theory still have warranty, however you will need to go through the company you bought your solar from. If they are no longer in business Sharp are very unlikely to help you.
As these are transformer inverters your system will need to be upgraded to replace this inverter

SMA ‘Sunnyboy’ inverters have been around for a long time, and this German company make great products, and also look after their customers. They have an office in Sydney, and in the unlikely event you have to claim warranty on one of their products, they ship replacements pretty quickly. All their inverters come with 5 years warranty as standard, however it is possible to purchase extended warranty at any time, up until the fifth anniversary.

The Xantrex inverter was available in two models the GT2.8 and GT5.0. Although no longer available, these inverters have been pretty reliable and many are still going after quite a few years. There was an issue with screens fading out, but these have been replaced now. The Xantrex came with a 5 year warranty as standard. However, as they are a transformer inverter the system will need to be upgraded to replace
