Growatt PV Inverter Specifications

source_growatt-inverters-review-uk-35-1024x1024

Growatt manufactures PV inverters suitable for both on-grid, off-grid and storage systems, for worldwide application in residential and commercial or industrial setups. The system allows for full monitoring control, remote firmware upgrades and site-specific settings. Growatt also provides outcall technical support, which is important when something needs repair.

Growatt solar inverters have a maximum efficiency of 97.6% and a wide input voltage range. This robust inverter is perfect for most domestic photovoltaic systems. With an effective Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) facility, the inverter will maximise energy extraction as weather conditions vary. MPPT tracking has more than 99.5% accuracy. Growatt inverters come with a 5-year warranty as standard, which can be extended to 10 years.

The power capacity of Growatt on-grid inverters – which is the normal residential setup – ranges from 1 kW to 100 kW, and its off-grid and storage inverters cover a power range from 1 kW to 630 kW.

Growatt inverters are ideal for roof-mounted solar panel arrays, where they turn the DC power generated into AC power for use. Or buying an inverter and a battery system as well as a solar panel system will be a greater outlay but more beneficial in the long run as it will enable greater savings over time. This will improve the efficiency of your existing system and should reduce your electricity bill.

The company also manufacture batteries, EV charger systems and smart energy management solutions, so has a range of Growatt products that are complementary to renewable energy power setups including solar power and wind turbines.

Growatt Smart Energy Solutions Summary

“Nobody ever got fired by buying IBM” is an old, and probably dated proverb. It means that you should be safe buying from the biggest player in the market. For residential solar inverters, that really is Growatt. They also are good on price so this will help with budgeting your system. The compact design is easy to fit almost anywhere. The inverters are quite robust and should have a decent lifespan. Overall this is a sound choice of inverter for most residential customers.

The only downside is that they have quite a few products on the marketplace and you will need to consult your installer to ensure you have the correct one for the system you are buying.
