We need to replace a Solar inverter, any recommendations for a good quality inverter, preferably with a long manufacturers guarantee would be much appreciated.
Our system is a domestic 14 panel 4kw array. We are in the UK.
I ask the question because the wealth of knowledge in our Naim community is quite remarkable.
Another vote for Solar Edge, they give much longer Warranties than the others. Make sure that your panels are connected in parallel. Solar Edge provide an app so you can monitor how much power you are getting. at the moment we are getting 2.79 kw and have received 6.68 kw so far today and 21.66MWH since the Solar Edge inverter was installed in 2015.
I’m pretty sure my extended warranty contract is with the company Solar Edge itself - but I don’t know the exact name of the legal entity it’s with.
I think some (extended) warranties are similar to insurance policies (i.e. the manufacturer sells off the liability to an insurance company), but I have the impression that my extended warranty is with Solar Edge itself - but in truth that’s more of a guess on my part!
I run a Sunny Boy 3000TL which has no fan so is silent. It is in the rafters above my listening room (the solar collectors on the roof above that) and doesn’t affect the sound in any perceivable way. I do not know how long the warranty is, but has provided me faultless service since August of 2011. It is German made, by a company called:
SMA Solar Technology AG
