Wondering whether you should go with a Fronius inverter or a SolarEdge inverter? Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each, to help you make up your mind.
Design features – which solar power inverter is better designed?
Fronius has been praised for creating a flexible inverter that is super responsive and works well in shady conditions. Other bonuses include the meter that lets you monitor your power and divert electricity rather than instantly sending it back to the grid.
On the other hand, SolarEdge works well with your ecosystem of solar panels as a whole, as they can operate individually instead of as a group. This means that even with factors like damage or shade, you’ll likely get a good amount of power converted by your solar panels.
SolarEdge offer a generous 12 year warranty compared to Fronius’s 10 years.
Battery compatibility – how well do Fronius and SolarEdge work with the Tesla Powerwall?
SolarEdge is compatible with Tesla Powerwall, but does not have some of the Fronius features. Fronius inverters offer AC inputs so you can connect a generator to your home, which makes it a good choice if you want emergency back-up for power outages.
Fronius also has a bit of a one-up on SolarEdge when it comes to managing the integration of batteries. Fronius has been making batteries since 1945 so their knowledge when it comes to integrating batteries comes from experience.
The verdict: Fronius vs SolarEdge
Both are solid choices and are currently leading the inverter market. No matter which option you go with, you’ll be investing in a good quality inverter.
If you have single phase power, SolarEdge may be slightly better. Those with three phase may want to choose Fronius. Sometimes you might have a three phase supply but no need for a three phase inverter, in which case you can go either way.

My wife and I decided to get PV Solar Panels and Renew was recommended. We got a number of quotes and Renew were very competitive. We went with a 5Kw system and have been amazed at how our power bills have been cut by more than half. Right from the start, the team at Renew were outstanding. From the girls in the office right through to the team who came to install the system, they were all very courteous and highly professional. After this experience, we've made the decision that when our hot water system needs replacing, we're going to get a solar hot water system from Renew. Steve and his team should be very proud.
The boys have installed the solar system and very professionally done.
Thank you for the excellant service you provided from my first phone call. Your focus to help me with my problem was exemplary.
Even before it was realised that the unit was still under warranty, I felt happy that I was dealing with someone who cared.
Sadly, service from many vendors nowadays do not have the level of care that you provided. It is refreshing to know that it does still exist.
Thank you again
Really pleased with how Renew Energy promptly replaced our rooftop Rheem Solar Hot Water system today. I just called Tania yesterday and Ben and Henry turned up on time with their truck and all the gear. Job was done in one hour without any hassles and we now have the luxury of hot water again.
I plan to have R E replace a Rheem Gas Hot Water Storage Heater on another property in the coming months.
Great to see an experienced team at work that got on with the job without any dramas.
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND RENEW ENERGY for any of your plumbing work.
Thank you Tania for organising and scheduling everything so efficiently
Very professional advice given from their representative who came here and did an assessment of our property and usage. We ordered a 30 panel 3 phase system and it was installed expertly, on the day it was scheduled to be done. Very qualified and courteous installers. Excellent quality system that has perormed with no faults for 3 years and saved us lots on our power bills.i get an email every day showing yesterdays power generated by the system. They are a highly reccomended company.
I would like to say THANKYOU Renewnergy for our new hotwater system. Your service was great and thankyou for installing an interim set up so we had hot water over the weekend . It is greatly appreciated . I can highly recomend Renewenergy.
Re: Solar Installation
The admin staff were professional and helpful, the quote was competitive, the system works but workmanship was very poor. They used sub contractors to do the install who really didn't care. To their credit the supervisor sent the sub contractors back who fixed everything I took issue with, but you can't do much with extra holes in the face brickwork, and the sub contractors didn't mind telling me that they had done nothing wrong.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Renew Energy to anyone who is looking for truly excellent provision and service. We found dealing with them to be really impressive, in fact our best experience in years. The technical advise was comprehensive and addressed our needs accurately, the team who installed our system were skilled, professional, on time and cleaned up perfectly afterwards which is rare these days. A
genuinely caring, professional highly skilled team of people who displayed honesty and integrity from start to finish. We are grateful.
Happy to say I had a good experience with this company. The consultant was polite and knowledgeable and gave me options for a system that I had not considered once he actually came to my house and looked at our previous set up and trees. Others I got quotes from did not even bother to book a time to come to site so in the end I paid more for system that is perfect for our yard setup. The crew they sent to do the work were excellent. I have an old jarrah house and he took the time to pre-drill the holes so my weatherboards would not split unlike other so called tradesmen. Over all very happy and happy to recommend.
Very professional company to deal with. We were very happy with the whole process. This was replacement of an older, faulty unit (not a Rheem system). The installation was completed on the day that was arranged. The installation technicians arrived on time, were very pleasant and professional and the work was done efficiently and quickly. The old unit was taken away and the new hot water system was working straight away, with solar heated water the following day. We are very pleased with the performance of the system. We have recently (in the warmer weather) been able to turn off the gas booster heater and still have plenty of solar heated hot water. I would be very happy to recommend Renew Energy to any other potential customers.
Renew installed my Grandma's new hot water system recently, they were very friendly and prompt with the install. They took away all the rubbish and left everything very neat and tidy. My Grandma is very pleased with her new system!
