Enphase inverters, what's the fuss?

Let’s not waste your time telling you the benefits of Enphase inverters. Finding your way to this post, there’s no doubt you’ve had the run through by so-called sales gurus and alternative blogs. You’re here because you want the juice. The information you need to know before committing to an above-average solar investment.

Enphase Inverters Perth WA Product Feature. 

The latest edition of the Perth Solar Warehouse solar price list doesn’t include Enphase inverters. Enphase is strictly on demand! However, by request, receive the following:

  • Fully installed 3.3kW, 6.6kW & 10kW+ Solar system prices.
  • Exclusive discounts & interactive price guide.
  • Mix & match solar panel technology.
  • AC Coupled energy storage options.
  • Energy production guide.
  • Estimated savings potential.
  • Payment plan options & more!
The best Enphase Inverters Perth  & Bunbury WA customers love. A must view before buying. 

Enphase microinverters certainly have their place. However, does that automatically qualify them for your installation? NO. Fact is, Enphase inverters have successfully evolved, and in 2020 there are selected models/ system combinations you no longer need to consider.

Beyond being sold a dud (outdated model), you need to know if the price is right, especially when combined with your ideal solar panel selection. Once again, PSW Tech Support to the rescue with your ultimate product insight!

INSIDE!

Which to avoid?

Enphase is now successfully producing its seventh-generation devices. A result which renders previous generation Enphase models as an avoid on the PSW scale of inverter selection. There’s nothing wrong with the past models in their time. However, when investing a reasonable sum into advanced technology, you deserve the latest tech.

Which to consider?

Here’s the thing with Enphase. The difference in generations will often make little difference for the correct panel size — minor efficiency tweaks, slight output differences, etc. The evolution indeed occurs within the communications gateway, the Enphase Envoy (explained further later). 

Back to the Enphase inverters, so many generations are almost forced as solar panel efficiencies and peak power ratings improve over time. Therefore, it’s necessary to be releasing new inverter models every few years.

In this case, newer or bigger isn’t always better. One must consider the system as a whole to determine if an Enphase inverter is better for the task. For Perth and Bunbury region customers, it’s all about combined system AC output. The limiting factor which you must exploit to ensure maximum possible kWh from a system when grid/ feed-in tariff limitations are in play from either Western Power or Synergy.

What is the warranty?

Australia has some pretty enduring conditions up on the rooftop. Just think of the middle of Summer. That’s why Enphase inverters are equipped with a reliable 10-year product and service warranty.

Different from alternative 5+5-year warranties where the second 5-years is a parts only guarantee. Enphase inverters define consumer assurance with 100% backing if installed to manufacturer specifications.

To ensure your Enphase inverter system is installed to manufacturer specification, ensure you utilise an Enphase endorsed installer such as Perth Solar Warehouse.

Where are they made?

Much like the Apple iPhone of solar, Enphase is designed in California, assembled in China. As with many alternative advanced solar technology brands, Enphase’s strengths lie within design, technology, software and support. Therefore, manufacturing is successfully outsourced through key partners such as Flextronics in China to ensure such sophistication remains affordable for many.

What do they cost?

An Enphase system isn’t necessarily “Open Source” and therefore utilising it as a replacement inverter technology to an existing system isn’t practical. Incorporating Enphase inverters as part of a new system though has many unrivalled benefits and cost differentiates manly between module selection and installation variances.

Enphase solar system options (dependant on panel selection):

  • 3kW: $4990 – $6990.
  • 6kW: $6990 – $12990.
  • 10kW: $12990 – $24990.

Which is ideal for you?

Here’s the great news. Both current Enphase models work with single & three-phase power supplies. Tick. 

Now, you may be selecting a larger solar panel wattage. However, this doesn’t automatically qualify the IQ7+ as the ideal candidate. Yes, the IQ7+ does possess a larger DC input power range, but the key for most is the nominated AC output power as this defines grid limitations. 

Inverters are built to cope with module oversizing. Your mission is to ensure that baby can output its peak power for longer — a result which exploits grid limitations and is also endorsed by Enphase.

Oversize, oversize, oversize! Taking into account the objective is to oversize as much as possible (33% allowable by the Clean Energy Regulator in Australia), selecting any solar panel less than 315W almost seems a waste of technology. You’re investing in superior technology, max it out!
