Review of Fronius Solar Inverter

A solar panel with the words fronus in front of it.

If we talk about solar installation and the best solar inverters, FRONIUS is one of the big companies at the top of the list. Fronius has been a very modern company since its onset in 1992, opting for renewable and solar energy as its primary objective.

In addition, apart from manufacturing solar inverters, this company has shown great interest in researching and developing the renewable energies of the future.

Fronius Solar Inverter Specifications

  • Made in Europe
  • Up to 97.8% efficiency
  • Easy installation
  • Great WIFI app
  • Built-in DC isolator, for a neat installation
  • 5-year product warranty included
  • Extremely reliable

Residential Solar Inverters

The Fronius GEN24 Plus is a hybrid inverter with integrated backup power recommended for households that do not want to risk running out of power in the event of a power outage.

With this new model, a minimum of energy can be guaranteed for essential household utilities, such as the maintenance of refrigerators and freezers, the use of telephony, etc.

For continuous use and high energy consumption, it would not be the best option because the battery is limited.

Solar Inverter Monitoring

Like almost all companies on the market, Fronius provides a free Wi-Fi monitoring service with all its inverters. Simply with a Wi-Fi connection from your home, you can connect your inverter that will send your data to the cloud so that you can see it on your computer, Smartphone or another device. 

The service is called solar.web and, although with the default, you can only check the solar production, with the addition of a Fronius Smart Meter, you can also see the consumption.

Fronius Solar Inverter Warranty

Fronius automatically comes with a standard 5-year warranty and is very limited in terms of what it covers. It also offers a free extended warranty that only covers parts. Therefore, you must purchase the additional system warranty.

The Fronius Plus Guarantee is a payment guarantee that can be purchased for 5, 10, 15, or 20 years.

The price available on the Fronius website is a payment service. This guarantee covers the materials, service and transport services.

Are Fronius Solar Inverters Worth it?

Fronius inverters are high-performance with a higher self-consumption rate, intelligent control of energy flows and limited energy export on the grid.

They could be considered as a premium product, and to be honest, this is reflected in the price.

But are they worth the cost?

Well, being one of the most well-established companies in the world, its manufacturing and product standards are excellent.

Customers love Fronius solar inverters because this Austrian company was one of the first to start marketing them. Therefore, the trust, safety and quality they promise have been tried and tested for almost 30 years.

They pride themselves on their certificates, and most of their solar inverters are approved by the Clean Energy Council for The Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).

In terms of aesthetics, Fronius is larger and heavier than most solar inverters, but on the other hand, it has a more elegant appearance.

Things to Keep in Mind

One aspect for improvement would be the noise levels produced. We do not advise installing it near the main rooms because it may be a little louder than expected. Instead, Fronius works with a ventilation cooling system.

One of the most common doubts is whether Fronius solar inverters suit the Australian climate.

The Fronius Inverter is a durable product for Australia’s extreme weather conditions. All Fronius inverters are certified by the Clean Energy Council.

Their products have both residential and domestic and self-consumption inverters and industrial inverters.

Purchasing a Fronius Solar Inverter on the Sunshine Coast

If affordability is your top priority, the Fronius Inverter may not be for you.

However, they are one of the most popular inverters on the Australian market for the quality, performance and reliability that the company provides.

The strong performance of these inverters means you get more efficiency and power for your money. This higher efficiency means a shorter payback period for your initial investment compared to inverters from other brands.

Its Australian headquarters are located in Melbourne and has been operating since 2010 and has highly valued customer service from the user.
